Join Aragorn!, member of the Little Black Cart publishing collective, for a discussion of anarchism and nihilism.
We would first like to recognize that this event will be taking place on the traditional territory of the Esquimalt and Lekwungen (Songhees) people. As settlers occupying this land it is our responsibility to engage in actions of decolonization within ourselves and within our communities.
Join us for a screening of the documentary "RESIST: The Unist'ot'en's Call to the Land". RESIST explores issues Indigenous activists at the Unist'ot'en camp face as they occupy their traditional territories and block the construction of a multitude of pipelines. This is a call for support and solidarity from the frontlines to all of us here. We will have co-director, Eli Hirtle, introducing the film “RESIST: the Unist’ot’en’s Call to the Land”.
Join the editors of "Drawing the Line: Indian Women Fight Back!," an anthology of feminist comics by women in India, for their book launch!
The editors will discuss how the book came to be and the need for women and girls to create comics about their life experiences in North America. There will be a 15 minute visual presentation followed by Q&A, discussion, and socializing.
“Drawing the Line” will be available for purchase ($20). T-shirts, buttons, and 'zine' style booklets will also be available.
Camas Books & Infoshop is a community run, all volunteer bookstore with new and used books, both fiction and non-fiction, on a variety of subjects. We also carry zines, patches, stickers, and a range of t-shirts and other artisan-produced items. Feel free to come by and hang out in our seating area with your laptop, or play in the kids' space.
