When Stokes Croft erupted into riots last year, national attention was focused on a fascinating and diverse area of Bristol. This event brings locally made films on Stokes Croft to the big screen; from the anti-Tesco Riots to the graffiti scene, to some strange technological goings on you might never have heard of! We have a number of filmmakers bringing their own filmic contributions and individual perpectives to the much debated subject of Stokes Croft. We want your contribution too. So join us for a night of films, discussion and debate.

10-05-2012 16:13The recent conviction of a grooming gang of nine Muslim men from Rochdale has put the far right into a frenzy. Anti-fascists might remember that the far right have been all over this case since the start of the trial. The EDL, BNP, National Front, Infidels and British Peoples Party all turned up to protest at the start of the trial, attempted to attack the defendants and almost caused a mistrial by attacking the defence barristers. There then followed attempts to stir up race riots in Heywood, when shops and businesses belonging to Muslims were attacked by a mob of white youths, something that was whipped up online by nationalists desperate for a populist cause (for example, posters on Nazi site, Stormfront, who could barely suppress their excitement about the “Race riot in Heywood!!! On now!”). None of the businesses targeted were actually owned by the men involved in the trial.
