TAINA ASILI (ex Anti-Product vocalist) is a US born Puerto Rican singer,
combining powerful vocals with an energetic fusion of Afro-Latin,
reggae, and rock. She’s been producing music with la Banda Rebelde, and
as a duo and solo performer since 2010, and fighting the good fight for
prisoner liberation, indigenous rights and environmental justice for
well over a decade.
EVAN GREER (Riot folk Collective) is a radical genderqueer singer/song
writter from Boston, performing high energy folk that varies from
pop-punk poetry to foot-stompin’ bluegrass singalongs! Famous for
inspiring radicals, inciting change and campaigning tirelessly for
social and ecological justice (from serving as a street medic at the
anti-G8 mobilisation in Scotland to scoring major victories in the
battle for internet freedom).
EFA SUPERTRAMP (EX The Stilletoes) is a punk folk singer from Wales. She
has toured all over the UK and Europe, playing in protests, squats,
street corners, living rooms, bars and festivals, with songs bridging
the gap between uplifting and angry! She hates money, power and greed &
loves living life as free as she can.
BEYONDTHESTATIC is Rich Trigg, a Bristol based singer/songwriter making
noise in local bars and having a great time doing it. Cutting his teeth
on the cream of the South West’s open mic circuit armed with no more
than an acoustic guitar and an arsenal of soul bearing lyrics Trigg is
currently preparing material for his debut EP

Emma Sheppard was recently sentenced to two years’ prison for alleged damage to police car tyres. Emma is a longstanding volunteer at Kebele Bike Workshop and is active in many other areas of radical organising. She is a well-loved comrade and friend of many people who use kebele and share our politics. Her sentence is a political move by a system that props up power while eroding personal freedom – freedom that Emma struggles fiercely to protect. Kebele reaches out in solidarity with her in this political struggle and with love in the face or her own freedom being taken. Let us take this as a reminder to continue to resist systems of domination and to support each other in this resistance.
We encourage people to write to Emma and support her through her time in jail. She may be moved during her sentence, so check the Bristol ABC website before writing. At present her address is:
