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

A presentation and discussion with a comrade from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. For the exchange of ideas and experiences of anarchist thought and action, with a focus on resistance to the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. [Note: the summer Olympics 2012 are coming to London, and the same process is happening here – massive budget overspend to be covered by us taxpayers, massive profits for private contractors, more gentrification & exploitation & social control. What can we learn?] Continue reading Social War is Everywhere – No 2010 Olympics on Stolen Land

Many UK anarchists have been surprised by the intensity and longevity of the Greek rebellion, that exploded onto the streets on the night of 6th December 2008, following the police murder of 15 year old Alexis Grigoropoulos , in the Eksarhia area of Athens. Demos, occupations, riots, strikes, sabotage and expropriations continued for 17 days before slacking off over the holiday period, although here in the UK the mainstream media effectively dropped the story after 4 or 5 days.
Statement produced by Brighton Solidarity Federation (adapted for bristol) about the conflict in Gaza, for international solidarity with civilians in the middle-east – against all governments and gangsters.
