Working Class Bookfair, UK: Newcastle Upon Tyne, 5 Nov 2011

Celebrations! The Bookfair is 10!!

REMEMBER REMEMBER the 5th of November when you're after good political discussion, books and when we're organising to bring down the TORY government.

The Liberals are collapsing cos they're career oportunists, its class against class now and you have to take sides.

Our side are the poor, workers, unemployed, the NEETS, disabled, the pensioners and those trying to get a decent pension, migrants and the otherwise oppressed such as the trainee workers - THE STUDENTS. We want to spread great literature that is useful for our people.

Words are not enough though and we have to put ideas into practice on a large scale.

Come and plan for the day out in London when the massed ranks of education workers, students and the otherwise pissed off at the CONDEM government will be making their voices heard for once on the large STUDENT protest on November 9th.

The Tory conference in early October is also seeing a callout to protest and we support all efforts to remove or blockade the hypocritical Torys. Hopefully we will be hearing from those who went to the Manchester Tory conference about what a great time they had.

Books, mags and pamphlets will cover; local and general history, Marxism, environment, football and other sport, culture, railways, mining, fiction, social science, co-operatives, economics, anarchism, international relations, socialism, trade unions, sex, drugs & rock n' roll... smile

This is an open invite to all fellow travellers to come on down to the November 5th bookfair and have a great time.

Tyne & Wear Left Unity, Sunderland Welfare Action group, the Industrial Workers of the World, SPGB, Class War, NUM, unofficial sparks (who are teaching anarchists and Marxists about spontaneity), Mayday books, North East Anarchists, the Black Bloc (if we can find them), UKUNCUT, students, teachers and lecturers, and many more are invited to;

The BOOKFAIR
Saturday November 5th 11.30 - 4.30pm
The Bridge Hotel, Castlegarth, Newcastle, NE1 1RQ.

Followed by evening meal, drinks, and pub crawl...
