Mon, 12 Jun 2017 13:16:08 +0300
"The anarchist books are weapons against modern totalitarianism" ---- Finished the evening
Saturday, May 27 4th Anarchist Book Festival, organized since 2014 by the self In the
Forward to Patras. And only the fourth consecutive organizing an anarchist book festival
in the city center, in which we live and intervene, is in itself a success, especially
when you consider the kinematics ebb conditions in which we live. ---- As we wrote
features and the first festival in 2014: ---- "The festival aims to highlight the wealth
of anarchist, antiauthoritarian and libertarian beliefs, diffusion of anarchist
imperatives in society and especially the youth of the city at a time when state
propaganda against those who resist self-organized and down prevalent, while racism,
social cannibalism and ekfasismos seem to be the only options a society in crisis.
Moreover, at a time and within the resistance movements formed depreciation terms for
political fermentation and deepening, we believe that the promotion of the culture of
self-education, politics and theoretical exploration, conservation of social and class
memory against the culture of lifestyle anarchism and chouligkanopoiisis policy are
particularly important moments in the direction of the broader reorganization of radical
and revolutionary movement. "
Despite the very bad weather conditions (strong storms 1st and 3rd day of the festival) a
lot of people went through the patio Esperion at the weekend. Several publications also
responded to our call for the festival support or their books or even more with the
presence or participating in events with book reviews.
On Thursday, May 25th, the first day of the festival, the events began in the afternoon
with a very interesting presentation of the Bolshevik myth of Alexander Berkman publishing
"Panopticon" by Yannis Ioannidis translator book. Many people interested and attended this
event. Feature that is not for the book so many people interested.
The first day continued with event-debate was the occasion of the publication of the book:
"Israeli Anarchists. Mobilizing the conflict Palestinian-Israeli "from versions OPPORTUNA,
and the book" Anarchists against the Wall "by EDITIONS colleagues, in the presence of the
author, active political activist and member of the collective" Anarchists against the
wall "by Israel, Uri Gordon.
The evening ended with a musical race and possible storm that was falling relentlessly
from the cloudy sky.
Undaunted and undeterred by the weather whims continued aloud the next day, Friday, May 26
with the presentation of the book: "A libertarian project. History, evolution and act
"from versions EKPIPTONTES attitude. The history of the anarchist movement, the need to
establish a realistic revolutionary program and challenges that leave the Spanish
anarchists in custody in the anarchist movement today, through the presentation of the
first volume and placements that followed for the very important work of Santigian.
Pending the adoption of the next two volumes.
Thereafter, the baton was passed versions new daemons, showing the first and second volume
of newly issued their anthology of Spanish Revolution, Spain in Red and Black. An
anthology that joins the ever burgeoning in recent years, Greek literature for the
hypothesis of social revolution in Spain. Pithy presentation, great interest in the world,
many questions and is thus logical that we expect the issue and the next two volumes of
The evening ended with live music rebetiko for the financial support of the festival,
under the threatening dark skies, but that did not make the threat of rain.
That's how we got in Saturday, the last day of the festival. Noon benches with books,
brochures, texts and music cds diy was erected. Shortly before the start of the event
Saturday the Achaikos Ouranos made the threats the previous evening and our filodorise a
storm rivaled in intensity that of the first day.
But the world had already come for the event to mark the 80 years since the events of May
'37 in Barcelona. The comrade and comrade from the CNT Madrid was there an appetite for
the big event, so do not procrastinate and the conversation began. Very interesting
information about the events of the civil war within the civil war, the revolutionary
attitude of the Stalinists in Spain, on the progress of collectivization and productive
reconstruction of Spain but for the moment the CNT in the races. Many questions, answer
key and a nice atmosphere at the end of the event, he still did the lousy weather to calm
Most perfect closing of the festival of the Tango - Waltz Live that followed could not be
found. The musicians are exceptional, the beautiful singer and so somehow we traveled with
argentinoviennezikous rhythms and French verse.
Throughout the festival there alongside the kinematic book exhibition and poster
exhibition policy, photography, music distro self-organized and printed materials of the
anarchist / anti-authoritarian movement.
As a self-managed space In the Forward would like to thank everyone who responded to our
call for participation in the 4th Anarchist Book Fair (publishers, writers, collectives,
comrades who supported us with their presence the three-day event) and those who were
interested, although in the end it was not possible to participate in the festival.
From our side we can say that we will continue to promote the logic of unmediated
communication, self-organized expression, equal participation and horizontality in the
belief that the way we are fighting today has direct relevance to the society we want to
We will continue to put into practice the akidemonefti intervention and action on a range
of issues related to life our own and those around us and the impact on them, the options
and the plans for political and economic bosses ...
