Boston Anarchist Bookfair (November 11-13)
08 Nov 2011
Boston Anarchists have become a favorite scapegoat of Mayor Menino and the chief of the Boston Police Department. Come see what all the fuss is about in a weekend of resistance to authoritarianism, oppression, and capitalism! We will host workshops, presentations and vendors from all over New England and the U.S. In addition, we will present the first ever Boston Anarchist Film Festival! You don't have to be an anarchist to attend-- this event is about sharing, listening and collaboration. Come explore the possibilities of collective liberation!
