14th NYC Virtual Anarchist Book Fair

The NYC Anarchist Book Fair will be held virtually this year, with a few limited outdoor events. Our website will host presses, live digital conversations and workshops, prerecorded talks and roundtables, a film festival, and archival materials from previous events.

Parallel Worlds: Creating Autonomous Communities

When we construct parallel worlds (worlds guided by logics other than consumerism, accumulation, and hierarchy) we lay the groundwork for a viable anti-capitalist life, one free from police and prisons, hunger, propriety, money, and the systemic violence levelled against the physical, psychological, spiritual and communal health of all beings.

Covid-19, despite the personal and social tragedy it continues to unleash, has nonetheless opened up a potential (as well as an urgent need) to live differently. It has revealed the profound inadequacy of capitalist-white-supremacist-heteropatriarchy and has sent the governing structures into a once-in-a-generation spiral of crises. Facing a global health crisis, climate catastrophe, economic impoverishment, and relentless state violence, the Black Lives Matter movement and the formation of autonomous zones it sparked have stepped up to demand and begin to create new ways of living together outside of the oppressive systems inherited from racist, sexist, and classist colonial frameworks. We stand with them in struggle. The revolution is now—we are building the worlds we want to live in.

We invite our comrades, fellow-travelers, allies, and friends to participate in the formation of self-governing alternative systems.
We are particularly interested in hosting workshops, conversations, artworks, and films around: communal care networks, decolonized futures, black liberation, anti-dharma-capitalist medicine and healing, food autonomy, zero-money economies, resistance organizing and anti-capitalist media.
