  1. “We will also have a stall outside the Manchester Anarchist Bookfair . . . “

    Does this mean that they’ve knocked you backed from having a stall inside the bookfair?


  2. Yes indeed. Rather a pity, since the Bristol bookfair organisers would let us have one. Obviously it’s their event and they only want anarchist groups, but I think dialogue and debate is always useful and we don’t want to look like we’re standing outside leeching off it but refusing to go in!

    We are planning to hold a meeting on Latin America in Manchester that evening, however, which people might come to after the bookfair. More details shortly…
