Bristol antifascists film night 15th June

Bristol Antifascists are showing the excellent film “Bash the fash”, by U.S. anarchist DIY media collective, “Trouble”. Thursday 15th June, Kebele social centre, 14 Robertson Road, Easton, Bristol. BS5 6JY.

“Reactionary right-wing politics are on the rise in the west, and events are moving at a dangerous pace. In the wake of Trump’s ascendency to the US presidency, a toxic mix of white nationalism, Islamophobia, transphobia, violent misogyny, and anti-migrant hysteria is rapidly coalescing into a growing movement that has in turn sparked a surge of interest in anti-fascist organizing. Battle lines are being drawn, and street clashes are escalating. In this month’s episode of Trouble, anarchist media collective subMedia interviews a number of individuals from the US, Canada and the UK in order to get a better understanding of just what it is that we’re up against, what a viable strategy for confronting this threat might look like, what steps we can take in order to mount an effective response, and how this all fits into our efforts to build a revolutionary movement against capitalism and the state.”

Snacks and drinks from 7pm. Film showing from 7.30pm, followed by discussion.

Donations for food and film welcome to help fund continuing antifascist organising in Bristol and beyond.

Anarchist Action Network meeting 18th June

Left Forum 2017: Rojava

Who’s Beating Back ISIS in Syria? Talk by Rahila Gupta in Letchworth Garden City 12th July 2017 7:30pm.

Predominantly Kurdish defence forces, led equally by women and men commanders, are in the forefront of the fight against ISIS. Unnoticed by most of the world and its media, in the middle of a war zone in Rojava Northern Syria, a radical secular experiment in class and race equality and direct democracy with women in the driving seat is taking place. It could provide a model of governance for the rest of Syria but are its ideas too radical for both its allies and its enemies?

Wednesday 12th July, 7:30pm, at David’s Bookshop, Eastcheap, Letchworth Garden City, SG6 3DE. £3 entry. www.davids-bookshops.co.uk.
Organised by the North Herts Friends of Rojava. Contact: nhfor@outlook.com.

Letwin sticks his neck out!

Word reaches us that Evil Ollie Letwin The architect of NHS privatisation, racist, supporter of fox hunting, badger-baiting and other horrors, is offering a frank exchange of views with some of his intended victims. “Come and question Oliver Letwin at 6 pm on Wednesday 24th May at Loders Village Hall DT6 3SA” facebook event

felix2Rrrright, now, ahahahahahaa!

A warm welcome is assured for the old etonian author of ‘Privatising the World’ who will be delighted to answer questions about how he has made a career out of selling us things we already own. He can no longer show his face in Dorchester, so he’s holding his ‘public’ meeting in Maiden Newton, which is bloody difficult to get to, even if you live in the vicinity, because they’ve cut all the bus services.

Message from the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, Southampton Branch.

Hello everyone

Please help us to make a noise for Palestine.We will be leafleting outside West Quay on Saturday between 10.30 and 1.30. Please join us. We hope to give out some balloons, display some banners and sing some protest songs.If you are planning to come or help, please e-mail me on pscsoton@gmail.com The event is to Mark the commemoration of the “Nakba” and to raise awareness of the involvement of the UK government due to the Balfour Declaration. The UK did not fullfil its’ obligations to the people of Palestine and allowed the widespread accumulation of Palestinian land by the Zionist movement. 100 years on from the Balfour Declaration and 69 years after the Nakba, there is still no justice for Palestine and the state of Israel continues to illegally settle Palestinian land. Please join us for a peaceful event to raise awareness of these issues.

Also if you can help with other stalls at either Sainsburys’ Bitterne or West Quay in May or June please get in touch.
