> The Bookfair Needs You!
Volunteer with the 4th Annual Anarchist Bookfair ...
In less than three weeks, Montreal will host to the 4th Annual Anarchist
Bookfair on May 17, the largest bookfair in North America next to the
long-running San Francisco Bookfair. There will also be an entire day of
workshops, panels and presentations entitled "Demand the Impossible" on
May 18.
The Montreal Bookfair is a totally volunteer-effort, and is organized by a
small collective of local organizers and activists. For the bookfair to be
a success, we rely on your support and mutual aid.

Proceeds from this year's bookfair, after costs, will be divided between
four projects: the Montreal Political Prisoner Calendar collective; the
Anarchist People of Colour Conference (October 2003 in Detroit), La Page
Noire (anarchist infoshop in Quebec City); and La Biblioteca Social
Reconstruir (anarchist library in Mexico City).

Please consider volunteering at this year's bookfair. We need your help in
various ways:

POSTERING ---> We are aiming to have posters up all over Montreal, but
need your help. If you can help with postering in the upcoming days,

PROMOTION ---> We are also flyering at other events between now and May
17&18. If you can help with flyering, let us know.

DECORATIONS ---> The bookfair is moving to a new space this year, and we
are hoping to decorate the space with banners, posters and other visual
imagery. If you want to help, get in touch.

TRANSLATION ---> All bookfair workshops will offer translation into
English, French and Spanish. We require several persons proficient in at
least two of these languages to help us out.

HOUSING ---> We are receiving requests from out-of-town folks for cheap
local housing. If you can offer a space, let us know!

CHILDCARE ---> We are offering free childcare at the bookfair, coordinated
by experienced childcare people, but they need volunteer help. Let us know
if you can lend a hand at our Pre-Skool Free Skool.

TRANSPORTATION ---> In the days before the bookfair, we might require help
transporting various items, as well as picking up out-of-town bookfair
participants. Let us know if you can help with your vehicle.

BOOKFAIR DAY ---> At past bookfairs, more than 1000 people have attended
during the day, and at least a few hundred can be expected for the day of
workshops. We require lots of people to help set up for the bookfair, and
also to help staff the information tables during the day. We will begin
set-up at 8am on Saturday, May 17 at 2515 Delisle (near metro
Lionel-Groulx). We will also need some help on Sunday, May 18 at 1710
Beaudry (metro Beaudry) starting at 10:30am. Get in touch if you can lend
a hand during the bookfair day, or the day of workshops.

---> If you can help volunteer, in whatever way, please get in touch ASAP
at bookfair2003@ziplip.com or phone 514-844-3207 and leave a message.

In solidarity,
The Montreal Anarchist Bookfair Collective
