We have a full schedule of meetings planned and a varied range of book stalls from a host of anarchist and radical publishers and organisations.

The Bookfair will also host a showing of “Bernadette: Notes on a Political Journey” with a Q&A session with director Leila Doolan and “The Viking Way”, a documentary about how Iceland responded to the crisis.

'The Referendum Debate' will voting no make any difference?

Many on the left see a vote against the 'Austerity treaty' as a contribution to building resistance against the austerity agenda. But does participating in the referendum campaign just sow illusions in a democratic sham, and is the referendum in reality a no-win situation for those who want to build resistance to austerity and who have a vision for a socialist world?

This session of the 2012 Dublin Anarchist Bookfair looks at the value of paper and ink when the net is usually declared the real frontier. We're asking our panel to track some of the connections between todays underground radical press, and what went before. Do these organs represent something of a collective organiser, agitator and voice for our movements or are we simply shouting slogans at the bewildered to keep ourselves busy? Where are the similarities in our projects and where are the fundamental differences? How do we judge our successes and more importantly what blinds us to our failures? Should we be building consciousness, communities or organisations?

The session will be hosted by Ciaran Moore of Dublin Community Televison.The panel will feature banter from people involved in Look Left, Rag, rabble, Liberty Paper and Workers Solidarity.

Eyewitness Afghanistan
