The Montreal Anarchist Bookfair -- and month-long Festival of Anarchy --
bring together anarchist ideas and practice, through words, images, music,
theatre and day-to-day struggles for justice, dignity and collective

The Bookfair is for people who don't necessarily consider themselves
anarchists, but are curious about anarchism, as well as a space for
anarchists to meet, network and share in a spirit of respect and solidarity.
All are welcome.

The Bookfair is organized in a spirit of openness towards the different
traditions, visions, and practices of anarchism. Together we share a
commitment to promoting anarchism through the values of mutual aid,
grassroots democracy, direct action, autonomy and solidarity, while opposing
oppression in all its forms.

The Bookfair and Festival of Anarchy provide an important gathering and
reference point for anti-authoritarian ideas and practice in North America.
