Victoria (A) Bookfair [Sept 8 – 9]

The 7th Annual Victoria Anarchist Bookfair

September 8 & 9, 2012

Fernwood NRG Community Hall, located at 1240 Gladstone Ave, Songhees Territories

Welcome!

The City of Victoria, located on unceeded Songhees & Esquimalt Territories, is celebrating 150 years of colonialism through events that promote historical erasure and the triumphalism of the State. This year’s Victoria Anarchist Bookfair responds by celebrating 150 years of Indigenous resistance and anarchist traditions of anti-capitalist, anti-authortarian activism. Colonialism is an on-going project that needs to be dismantled: to this end, we are mobilizing to build opposition against the Northern Gateway Pipeline and other such proposals.

 

  • Doors Open both days @ 11 am – Saturday we close @ 6pm; Sunday @ 5pm
  • Saturday, 11:30 begins with Acknowledging the Territories & Welcome Songs by August Thomas and the Esquimalt Singers and Dancers
  • Workshops take place all day – see the schedule for more information; All areas are wheelchair accessible.

ON INDIGENOUS SOLIDARITY:

The Victoria Anarchist Bookfair Collective supports the struggles of Indigenous peoples throughout North America to assert their cultural autonomy and territorial sovereignty. Victoria is located on the traditional overlapping territories of the Songhees and Esquimalt peoples, who have endured the seizure of their land and repeated attempts to obliterate their culture through multiple forces of colonization. The resilience and strength of these and other communities, who make ancestral connections to this region in the face of injustice, challenges us to support them and all Indigenous people in the ongoing struggle against colonialism, capitalism, and cultural genocide.
