Reminder: Montréal Anachist Bookfair!
In addition to “Todos Somos Japon and Planetary Anarchism” (from 3pm-4:45pm, Sunday, May 22 CEDA — Room 305), there will be lots of other workshops and presentations. Though it conflicts with “Todos Somos Japon,” one of the most important and sure-to-be entertaining events will be “Parole Sans Parole” by the termite collective (same time, but in the Georges-Vanier Cultural Center across from CEDA in Room A). Parole Sans Parole will involve “a number of multi media skits that revolve around issues of 1) prep for parole, 2) the parole hearing, 3) the rules of living in a halfway house post parole, and 4)parole revocation testimonials followed by a group discussion.” Sounds good, right? Here’s more from the description you can read on the Bookfair Schedule: “We will attempt to demonstrate through theatre the enormous surveillance and heavy conditions that parolees are subjected to. We basically want people to get a sense of how difficult it is to get parole and to stay out of prison once you are on parole. All the stories are true- just the names and faces have been changed.”
The works of Dylan Rodríguez (interviewed earlier this year when Project east 306 was still an experimental radio class) can help us make some great links between what the termite collective is doing and what Todos Somos Japon is doing. It’s a darned shame we can’t be able to be there for one another’s presentations, huh?
