Anarchist Bookfair 2019

The last anarchist bookfair in Switzerland was a great success, with more people then ever before coming. However, it’s already time to start thinking about the next bookfair!

The bookfair will take place on the weekend of the 31 May-02 June 2019 in the city of Bern, at the Gertrud-Wocker Mensa.

To give you an idea of what to expect, the general theme of this year is Food!, with discussions, presentations (all translated into English, French and German), childcare, film screenings and of course food!

Save the dates!
