October 8-10
Cosmopolitan Music Society 8426 103 St (Gateway Boulevard)
Site of Royal Bison Art and Craft Fair

Since 2002, the Edmonton Anarchist Bookfair has provided Anarchists,
activists, and the simply curious the opportunity to learn, share ideas and
connect with others. Vendors and speakers from across North America
attend each year, with around a thousand attendees passing through
during the event. Previous vendors have included AK Press, PM Press and
thoughtcrimeink. Previous speakers have included Ward Churchill, Andrej
Grubacic and prison abolitionist Viktoria Law. This year’s keynote presentation is
by No One is Illegal, an organization that fights for the rights of refugees,
migrant workers, and others who suffer at the hands of an unfair system
of borders and checkpoints.

The Researchers and Academics of Colour for Equality/Equity (R.A.C.E.)

for First Nations, Inuit, Métis and Non-status Indians and racialized minorities
within the academy, governmental and nongovernmental organizations, and
the broader society. The network and its
national steering committee are
committed to mentoring graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and new
scholars, as well as mid-career scholars working toward professional
advancement. Through community-university alliances, members engage
directly with local communities to promote social equity and social wellbeing.
