Cancelled: Saturday, 9 May
Newcastle 'Ewan Brown' Anarchist Bookfare
Apologies for delay...
Sorry to announce that, predictably, due to health risks from Covid-19 the Newcastle Ewan Brown Anarchist Bookfair is postponed and won't be going ahead on May 9th. Given the risks no-one wants the event to contribute to anyone becoming unwell. This seems to be a pattern of cooperative groups and communities responding better by shutting events down and taking the decisions away from the government.
We hope to hold the bookfair in the Autumn but of course can give no clear date. We are planning a small programme of online discussion groups/ events around the time of the bookfair. Watch this space for details.
The NHS has seen privatisation and austerity cuts decrease it's ability for an effective response here. Huge sums have been paid to private hospitals and business property owners who might be affected, its clear there is money and support available for certain people. Airlines getting millions in bail-outs while they continue to dodge paying taxes. The usual needs are again being privileged.
So at this time, we can also focus our energy on supporting people most affected by this. Here are some links, but if you have any questions or concerns you can contact us. We apologise for any inconvenience and look forward to meeting you on the other side. We will be more ready and raging than ever.
