Dorset Radical Bookfair
Saturday 4th August @ 11:00 - 18:00
Stalls from individuals, non-hierarchical groups and campaigns, grassroots unions, independent and non-commercial booksellers, artists, publishers and distributors. Priority given to those active in class struggle, antifascism, anti-oppression, environmentalism and mutual aid.
Talks, discussions, presentations, workshops and films. Vegan food, snacks and drinks throughout the day. There will be a kids’ area – supervised play not crèche, guardians to remain in sight of their charges. Gender-neutral toilets, disabled and baby changing. The fire assembly point is at the front of the building.
Live music and Reggae D.J. at the Riviera Bar in Boscombe until 2 a.m. £5 suggested donation to Bookfair and to cover artists’ expenses. 560 Christchurch Rd Boscombe BH1 4BH – at the top end of the pedestrian bit, it’s about 15 minutes walk from the Beaufort Centre.
We ask participants to endorse our statement of common principles
We want everyone attending this event to feel safe, comfortable and included. We reject hierarchy and coercion, we do not use or tolerate oppressive language: ableism, homophobia, racism, transphobia, sexism, snobbery or otherwise. We do not make excuses for sexual abuse or authoritarian regimes. We respect each other’s boundaries. We may ask people to modify their behaviour or take it elsewhere.
