Anarchists meet in Bristol to plan resistance to NATO summit
Next weekend (19th/20th April) people from different parts of the UK will converge on Bristol for a meeting of AAN: the Anarchist Action Network.
AAN is organising against the NATO summit happening in Newport in early September, as well as preparing an anarcho-outreach tour in which a week-long programme of events will take place in a city as a collaboration between locals and non-locals. The first of these is called “Newport Rising” and will be 26th May-1st June in Newport.
Recent anti-NATO actions have included banner drops in Newport, a blockade of NATO’s summit-planning conference in Sussex (and leafletting of the nearby town), and street theatre in South Wales:
The first day (Sat) of the Bristol meeting is a chance to discuss and make decisions as a group; the second day (Sun) is focused on working groups and practical preparations.
Both days will be 11am-5pm. Day 1 is at ARC, Broad St. Day 2 is at Kebele, Robertson Rd. A mid-day meal will be provided both days. (See event calendar).
Everyone welcome! (except cops and journalists). It is also fine to come for just one of the two days if you want.

Please also get in touch if you can offer crashspace, or are willing to help with cooking or childcare. Thanks!
