Tijuana Hosts Radical Book Fair


Last weekend indy and diy publishers converged in Tijuana for the first Feria de Publicaciones Independientes (Independent Publishing Fair) hosted at and around Raices Infoshop, off Avenida Revolución opposite the Arch of Tijuana.

The three day festival featured workshops and discussions on feminism, anti-border activism, anarchism, political prisoner solidarity, and film screenings, photo exhibition, bike ride, and live art and music. Zinesters and other indy media publishers from Mexico and southwestern US tabled with a variety of comics, writings, and art.

And vegan donuts. Oh boy were there vegan donuts.

The fair was hosted by Raices Cocina Vegana, a vegan cafe, social center, and radical literature space/infoshop, and Tijuana Comida no Bombas (Food Not Bombs), a collective that gathers and cooks food to give away.
