Subvert 2008 Festival: Bristol – 24 to 26 October

15-10-2008 21:04

ABC flyer
A weekend Festival of Resistance drawing together the themes or anti-prison campaigning & prisoner support, and organising against border controls and the demonisation of migrants. You don’t need to be a genius, nor an anarchist, to see the links between the two, as the number of prisoners and detained migrants rockets, as state surveillance reaches new levels of intrusiveness, all against a backdrop of global financial crisis and the start of a major economic depression.

Remember "Pseudo-groups". . . .how far back does that pattern go? "Blackshirts?"

15-10-2008 18:49

Recent information at least re-opens questions about "accepted" bits of the "historical" past. The intervention of those with pots of cash to spend on gumshoe types, either trying to smear, frame, or associate sensible-sounding types with "fire-breathing terrorists" is at least matched by the frequency of the same sort of paid gumshoe types ( sometimes touting for work, or whipping up "customers" paranoia to play a bit of "tail-wag-dog" ) setting up entirely "owned" false-flag operations, occasionally by dropping their people into a group then pushing serious/sensible people out ( either with a bit of character smearing, the accusal of them as "agent provocateurs", or wearing them down - or worse. . . . ) - but at times with entirely created groups - sometimes with several different "depths" (for when people unwittingly dragged into them saw through one layer of the spin!)

Abdi Ahmed: "England is the only place I can call home"

15-10-2008 14:02

Abdi Ahmed
"Somalia is not only a deadlock and a place of conflict generating many refugees, but for me a country that I simply do not call 'home'. I left the country when I was four years old. I have never been to Somalia since and my entire family is in the UK. I do not even speak Somali fluently enough to make my way around this country that I only know through stories."

Stopping the city.

14-10-2008 22:14

Outside the Royal Exchange.
