The sixth annual Helsinki Anarchist Book Fair will take place at the Peace Station (Veturitori 3) in East Pasila, Helsinki. For the first time the fair is extended to two days, the 24th and 25th October.
Helsinki Anarchist Book Fair has become one of the most awaited anti-authoritarian events in Finland. It offers radical viewpoints to the hottest political topics as well as to topics that risk being marginalized otherwise. The discussions, workshops and distributed literature cover themes such as anarchism, anti-militarism, animal rights, queer topics, feminism, anti-fascism, environmental issues and DIY-culture. Books, discussions, distros, cultural program and visitors together form an interesting combination that packs the Peace Station full of people year after year.
Helsinki Anarchist Book Fair intends to be safe and comfortable for everyone – discrimination on the basis of gender, sexuality, ethnicity, ability or on any other grounds will not be tolerated at the event.
The fair is organized by the infoshop Mustan kanin kolo, the Union of Conscientious Objectors and some individual activists. Based entirely on voluntary work, admission to the bookfair is free of charge. Instead of making profit, the purpose of the fair is to offer a space for grassroots organisers and culture.
