Anarchist Bookfair in Zagreb


March 18th to 20th, 2005

The First Anarchist Bookfair in Zagreb will take place on March 18th to 20th, 2005.

This bookfair has been organised as part of a series of Balkan Anarchist Bookfairs, established by anarchist movements in the region. The idea of Balkan Anarchist Bookfairs is to create "travelling events," so the first took place in Ljubljana, Slovenia, in March 2003, the second will be in Zagreb, and others will follow.

Anarchist Bookfair in Zagreb (ASK - Anarhisticki sajam knjiga) aims to become a long-term, developing project. We hope to bring in more and more people every year as participants, publishers, groups, projects - whoever is interested in what the bookfair has to offer.

ASK will take place in Zagreb every spring, as a local resource for anarchist and libertarian books and other publications. We also aim to open discussion on subjects that are important for the anarchist movement, or for our local community.

The idea for such a bookfair is not new, but is based on the positive experience of other Anarchist Bookfairs. In many different situations, these bookfairs have proven to be important events and meeting places on both local and international levels.

This is why we need your help - come and support this event with solidarity and participation!


To help us organize the Bookfair and finish the program on time, we need you to confirm your participation soon as possible. Our e-mail address is: ask-zagreb@net.hr.
