Barry Woodling on Liverpool Anarchist Bookfair

'I attended the LIverpool  Anarchist book fair and on entering the building my path was blocked by one of the organisers who informed me that I was banned.  The matter was resolved when another organiser quickly appeared on the scene and said I wasn't on the blacklist.  These shenanigans reminiscent of what has happened over the years at the Manchester Anarchist Book fair are destroying whatever credibility the British anarchist movement had left.   Proscriptions, bans and expulsions under the guise of "safer spaces" are a travesty of any democratic norms and natural justice.   They must be resolutely challenged!'
