The 2008 Dublin anarchist bookfair

The 2008 Dublin anarchist bookfair will take place Sat 15th March at Club

Running concurrently throughout the day will be a range of discussions and
talks covering many major issues which are of concern to us.

The Health Service in Ireland is tackled and we have a health professional
give their opinion on the war being waged in there.

War, where next and how can it be stopped.

Climate Change - can this be dealt with in our free market world.

Palestine - what can be done by people here.

Social centres, how can they be developed and what are the practical very
real obstacles that need to be overcome.

Feminism and Class

Trade Unions

An introduction to Anarchism

And the struggle for true choice in 21st Century Ireland, are also
scheduled talks due to take place.

Also we have a guest speaker from Manchester talking about the very real
life experience how communities can organise to resist police brutality - a
pertinent issue in Dublin as Larry Wheelock will relate.

The timetable below is not finalized and will be subject to change as we
confirm more speakers for the talks.

The evening itself will end with a social occasion in the city, where
music, food, and I'm sure discussion will rage into the night. Please come
along and make this bookfair as successful as its predecessors. You never know
this Saturday in March might just change your life!
