Clarification and Apology concerning our exclusions policy

CLARIFICATION AND APOLOGY concerning our exclusions policy

The Montreal Anarchist Bookfair Collective 2015 would like to issue an apology concerning the statement about our Safe(r) Spaces policy that we made on May 30, 2015.

This is due to our reduced capacity as a collective, as well as personal issues for members of the collective. Continue reading
