Trump: Symptom, Problem or Distraction? – Discussion night next Tuesday @ Hydra

Bristol Anarchist Federation

trumpblogPerspectives on Trump over at the UK AFed website

After a month off for the recent demo against council cuts, our discussion nights are back!

Trump’s election, and his actions since, have seen a massive wave of protest and action across the US to combat his destructive policies.

Many have echoed these protests in the UK and elsewhere, with thousands coming to the streets (some for the first time). However, other than voicing our somewhat vague displeasure, what purpose does this series of protests serve?

Can it be moulded into effective trans-Atlantic solidarity? Serve as a warning to those looking to import Trump-style politics to Europe? More importantly, can it have an impact on the abhorrent racism, misogyny and anti-working class actions of politicians much closer to home?

Bristol Anarchist Zine Fair, 13th May 2017

Zines, pamphlets, booklets… whatever you want to call them, many of us can agree that they’re a great way to spread information and share ideas easily and accessibly.

So this May, as a build up to this year’s bookfair, we are having a Bristol anarchist zinefair! There will be activist and distro stalls including our own distro of the bookfair collective’s favourites. There will also be a zine making workshop and other workshops and discussions. Kebele vegan cafe will be serving food and cakes all day. In the evening there will be a fundraising gig at a different venue, more info on that nearer the time.

May 13th 12 – 5pm
Kebele social centre
14 Robertson Road

And to set your minds at rest and put to bed all the rumours that have been circulating, YES the Bookfair itself IS happening! It’s going to be on the 16th of September and it’s going to be fabulous.

Verne Visitors Group are holding a public meeting about immigration detention at Dorchester Corn Exchange on Friday 10th March at 7:30 p.m. free admission, all welcome.

If you can, please come to make the point that detention is not wrong for all the bad effects it has (which are frequently listed – mental health, physical health, loneliness, despair etc), although it certainly does have these effects.

It is inherently wrong to lock people up just because they don’t have the right nationality papers
