We invite all who share, live or want to know more anarchist ideas and practices to build the 8ª Feira do Livro Anarquista de Porto Alegre, to be held on October 28th and 29th. 2017

Participates! Bring your banking, publications and ideas, organize a debate or talk, a video projection, a workshop or other activity!
Anarchist Book Fairs occur around the world and are traditional meeting places, fraternization, reflection, debate and organization. They bring together people of diverse tendencies who seek anarchy and new ways of living and relating, free of oppression and hierarchies. The Anarchist Book Fair of Porto Alegre, along with that of São Paulo, are the oldest in the territories occupied by the Brazilian State and have taken place since 2010. This is a movement that has expanded throughout the continent, from Santiago To Salvador, Bahia, from Montevideo to Curitiba, from Medellin to Belo Horizonte.
This society that values the relentless pursuit of money and power is killing us. By literally and directly killing the marginalized population, with the genocides of black people and indigenous people by the police and the militias. Killing our hearts and dreams with isolation and depression caused by a way of life that brings us no realization as human beings.
It is not only killing us, but everything that is alive and the planet itself. We must stop the engines of domination and destruction of the Earth, coordinated by governments and power-hungry corporations. They want us to believe that that is the only and best way of life possible, ending any dream or perspective of a better life.
The Anarchist Book Fair is a breach opened at the heart of the system, shouting anarchy, giving encouragement to the values of mutual support, autonomy and solidarity. It is a space to expand these ideas and ideals, through meetings or publications, to find new strategies and tactics of confrontation, building real possibilities of transformation of the world in which we live. Anarchy exists only in practice. This practice unites us to the comrades that the State has kidnapped and kept in their captivity and also unites us to those who fell for daring to challenge the power.
To believe in anarchy is to believe in our ability to transform reality.
