Indymedia- Why are there pictures posted of people at the anarchist bookfair? These picture postings are further jeopardizing the safety of those people. I'm asking Indybay to take these pictures off their website. In the future, I ask everyone to not bring cameras to the bookfair at all. It is unnecessary and unsafe.

I think these are okay because nearly all the people (except a few people who actually were announced speakers on the panels) are small and in the distance, and it makes the fair look inviting. Besides, the agents easily could have shown up with hidden cameras, or just taken notes.
At one point, I had to ask an acquaintance who the person was who came up and took a photo of us w/o saying who they were. It almost made me wonder if it was that 'zombietime' club. If you do go around photographing people, you probably should develop a raport with them by explaining that you're affiliated with the fair in some way

listen folks, nothing illegal happened at the bookfair. A lot of the people there are not even anarchists. I understand the concept of government repression, but the bookfair is the most mainstream of any anarchist events I've ever seen. Let's not be overly paranoid.

no one needs more photos added to a police profile.
