Getting our anarchism on

The weekend before last Cinema Politica tabled at the Montreal Anarchist Bookfair -- a tradition going back several years -- and as usual it was a provocative, informative and very political weekend. The fair is an annual event which takes place over the course of one weekend in May at the Georges Vanier Cultural Center and the CEDA (Comité d'education aux adultes de la Petite-Bourgogne et Saint-Henri).

One of the largest of its kind, this radical fest brings together political and anarchist groups from across North America for a weekend of conferences, screenings, workshops, art exhibitions, and peddling of awesome anarcho-friendly wares.

Volunteers from the CP Network and CP Concordia remained on-hand all weekend long to spread the word about our activities, to give out promo materials (encouraging our visitors to plaster the city with our new CP stickers!), and to develop greater solidarity between like-minded groups and organizations. Volunteers took advantage of the opportunity to wander and explore the fest, collecting zines, books, posters, and other goodies along the way!

To top off CP's involvement in the fair, Cinema Politica co-founder and director of programming Ezra Winton exhibited (as part of the Art and Anarchy exhibition) a collage of video-stills highlighting the connections between pop culture, representations of race, and ideological contructions of war.
