    I Imagine there will be a lot more of this kind of stuff coming from the black hole that is twitter

    I have noticed that there are fb posts entitled 'addressing concerns' too.

    That statement is rather arrogant. Demands all the resources from the previous organisers. Ho ho ho.

    As for no politics that involves oppressing others, well fuck me that's revolution off the agenda then.

    So some who have been attacking the original collective are involved in wanting to put on a new book fair? Like a good old corporate takeover.

    Good to see that one of the 2 pictures the new Bookfair organisers have posted on Twitter is a teddy bear in an anarchist t-shirt. Someone will be needing that to throw out of their pram shortly...

    Depends. It's fully covered in the safer spaces policy though.

    If the person doing the dissing scores more oppressed points than the person they're dissing then it's OK. If a number of people are involved in the disagreement then a points average will be taken of the people involved on each side, and then if the final result gets approved by the Bookfair safer spaces committee it's OK.

    "Any politic which would seek to oppress, undermine or remove the rights and liberties of others" - this is the point of anarchism, It's exactly to oppress, undermine or remove the rights and liberties of others in order to re-instate them at a higher universal level. Pathetic liberals.

    The statement seems to fit Hare Krishna types more than anarchists.

    No, no, and no. You nasty, nasty person. Get with the program grandad. Anarchism is about cycling, punk music, poetry zines, being lovely to everyone (especially slightly weird people), and not liking big corporations.

    Well it should be interesting to attend anyway. If it happens. Which I have doubts about.

    chilango Neither Westminster nor Brussels....

    Divorce letter? Yeah, might be a bit late for that in my case. I've been having affairs with Marxist scenes for a while now :(

    I was going to mention all the types blocked by the main movers yesterday - they can't let half the people attend because they are the same as fascists. To let them attend is to support fascism.

    Ironic that the reduced turnout might leave them open to attack from actual fascists.

    The previous organisers said they were happy to hand over to another group IIRC.

    Sometimes I wonder if even you know what you're mad about. It's a mystery to us over here in the English-speaking world anyway.

    Class struggle by any means necessary has always been my mantra.

    Organising with Anarchists rather than Marxists was the logical choice for me since the 80's. More likely to go with my tactics. Not often the case now days. Lots of anarchists have bottled it these days (inc me). We are being replaced. Our anarchism is being replaced. By liberal fucking melts.
