Join anarchists and community members for two days of learning and organizing for a better Boston and a better world. Against the backdrop of the lowest-attended midterm election since 1942 and polls showing historic levels of popular disgust with the government, anarchists are building toward a world without politicians or the billionaires who fund them.
As revolts and revolutions continue to erupt around the world, elites everywhere fear the power of ordinary people organizing to fight for justice. In the U.S., communities of color and their allies are fighting against our violent and racist police and court system; activists and tribal organizations are taking action to stop toxic pipelines and slow climate change; students and university workers are standing up for dignity, power, and an end to harassment on campus; and service industry workers are uniting to fight their bosses.
Boston is one of North America’s cradles of revolution. So it is fitting that for the fourth year in a row, people from all walks of life — from seasoned organizers to the politically curious — will come together in a time in which the ideas, methods, and tactics of anarchism are more important than ever.
More than forty radical organizations and vendors from as far away as California will be selling goods and sharing knowledge at this community event. Consistent with previous turnout, organizers of the Boston Anarchist Bookfair expect hundreds of attendees.

Admission to the bookfair is free of charge.
The Boston Anarchist Bookfair is graciously hosted and sponsored by the Center for Gender, Sexuality & Activism at Boston University.
