Glasgow Autonomous Book Fair

Short url:

GAS will be hosting a Book Fair on Saturday 2nd March 2019. We have now run out of space and time for additional stalls, discussions/talks and workshops (2nd February 2019).

The idea is for the book fair is to reflect the ethos of GAS, fighting capitalism and other forms of oppression, non-hierarchical organising, and the diversity of the people and organisations who use GAS, but also about things unique to Glasgow.

So far we have stalls from AK Press, Books By Broads, PM Press and the Spirit Of Revolt Archive. We are planning workshops from Herbal Unity (navigating the N.H.S. for people caught up in the immigration system), a printing workshop, and badge making. We are hoping to have a workshop based on the book, 'Advertising Shits In Your Head'.

We want to get away from some of the habitual things you get at anarchist/radical type book fairs that have made them not very diverse in the past. Given recent events at these book fairs we want to stress here at GAS that we don't support transphobia and are explicitly in support of reform to the gender recognition act and of people's right to self identify their gender.

​​​Glasgow Autonomous Space (GAS) is an autonomous social centre that provides space for groups working to fight capitalism and other forms of oppression. GAS was established in 2016 when we took on the lease of a large warehouse building in Tradeston, Glasgow. It was a daunting prospect!
