Humboldt Grassroots has been hosting the Humboldt Anarchist Book Fair for 9 years now! This year's theme is The Reading Rainbow of Resistance, to reflect the need for solidarity amongst diverse groups, as well as solid education through reading and taking in a variety of perspectives so that we can resist the increasing oppression that is upon us.

Here is our exciting and diverse line-up so far:

The Base: Organizing A Rapid Response Network

We the People: Stories from the Community Rights Movement in the United States (Anneke Campbell / co-author)

Taking Away the Power of Criminal Charges: Combatting State Repression to Strengthen Our Movements (Tilted Scales)

Fighting the Alt-Right and White Nationalism with 21st Century Anti-Fascism (James Anderson)

Why Anarcha-Feminism Is Necessary For Liberating Life (Eureka Assembly Feminist Reading Groups)

Global Grassroots Movements for Sex Education and Reproductive Rights (Corinna Rosella)

Trump vs. the Environment: What's To Be Done? (Jeffrey St. Clair)

From the Front Lines of Forest Defense In So-Called "Humboldt County" (Earth First!)

An Artists's Responsibility to Reflect the Times (Riston Diggs)

Prisoner Correspondence Workshop


If you're interested in volunteering for the Humboldt Anarchist Book Fair, please be on the look-out for our volunteer meetings, which will be posted on our FB page, or private message us here or at humboldtgrassroots at riseup dot net. We are in need of musicians/bands/artists and venues to help with fundraising. We are in need of poster puter-uppers. And for the day of, we need people to join the kitchen crew, the security crew, and the clean-up crew. Thanks in advance!!

We are excited to have this coming book fair at a time when Anarchism is being increasingly put into action on a large scale in many revolutionary movements around the country and around the world. There is so much to be excited about and to take inspiration and ideas from as we come together to face some of the greatest challenges of our times.

We are paying close attention to the actions to end prison slavery. We have been studying autonomous democracy to undermine the material basis of patriarchy, white supremacy, and capitalism. We are living in a time where revolutionary movements are going beyond democracy and creating free societies, where all institutions exist to serve a function for those involved, where participation is voluntary.

Social movements are engaging in compelling experiments to create cop-free spaces and rapid response organizations to fill the emergency response role in their communities. The great struggles against the destruction of the forests, the earth, and the pollution of the water have brought many together as a force to be reckoned with.

There are many ideas and opportunities we can't wait to explore with the community at this coming Humboldt Anarchist Book Fair!
