Flush UKIP out of Bath!

Recently, UKIP were invited by a Green Party candidate to attend a protest in Bath against the closure of public toilets. If you object to UKIP being invited to, or attending anti-cuts events, please read, sign and share the open letter below. If UKIP are not disinvited, there will be a pro-public toilets, anti-UKIP presence at the protest. We hope you can make it.

This followed the cancellation of their Dartford meeting the night before, along with a humiliating turnout and disruptive opposition from anti-fascists who rumbled their new meeting point in Swanley, Kent.

Bristol Radical Film Festival Presents the Indymedia Series MASSACRE IN VITORIA & INDIGNADOS 21st July 8pm

At Cube Cinema, 21st July, 8pm. 2014 sees the 75th anniversary of the end of the Spanish civil war, when a fragile democracy was allowed to be overturned by the combined forces of European Fascist regimes. Tonight, we’ll be showing two new Reel News films; Massacre in Vitoria, which tells the story of a 1976 all out indefinite strike of factory workers in the Basque Country that culminated in a general strike of the entire city, and Indignados from September 2012, which shows not only street assemblies but also the violence directed by police towards a peaceful demonstration – and why finally purging the Spanish state of fascists is still so important.
