Don't go to BU for the annual Boston Anarchist Bookfair tomorrow - it's been moved to the Democracy Center, 45 Mt. Auburn St. in Cambridge, between noon and 5 p.m. In a statement organizers explained the sudden move:
Boston University told the collective yesterday (Nov 7th) we would have to pay a (unknown) thousands of dollars to use the space and pay for several BU cops to be on site. The space has been booked since July 2019. No other year was this required. We tried to talk them down, but they did not relent. We do not have the funds and could not on good conscience raise money that would be given directly to cops.
We will accommodate as many booksellers and tablers as possible in the new space. All workshops are, unfortunately, cancelled.
