Another Carolina Anarchist Book Fair intends to make this event a supportive, nonthreatening, and safe environment.  If you experience harassment, abuse, assault, or any other kind of violation during the book fair, or if someone who has engaged in such behavior is adversely affecting your participation at the book fair, or if you need support for any other reason, please come to a bookfair collective member, some of whom you will meet at the welcome table.


We want this event to be accessible to all parties who are genuinely interested in the event and we want to welcome engaged participation from such folks. Since there have been a few individuals who have been un-welcomed from the fair, measures have been taken to safeguard the locations of events to undercut the possibility of unwanted participation (both on the part of far right trolls and that of the aforementioned problematic people). One of these measures consists of only releasing the locations of events in this welcome packet, and we would ask you not to share this information with anyone you do not know or trust in order to help keep this as safe a space as possible.


While the organizing crew finds it somewhat unlikely that these characters will show their faces – having been communicated with beforehand regarding their standing with the Asheville Anarchist Bookfair – steps have been taken to arrange presences at all the events to bottom-line the removal of individuals, foregrounding de-escalation tactics.


If you have any questions about this agreement, please feel free to approach anyone at the welcome table and we will do our best to answer any questions!


Let’s get each other’s backs and help make this event as enjoyable as we can for all our comrades!


Love and solidarity,
