The Radical Independent Book Fair Project - As part of the No Borders Gathering

Within Britain, Scotland and specifically Glasgow there are fewer and fewer outlets for independent and radical materials. Corporate bookshops rule the roost and offer little in the way of counter culture, radical voices or local independent materials. The Radical Independent Book fair project (RIB) has come about to help redress this imbalance...

RIB is a collection of individuals and groups who produce publications, information and materials for sale, view and free distribution. The project is self-financed by the participants, no public or corporate monies are involved, no one takes a wage, it is not party politically aligned and is autonomous from other organisations. The project is not just an occasional bookshop and travelling bookstall... It is also a temporary library, a videotheque, a meeting point for distribution, discussion and ideas, as well as a place to come and have a blether.
