NotesCollected at the 2012 Boston Anarchist Bookfair. "The Boston Anarchist Bookfair hopes to bring together people struggling to destroy capitalism, imperialism, patriarchy, heterosexism, racism, colonialism, statism and all other forms of oppression. The Boston Anarchist Bookfair explores the ideas of a system that avoids the use of coercion, violence, force and authority, while still producing a productive and desirable society. The Boston Anarchist Bookfair advocates stateless societies based on non-hierarchical voluntary associations." -- Boston Anarchist Bookfair website:
