We are the collective organising the Anarchist Bookfair in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. We have started out in 2017 because of the anniversary of the Infokafe Bollox from the Anarchist Group Amsterdam. The Bollox has a small library for 15 years. Because of the success last year, we have decided to continue organising the bookfair with books, zines, clothing, buttons, publishers, distro’s, workshops, films, talks, vegan food and an evening programme with live music.
We are doing this to build and anarchist movement that can resist the violence of capital and the state. In a time of growing right-wing sentiment it is important to focus on building anarchist infrastructures for an autonomous and militant movement. Anarchist book fairs are an important part of this. They are the perfect place to meet new people and discuss new ideas, to exchange new texts, action and propaganda materials.
