A weekend of talks and short films to celebrate 100 years of fighting fascism. All welcome.
In conjunction with the International Brigades Memorial Trust, Bristol Anti-Fascists presents a weekend of talks and films celebrating our rich collective history of fighting fascism in the UK and beyond. Come along, learn, discuss, share, network and plan for the future.
Events will run from 10-5.30 on Saturday and 10-4 on Sunday and a healthy, vegan lunch will be offered for a suggested donation on both days. In the cafe room, we are excited to be hosting the ANTIFASCISTAS exhibition by the International Brigades Memorial Trust.
A full programme will be released shortly but a list of confirmed talks is given below. If you would like to recommend a speaker or a film please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Workers Power: Unions against Fascists”
“Bristol, an Anti-Fascist City”
“Beating the Fascists: Physical Resistance to Fascism”
“Fighting Fascism in the Middle East, a report by ex-YPG volunteers”
“A History of the Anti-Fascist Network”
“The 5th Column; Partisan Resistance to the Nazis”
“Culture Wars: Music against Nazis”
We will be showing many short films throughout the weekend. If you have any films you would like us to show (or films you would like us not to show) then drop us a line.
On Saturday night there will be a social event for anybody interested in discussing things further or networking. Details to be released nearer the time.
This is a free event but can only survive off the back of donations to cover our logistical costs. Anybody who can or wants to is invited to give a £5 suggested donation. Nobody will be turned away. Accommodation can be helped with if you are travelling from out of town but advance notice is needed.
BASE social centre (formerly Kebele) is an anarchist/libertarian space that survives off the hard-work of volunteers. It is a safe space and will not tolerate any form of oppressive behaviour at any time. As a rule, don’t be an arsehole.
