Weekend of Anarchy: Cabaret & Bookfair

Posted by Dave / May 17, 2007

AnarchistPhoto.jpg Forget the smell of popcorn and cotton candy. Forget about your seat on a whirling waltzer. This is no regular fair, this is the Montreal Anarchist Book-fair.Yes, it's that time of year again. It's time to stand up and fight for our rights, or at the very least, read a book about them.

This weekend, head down to CEDA at 2515 rue Delisle (Metro Lionel Groulx) for the 8th Annual Anarchist Bookfair/Salon du Livre Anarchiste. Saturday will include the bookfair proper, films, vendors, art, kids activities and more. Sunday will offer a day of anarchist workshops and presentations. Check out their website for a full rundown of films, workshops and presentations.

Not into reading? Well, worry not. The Weekend of Anarchy kicks off on Friday night with the Anarchist Cabaret being held at Main Hall (5390 St. Laurent Blvd.) at 8pm. The cabaret will feature an array of performances and speakers including Please Don't Put Charles on the Money, Sarah Mangle, Paula Belini, Marni & Melissa, On Bodies, Amal El Masri, Benoit Tremblay and Anartchy Marchy. The cabaret has a suggested donation of $5-7. This will be a great event for anyone new to the anarchist community or interested in seeing what it's all about. At the very least, you need to show up just to see the anarchist marching band!

So, here's your plan of attack this weekend: Head over to Main Hall on Friday night. Have fun. Wake up on Saturday morning hungover. Take the metro to St. Henri, have a greasy breakfast. Then walk to CEDA for the bookfair. Easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy.
