Following on from the London, Liverpool and Manchester Anarchist Book Fairs a pattern reveals itself: A group applies for a stall or a talk. The organisers refuse, and write to the group giving reasons why they should not attend. Nonetheless, the group turn up. They are asked to leave. They refuse. A dialogue ensues. Eventually they are physically removed. There follows headline news on how free speech was brutally denied. It is questionable whether the groups involved are actually Anarchists. Yet they are swift to claim that Anarchists should conduct themselves in particular ways. Their idea of Anarchism is the hackneyed one of "Anything Goes" or "So what?" In fact, relativism is merely the flip-side of obedience. Neither side requires any consideration of the consequences of one's acts. Yesterday's disruption in Manchester threw a negative shadow over an otherwise comradely gathering. Anarchism's erstwhile openness permits any uninvited group to walk in and use the fair to promote their own agenda. To score a particular point they are happy to see the event destroyed. In future we need to protect ourselves. As was pointed out they are free to put in the work to host their own fair, their own meetings.
