Nov. 14, 2013 — As far as radical political thought in Arizona is concerned, it would appear that Flagstaff is the hub, and on Nov. 16 and 17, radicals from all over the region will converge on the mountainside city for A Fire On The Mountain: Anti-Colonial and Anarchist Bookfair.
This is Flagstaff's second regional conference of radicals in 2013, the last being “Fanaticism and the Abolition-Democracy: Critical Theory in the Spirit of Joel Olson,” however the that one was hosted by Northern Arizona University. This conference will be hosted by The Taala Hooghan Infoshop, 1700 N. Second Street, Flagstaff.
Besides the book fair, there will be discussions, workshops, skill shares, presentations and art all in the spirit of anti-colonialism and anarchism. The event’s most prominent speaker will be anarcho-primitivist author John Zerzan, who is speaking at 10:30 a.m. on Nov. 17.
There will also be lectures and discussion groups hosted by other anarchist authors, past and present local organizers, writers, and musicians, all speaking on topics ranging from past actions, to activist writing, to beat making.
Nov. 16, the first night of the event, there will be a concert featuring Klee Benally, Indigineze, Shining Soul, Requiem, and Let The World Die will end the programing for the day.
According to the organizers the event is meant to, “inform, agitate, and celebrate anti-colonial struggle and anarchist tensions,” by celebrating the art and literature surrounding indigenous and radical culture.
The event is still looking for vendors, speakers, presenters, and volunteers. To get involved, email email@example.com. Childcare will be available at the event. This event is free and all ages, though donations are welcome.
