"As climate disaster escalates and warming continues I think that, for me as an anarchist, an exciting opportunity that comes out of that globally difficult situation is an opportunity to build habitual infrastructure that is not reliant on the state, and I think that we can only really do that in community with each other. To be able to build those bridges and networks, to strengthen the ones that already exist, and to build new ones."
For the first installment of our Community Sustainers Drive, members of our co-op sat down with organizers of the third annual Another Carolina Anarchist Bookfair happening this weekend, August 23 - 25, in Asheville, North Carolina. In our conversation we cover the origin of the book fair, the responsibility of organizers in curating a safe(r) space of encounter, the importance of gatherings like this for anarchists and anti-authoritarians in southern Appalachia, and what newcomers might expect of their experience. We think you'll enjoy and we hope to see you at the book fair!
