ACAB 2023 Statement of Intention - We are facilitating this book fair within a dominant culture of white supremacist hetero-patriarchy built on numerous interconnected systems of oppression. We know that power often replicates itself in radical and subcultural spaces, even when participants are committed to liberation. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that the open, public event we’ve organized will be a safe space, but we ask participants to commit to a shared vision of solidarity and collective care.
We have zero tolerance for racism, misogyny, queer/transphobia, and ableism. As anarchists, we support autonomous action to raise consciousness and co-create a better world; therefore, we invite all participants to initiate conversations and directly address oppressive behaviors that occur during the book fair. While organizers will not act as police or arbiters of external conflicts, we reserve the right to ask anyone to leave if their actions are harmful to the book fair or other participants. If you experience harassment, abuse, assault, or other violence during the event and want support from organizers, please let us know.
We want this event to be accessible to anyone who is genuinely interested, and some attendees will be new to anarchism, lacking the language and experience to gracefully navigate politically charged conversations. When possible, we believe that an open-minded and welcoming approach to such encounters serves to strengthen and grow our movement.
