Benefit Gig for Bournemouth’s Homeless 9th December 2017

We intend to raise money to provide direct practical help to homeless people in Bournemouth this winter. Clothing, rucksacks, sleeping bags, female sanitation, such essentials as they may request

No charities, no mailshots, no directors with six figure salaries, comfy chairs, lunch accounts or company cars.

Four great local punk bands and reggae D.J. are doing what they do for free. Entry by donation.

And This time its Personal: Psychocompulsion & Workfare by WellRedFilms.

“At the very moment when the government is reducing the ability of NHS mental health practitioners to serve those who are unwell, they are investing public money in dubious mental health programs. Unemployed people will be coerced by sanctions into compliance. The government is trying to convince us that unemployment is a mental illness rather than a result of adverse economic conditions created by capital. WellRedFilms explores the underpinnings of the psycho-coercive practices endorsed by the government with leading researchers and the Mental Health Resistance Network.”
