As part of co-ordinated action by the International Workers' Association across several countries, Indymedia and Bristol Solidarity Federation are hosting an evening of film and discussion on housing matters. Using film footage from the 1930s and 1970s, the struggles of ordinary people to live in a decent, affordable and secure home will be remembered. The talks and discussions will focus on the present day, providing: an overview of current national and local housing issues; an analysis of the expanding private rented sector; an insight into the tenants movement in Bristol; and a first hand account of DIY housing in the form of a local co-operative.
Brewhaha with support from Babylon festival presents a 2-venue link-up BENEFIT FOR BRISTOL DEFENDANT SOLIDARITY.

After months of planning, Visions for Change 2013 will open its doors to the public at 11am Saturday 27th April. More than just groups with stalls, this year’s event features talks and short films, as well as the opportunity to engage with various groups active in the Bath area, find out what they are doing to make the world a better place and to get involved.
Organised by Bath People’s Assembly, the independent democratic forum that all residents of Bath are welcome to attend the meetings of, the event promises to be an exciting one, with a diverse range of groups and speakers, from environmental groups such as Greenpeace and Green Vision, groups concerned with business and economics such as Avon Co-operative Development Agency, the Bath Oliver and Bath LETS, groups campaigning for peace and an end to poverty such as Bath StopWar Coalition, Bath Amnesty and Bath Oxfam, groups opposing government cuts and the current handling of the economy including Bath Against Cuts, Occupy Bath, 38 Degrees and BARF, and many others, including Bath Foodcycle, New Hope and directors of radical films.
Last year’s event was a huge success – the event was packed out and many groups met each other for the first time and have since worked together more closely. It also inspired a similar event in Norwich, and an organiser from Visions for Change Norwich will be speaking at the Bath event. This year the event will be held on two floors – on the ground floor will be stalls and a café run by South West Food Not Bombs, and in the basement will be talks, short films and a radical photography exhibition.
The event is free and is open to the public between 11am and 3pm,and is in the Friends’ Meeting House, York St., Bath, BA1 1NG. Up to date information can be found on the Facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/158627290953876/?fref=ts
20th April, looking sunny
Bristol's 5th anarchist bookfair moves to The Trinity Centre this year, enticed by the possibilities of the green open space outside. Expect a mixture of traditional bookfair inside - that is some 66 tables of stalls, 38 meetings & workshops; along with aspects of a fayre outside - outdoor activities, perma-nent-culture, fun & games. Plus there'll be a kids space, and delicious vegan cafe. Entry is free/donations requested, and everyone is welcome!
The Bristol Anarchist Bookfair is on 20 April 2013, from 11am to 6pm
At The Trinity Centre, Trinity Road, Bristol BS2 0NW
(Radical History Zone down the road at Hydra Bookshop, 34 Old Market St)
Thatcher may have gone, but her legacy remains - brutal neo-liberal economic policies (ironically part-funded and underpinned/bailed out by public money), backed up by the iron fist of the state to clamp down on any dissent (also funded by public money!). To do away with her legacy will require ideas, practices and action - debated, refined and implemented on a mass scale.
As we enter yet another year of the current economic recession, 2013 must be the year that Britain joins up with much of the rest of Europe in resisting the top down austerity measures that see the rich getting richer, and the rest of us getting poorer - the north-west European Spring has got to start somewhere soon!. The Bookfair says loud and clear that 'we won't pay for their crisis', and aims to bring you the information, knowledge, skills and contacts to put that slogan into operation. So whether you are a hardened anarchist, or a pissed off local looking for a dialogue about alternatives to the mess this country is in, you'll find something for everyone at the Bristol Anarchist Bookfair. We'll be seeing you here then!
a big thanks to all those running stalls, meetings, the cafe, outside events, the after-party, and everyone else who has helped beforehand and on the day!
