The programme lists the huge array of stalls, and the details of the 34 debates, discussions and workshops covering most of the current hot topics. There are also events discussing anarchist ideas and practices, alongside talks and films about radical history over the last 100 years. You can find more details of the events, and other pdfs to download, on this page.
We’d like to thank the local police force, and Bristol city council, for demonstrating so clearly to us all their cosy relationship with big business over the Tescos affair. The state plays a key role in a capitalist society, and has a mutually beneficial relationship with the desire of global capital to maximise its profits. It will never willingingly stand in the way of large corporations doing whatever they want to do. The ongoing Tescos affair in Stokes Croft clearly demonstrates this historic relationship, and helps explain why anarchists oppose both capital and the state. Get along on 7 May and find out more.
