Radical History Zone @ the Anarchist Bookfair

rhz-2015-posterOnce again this year on Saturday 25 April, comrades from the Bristol Radical History Group have taken on organising a small Radical History Zone as a part of the Bristol anarchist bookfair.

Again they’ll be based at Hydra Bookshop all day, which is at 34 Old Market, Bristol BS2 0EZ – just a 5 minute walk from Trinity Centre – and running a series of 6 meetings starting at 12noon.

Here is the full RHZ programme, you can also find it on the BRHG website, download it here as a pdf RHZ_full info and indeed as a Facebook event. Continue reading Radical History Zone @ the Anarchist Bookfair

Kebele Open Day as it Celebrates 20 years of Creative Resistance

Kebele social centre is holding a community Open Day on Saturday 8 March (details on images), and welcomes anyone from the local neighbourhood to pop in, look around, and have a chat. This is the 20th year since the Kebele project started, and whilst it is open to the local community whenever it is actually open, it has made a specific effort to invite people along on Saturday. So come!

Kebele started in the autumn of 1995, when a bunch of activists in need of housing occupied the empty building. When Kebele was 18yrs old, we wrote this article about its history & purpose. Kebele is an overtly anarchist space, and is now guided by a clear set of principles. The Open Day is an opportunity for people to gain a better understanding of its aims and activities, and clarify any questions they may have. It’s also a chance to socialise, enjoy the vegan food from Kebele’s cafe, and find out about some of the many & varied anarchist activities in and around Bristol. So come!
