Saturday

A Space of Remembrance 9PM – Location TBA during the bookfair

Anarchist rituals have always involved the dead. We bring, often without an attempt at overt significance, elements of ritual to the streets in the form offerings like fire, vessels, flags, masks. We write the names of our dead on the streets. We dedicate actions and writings and creations to the dead. We avenge those who have been killed through state violence through our choice of targets in our actions. We create our own memorials for the dead, sometimes in the form of roving street parties, occupations, erecting temporary altars and lighting candles. In many ways, riots are an expression of the need to create space to grieve for those we have lost, or for those who never had the chance to live out their potential– to collectively mourn, avenge and pay tribute. On Saturday around dusk we invite the opportunity to gather in public space (to be announced at the bookfair) and erect a space of remembrance together, in particular we will make space for those who have been killed at the hands of the state and white supremacists. Bring anything to share in making this space– candles, flowers, offerings, readings, paint, etc.
