The 8th Bristol Anarchist Bookfair 2016
Building an Anarchist Future
Every year seems to bring more bad news; the poor have to pay for the mistakes of the rich. The cuts have hammered education, benefits, pensions, housing and the NHS. At the same time, global climate change and corporate land exploitation have caused extreme weather patterns, with oil wars and arms sales stirring up conflict across the Middle East and beyond.
However, people have been fighting back, through strikes and the taking up of arms. If capitalism collapsed tomorrow, we ask ourselves: would we be ready?
As anarchists, we have developed concepts around mutual aid, co-operation, and direct action, but how do we put these into practice?
At this year’s Bristol Anarchist Bookfair, we will create a space for people to explore these ideas. How will we create a better, more equal society? How will we hold people to account for their actions, if we abolish prisons and the police? If revolutions happen tomorrow, we won’t have all the answers, and an anarchist society will not occur overnight. But the core principles of anarchism offer us the building blocks for the future, and a roadmap on how to get there.
