The Seattle Anarchist Book Fair is an opportunity for old friends to come together, new connections be made, and for those new to anarchy to have an opportunity to engage with the many and varied perspectives of what has been called the Beautiful Idea.
While anarchists are often portrayed through our direct confrontations with the state and capitalism, a book fair allows a space where people have more of an opportunity to converse, exchange ideas and, hopefully, learn from each other.
Here we can find commonalities and intersecting goals, as well as further flesh out those places where our individual projects and desires diverge.

In our thoroughly alienated and anxious time it is not a wonder that some anarchists find themselves alone on May Day in Seattle. Sometimes this is by choice. The call for “everybody” to come out can be heard as shrill and annoying to those who would rather not. I however found myself alone by chance.

On Saturday, February 10th, multiple groups of fascists and far-right conservatives converged in Seattle, WA (occupied Duwamish territory) at Red Square in the center of UW’s campus. A call for anarchists and anti-fascists to oppose this gathering was posted nearly a week prior. The occasion for such a gathering was a “Freedom Rally” that the UW College Republicans had invited Joey Gibson and his group Patriot Prayer from Vancouver, WA to attend. The fascist creep that has been edging its way into the patriot movement for the last several years in the pacific northwest has been well documented by Rose City Antifa, among others. With this in mind, anarchists and anti-fascists took it upon themselves to organize last-minute efforts to sabotage this gathering of fascists and their more center-leaning accomplices. Sure enough, a handful of different fascist and fascist-leaning right-wing groups converged together on campus; The Cascade Legion, Proud Boys, Patriot Prayer, UW College Republicans and various groups of militia-wannabes who patrolled the perimeter of Red Square in their olive-green army fatigues.

Construction noises ring out all through the night around Amazon HQ1 in Seattle. Lonely janitors scrub and mop the surfaces of the Amazon Spheres, locally known as the Bezos Ballz. While they are paid 15-20 dollars an hours, well-paid Amazon executives cruise out of their parking garages in Teslas, Porches, and Lamborghinis. Their 100K a year underlings file through the glass doors and wait for the shuttle back to their luxury apartment. In an unseen jungle camp far away from HQ1, a homeless person dies every two days. In January 2018 alone, 16 people have lost their lives on the streets of Seattle. Jeff Bezos is still the richest man on earth.

A Call for a Decentralized, Anti-Capitalist May Day from Seattle, USA. For the past few years, May Day in Seattle has slowly been shifting away from the centralized, “Anti-Capitalist March” model and this is a public call to further commit to a coordinated yet decentralized and direct action-based mode of operation.
