The Women’s Coordinating Committee For a Free Wallmapu [Toronto] is an indigenous Mapuche grassroots organization based in Toronto, Turtle Island. Our goal is to link the struggles of indigenous sovereignty (specifically the Mapuche Peoples of so-called southern $hile) with that of other indigenous, anti-capitalist/anti-colonial, community based struggles across Turtle Island, by creating awareness through events, protests, publications, etc…. We work to build our communities and solidarity across different struggles in the hope of seeing our Mapuche Territory in liberation.https://wccctoronto.wordpress.com/

clarification: while this facebook event was created by Kersplebedeb, this ‘bookfair’ in fact consists of all of the book vendors who registered to table at the World Social Forum and were placed in the Marie-Gerin Lajoie Auditorium foyer. Kersplebedeb did not (could not) invite, include, or exclude any vendors, as everyone here will be here because they took it upon themselves to register to have a kiosk at the WSF.

précision: cet événement facebook a été crée par Kersplebedeb, pourtant ce ‘salon du livre’ est constitué des éditeurs et libraires qui se sont inscrits au Forum Social Mondial et qui ont eu des kiosques dans le foyer de l’auditorium Marie-Gerin Lajoie. Kersplebedeb n’a pas (et n’a pas été en position de) invité, incliut, or exclut qui que ce soit, tout le monde qui seront là y seront parce qu’ils et elles se sont inscrits pour avoir une kiosque au FSM.
