    statements of principles, accessibilty policy, commitments

    As anachists these guys are losers, in fact leftist losers calling themselves what they
    are not

    These guys are anachists, they take what they want and what they don’t take is
    a bunch of rules from a bunch of weakling tweeds.

    How do anarchists hold a book fair with “booksellers”, which strongly suggests money is involved? Isn’t capitalist commerce frowned upon by the Circle A people?

    • Frau Katze

      Good question.

    These parasites would be the first to die if they ever got their dream of a breakdown in law and order.

    Apparently Liz May is going to be serving drinks at the event.

  • Surele Surele

    they should be giving their wares for free, no?

    • Petey

      Just walk up to the table of books and take what you want. It’d be interesting to see the reaction, just for kicks.

      • Surele Surele

        That’s exactly what I meant. Yours is mine, but do not touch mine. I wonder, just as aside, how much do they contribute to, let’s just say… charity? I suspect it’s a big, fat zero.

    Festival of Anarchy all through May? I’ll have to check this out.
