APRIL 9, 2007; NEW YORK, NY: An intense season of work rolls toward another as our first paperback publication’s galley proofs will come off the presses in time to be seen and touched at the first New York City Anarchist Book Fair on Saturday, April 14.

“The People Decide: Oaxaca’s Popular Assembly” by Nancy Davies (2007, Narco News Books) is coming! (100 collector’s limited edition galley proofs will be made available at the book fair for donations of $20 or more to The Fund for Authentic Journalism, on a first-come first-serve basis.)

The People Decide: Oaxaca’s Popular Assembly
The book fair, to be held at the Judson Memorial Church at 55 Washington Square South in Greenwich Village brings together radical booksellers, publishers, authors and readers from throughout the Eastern Seaboard of the United States, and some, like us, from farther away.

The Narco News Team seeks more volunteers to help us staff the table. Sign up for a shift anytime between 10:30 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. to assist booksellers in ordering the work, and help offer the collector’s edition of the book and other gifts for donations to The Fund for Authentic Journalism! If you can take a shift, send me an email at narconews@gmail.com.

Also premiering at the book fair: A new DVD of reports from Mexico by The Other Journalism with the Other Campaign: 2006: The Other Oaxaca, with three Video Newsreels from Zapatista Subcomandante Marcos’ February 2006 visit to that state (English and Spanish versions of each, for a total of six documentaries), which will be made available along with other DVDs and books by collaborators of Narco News and the School of Authentic Journalism.

At 4 p.m. until 5:15 on Saturday, at that same Judson Memorial Church, the book fair is hosting a forum about Insurgent Mexico:

While others talk, the poor and indigenous people of Mexico have been acting to take control of their future. The Zapatista movement established a new pattern of antiauthoritarian, nonhierarchical organizing that has inspired organizers around the world. Last year, the people of Oaxaca moved to oust their corrupt governor and establish a new form of horizontal self-government. Despite severe government oppression, communities across the country are launching similar efforts. Meanwhile, the Zapatistas’ Other Campaign has galvanized a wide-ranging, community-based discussion about the future of the people of Mexico. Insurgent Mexico brings together two American journalists who have provided some of the most consistent, on-the-ground coverage of Mexico’s social movements to discuss the struggle in Oaxaca and the Other Campaign.

The two journalists will be John Ross and I. Eric Laursen will moderate. (Any volunteers kind enough to staff our table in the book fair hall while this panel is taking place will receive a free copy of the presentation on video.)

On Wednesday, April 18 please join us for the Narco News 7th Anniversary Celebration on Manhattan’s Lower East Side (if you sponsor the event before tomorrow night with a donation of $100 or more we’ll list you on the printed invitations and online: you can do that at this link).
