The EDL stands for racism, hatred and division - none of which we want to see brought into Bristol.The EDL claim the Bristol is a hotbed of Islamic Extremism, as they have with other cities they've visited in the past few years. Anybody who lives in or around Bristol knows this is not the case: Bristol is a city that can pride itself on its diversity and its tradition of accepting outsiders. The EDL have no interest in the well being of Bristol and its residents. They simply see this as an opportunity to impose their views upon our city, and to threaten and intimidate members of our communities.
We can all play a part on July 14th. Now is the time to think about what you want to do to oppose the EDL when they come to our community

Centrica are having their AGM this week on Fri 11th and local activists are planning to be heard...
On Fri 11th May we want to tell Hinkley investor, Centrica loud & clear No to new nuclear.
We believe that centrica’s pressure on the UK government to take more taxpayers money to pay for a project that they themselves believe will fail in order that their shareholders can profit out of us twice (once when they build the plant then again when they bill us for energy) is immoral and unethical.
The electricity market reform act already promised to these greedy utilities is a public subsidy by the back door. Nuclear power plants never have been and never will be profitable endeavours which is why in 2006 when the government tried to create the nuclear renaissance they knew it wouldn’t go down well with the public. Now after a six year campaign of lobbying and expensive PR campaigns to get the public to swallow nuclear as a ‘necessary evil’ they want to dump responsibility for financing back on the already skint public.
To this end we have a bit of armchair activism that everyone can join in with no matter what your time/energy/money commitments are...Full Article
This April a group of anarchists, leftists, trade unionists, students, workers and rebels came together. Their aim is to put May Day back on the map in Bristol. The result is a diverse range of events representing many struggles, or as we see it many facets of the same struggle; against oppression for a free and just society. We're looking for people not just to come a long but to get involved in shaping how the week turns out as we head towards the big day of action on may 5th.
