VoiceOver is coming to Bristol to host TWO screenings & discussions! Riots Reframed hopes to add to the city’s rich history of rioting. Stokes Croft alone hosted two sets of riots in 2011 – the first was a warm-up in April, and the second was in unison with the nationwide summer riots. I’ll be making my way over to host the two screenings (Friday and Saturday), say a few words and hopefully exchange some fire with the people of Bristol! | Fahim.
Screening One: Hamilton House, 80 Stokes Croft, Bristol, BS1 3QY | 24th May 2013 | 17:00 – 21:00
Tuesday 21st May 7.00pm
We face the greatest crisis in the history of humanity. Economic depression, imperialist war, climate catastrophe, and grotesque social inequalities threaten to tear the world apart. What is to be done? The lesson of history is that human beings make their own history.
Launching his new book, A Marxist History of the World: from Neanderthals to Neoliberals, archaeologist and historian Neil Faulkner argues that history is open and contested. It is an active process of creation in which different futures are possible. It depends on what we do.
Powered by the interaction of technological change, wars between rulers, and class struggle from below, history is a constant struggle for control over society’s wealth. For 5,000 years, that wealth has served greed and war. Now, in the great crisis of the early 21st century, we must act to create a different future.
The meeting will include plenty of time for questions and discussion. All welcome. Join us.
Described by The Guardian as ‘enlightening and apocalyptic in equal measure’, Dr Neil Faulkner is a research fellow at Bristol University, a revolutionary socialist activist, and the author of numerous books, including Rome: Empire of the eagles (2008). He was a lead consultant and contributor to Sky Atlantic’s The British.
Monday 13th May 8pm The Cube, Dove Street, Bristol. Entry £3/£4 (But nobody turned away due to lack of funds)
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.
