Irish Centre, Newcastle. The Guy Fawkes Working Class and Anarchist Bookfair
5 November 2022 @ 12:00 - 17:00
From Trevor Bark
A broad range of literature, books and ephemera, and will be on display. As well as a bar there will be an open and tolerant atmosphere, where discussion is encouraged.
This bookfair is organised at a time of economic crisis and political crisis. What passes for democracy is in desperate need of serious change. The Politicians lie for the billionaire oligarchs and the media spread it in because it’s in their interests, not ours. Their plan is to divide and rule a disintegrating society which they pretend can be healed with sticking plaster solutions.
It’s time to think our way beyond these limitations and do something about it.
The developing economic crisis, unemployment, energy prices, inflation, the next protests and lots more can be discussed.
Books, mags and pamphlets will cover at least; local and general history, Marxism, labour history, environment, football and other sport, culture, railways, mining, fiction, social science, co-operatives, economics, Anarchism, international relations, socialism, trade unions, sex, drugs & rock n’ roll… 🙂
This is an open invite to all fellow travellers and troublemakers to come on down to the November 5th bookfair and have a great time.
We would especially welcome comrades who travel across the North, such as friends in York, Leeds, Carlisle, Dumfries, Berwick, Middlesborough and lots more.
