Bookfair 2018 coming up!

The Anarchist Bookfair Amsterdam 2018 is coming up soon! In the last weeks we have posted the stands that have confirmed in our blog, but a few of those slipped through the cracks (or didn’t have a description to add..). We also have quite a full program of workshops and talks going on and even dinner and music afterwards!

Check out all the stands that will be there! 

And check the program to see if you want to join a workshop or talk!

Hope to see you there!

P.S. could you be considerate of our neighbours and put your bikes in the bikeracks?

P.P.S. We would like to ask you to refrain from bringing your dogs to the Anarchist Book Fair. There will be lots of fragile table setups, there will be children present and we expect there to be very little space left with all the people coming and the almost 50 metres worth of books and pamphlets. A very busy environment that might not be ideal for a dog.

Infotheek Gent

The Infotheek is an anarchist library where you can find critical information that are not available by the score in regular libraries for several reasons. We keep information and books about anarchism, squatting, anti-military struggles, feminism, animal rights, ecological struggle, economics, law and repression, globalization, anti-globalisation, direct action and much more. We have over about 3000 books at the moment that we loan, and we have a large sample of national and international magazines and zines that can be looked through in the Infotheek with a cup of coffee.

AK Press

AK Press is a worker-run collective that publishes and distributes radical books, visual and audio media, and other mind-altering material. We’re small: seven people who work long hours for short money, because we believe in what we do. We’re anarchists, which is reflected both in the books we provide and in the way we organize our business. Decisions at AK Press are made collectively, from what we publish, to what we distribute and how we structure our labor. All the work, from sweeping floors to answering phones, is shared. When the telemarketers call and ask, “who’s in charge?” the answer is: everyone. Our goal isn’t profit (although we do have to pay the rent). Our goal is supplying radical words and images to as many people as possible. The books and other media we distribute are published by independent presses, not the corporate giants. We make them widely available to help you make positive (or, hell, revolutionary) changes in the world. As you probably know, the stuff we carry is less and less available from the corporate publishers and their chain stores.

Anarchist Group Nijmegen

The Anarchist Group Nijmegen (AGN) is a group of people who came together to study and discuss anarchist/libertarian-socialist theory and practice. We try to learn from this, give tendencies and feelings a place and to see how this theory could help in our own practice, dealing with situations and forming vision. This with the aim of bettering our own organisational structures and the way we work together.

Kelderuitgeverij

“The freedom of the printing press is only garuanteed for those who own one themselves.”

This adage it not relevant anymore today, because the possession of a computer and printer is enough to publish texts yourselves. These developments in ‘printing on demand’ is what has led to the start of Kelderuitgeverij.

We dig out non-available texts from the archives of history. Texts that should not be forgotten, memories of and monuments for people who devoted their lives to create a more just society.

Kelderuitgeverij re-designs these texts, puts a new cover on them and makes them available again. Everytime there is only a limited edition that is prepared with the utmost care for the quality of content and form.

Geen Kind aan de Kant!

The debate about refugees makes emotions rise high. Most of the attention is the debate goes to the refugees who have newly arrived in The Netherlands. But refugeechildren who have been here for a longer period of time suffer in silence. Geen Kind aan de Kant! focusses on these children. 

GEEN KIND AAN DE KANT works with refugee children, their parents and multiple other organisations to:

  • achieve an unconditional Children’s Pardon for children who have settled here. 
  • stop police raids at the family locations and the following lock-up and deportation.

On our website you can find more information about the problems we fight against and how we do that: geenkindaandekant.nl
