Today myself and five other activists from Cambridge Indymedia
attended the anarchist bookfair (see for further details) in Norwich.
http://twotins.tripod.com/onesolutionanarchistrevolution/id21.html
My rough estimate of the number of people that atended would
be between 150 and 200. Downstairs there were stalls
representing groups such as Norwich Anarchists, SchNEWS,
Radical routes, the ISM, the Wombles and many more. Books
sold were about subjects ranging from politcal theory to
eco-anarchism to biographies of cultural figures. People bought
books, took leaflets, chatted, and ate excellent vegan burgers and
sausage rolls. Outside the building Theatre of War performed,
and a supervised childrens area was set up to free parents to think
about how to end capitalism for a while.

Upstairs was where Cambridge Indymedia's stall was set up. We
screened several films including the amazing "Crowd Bites
Wolf," "Another other way is possible in Venezuela," and also
"Hardcore Riot Porno". We met several other activists who were
interested in media. Outside workshops, speeches and meetings,
held by such groups as the Wombles and Dissent went on
throughout the day. A bar was also set up and people listened to
live music and drank beer. I watched an excellent band called
"High and Mighty" play (according to the programme they are
Norwich's premier ska band - I have no idea what this means but
I think it is good!). Many people came upstairs to listen to them,
and towards the end quite a few were dancing!

Overall a very good day: a relaxed atmosphere, and a great
opportunity to meet activists from Norwich and the surrounding
areas.
