In March Bristol AFed called a meeting for people who wanted to organise actions and events around international workers day - May 1st. WE believe it is important to remember the struggles of the past, and to focus the fights of the present, linking them together. 27 people attended the first meeting representing a broad range of groups and views, and have been working together to plan for may day since.
We have issued this callout for people to get invovled in Bristol, and to take action across the UK on May Day, its been quiet for too long!
So far many plans are coming together, but it can still be made better by more people getting involved. The next meeting is This Thursday 12th of April, 7.30pm upstairs at the Stag & Hounds on Old Market, come on down!
So far plans include;
Reclaim the Beach - A RtS inspired action, starting on May Day at 2pm in Queen Square
An Occupation - Location and Time/Date to be announced nearer/at the time.
A Large May Day March on Saturday 5th of May, gathering from 11am on College Green.Full article
Building on the success of the previous march in Bristol to mourn the passing of the NHS, we organised an Easter NHS resurrection performance today. As well as the usual marching business, we were keen to get a fun spectacular element to our protest, to kick off the long fight ahead resisting the privatising cannibals circling our health service. So with that in mind we climbed into scrubs, downloaded the casualty theme music and gathered around the operating theatre.
A young actor volunteered to be the embodiment of the recently perished NHS, and we all worked out how we were gonna cure him. "Nurse pass the direct action; this man has suffered acute internal bleeding and a Tory hit and run."
Plenty of people turned up again, demonstrating that there is lots of energy in our city ready to put up a fearsome resistance to the soulless profit eaters. We intend to try our hardest to beat them. If you are willing to do the same then please get in touch.
Join us this Saturday in the centre of Bristol for a protest and march against the privatisation of the NHS!
Recently, in Lansleys own words, the NHS has made efficiency savings of £8billion! The NHS has halved cancer screening turnaround times, massively reduced morbidity regarding heart disease, and improved access to dentistry. Lansley says this is about patient choice, but we believe choice can be given to patients without the need for privatisation. We don't need privatisation, we need to reinvest that money into frontline services where it's needed. Of course, this is what he says he's doing, but we think this Bill will lead to a two tier healthcare system, at a greater cost to the poorer people of society, much like America. Research has shown that if you look after the health of the poorest of society, EVERYBODY benefits, this is in your interest!
Meet us at the fountains, 13:00, bring your whistles, megaphones and make some noise about how passionate you are for these important life-saving services! There is also a theme for those that wish to dress up - resusitation!! Bring your scrubs, lab coats and wheelchairs. The protest may march at some point, to be announced.

Bristolians kick started a summer of resistance outside the 27th International Bristol Drone Conference. The protest began at around 9 am at the corner of Baldwin street and Telephone Avenue, by midday around 80 people were making a wall of sound including a performance from a live band.
Protesters from various different campaign groups including Palestine Solidarity Campaign, Bristol Against Arms Trade, Smash EDO and Bristol Amnesty. Stood united against the 27th International Bristol UAV Conference.
A group of protesters climbed between two windows to unveil a Palestinian flag and there were several reports of arms dealers needing a police escort to leave the area. At around 3 o’clock the police came in and began to attack the demonstration arresting 7 people on various different charges, from public nuisance to assaulting a p.c. An all too familiar picture of the state repressing peaceful dissent.
