Delivering action! Struggles in the postal sector

Bristol Anarchist Bookfair Collective and Kebele World Economics Discussion Group present:

Delivering action!

The UK’s postal workers have been the most militant workforce over the last decade. They continue to face the threat of part privatisation from New Labour and Lord Mandelson, despite the recent shelving of plans for the time being. But they will continue to be a key target as the cost of rescuing the banks crunches public spending, and the government seeks to balance the books by selling off yet more public assets.

Callout – Anarchist Movement Conference 2009

Recent months have seen anarchists from across the country meeting to plan and organise an Anarchist Movement Conference for 2009. This will take place on 6 & 7 June at Queen Mary & Westfield College, in East London. So far there has been minimal interest in Bristol for the conference, perhaps because people have been busy? Will this change? Continue reading Callout – Anarchist Movement Conference 2009

One thing is absolutely clear about the current situation in Gaza: the Israeli state is committing atrocities which must end immediately.

With hundreds dead and thousands wounded, it has become increasingly clear that the aim of the military operation, which has been in the planning stages since the signing of the original ceasefire in June, is to break Hamas completely.

What is Class?

Discussion/workshop hosted by Bristol Anarchist Bookfair Collective

Social class is one of the great ideas of modern times. It led to the formation of trade unions and political parties. It has begun great revolutions and wars. It has inspired acts of heroism and compassion and yet has been used to justify horror and barbarity.

Surprisingly for a common idea there is little agreement over what class actually is. Even politicians such as Thatcher and Blair who deny the importance or relevance of class cannot ignore it.

In this meeting we will cover questions such as:

What makes someone a member of a class?
Is class still relevant today?
How does class influence our lives?

We aim to make the meeting accessible to all so please come whether just to listen, ask questions, or to debate your ideas with others.

7.30pm Wednesday 21st January 2009. Kebele Social Centre, 14 Robertson Road, Easton, Bristol BS5 6JY.
Venue has good access for wheelchairs but toilets are upstairs.

Hot drinks will be available during the meeting.
