Oct 27 @ 3:30 pm – 6:00 pm

The cineforum will start around 3.30 pm and then we have a vegan dinner. Everybody is wellcome! You can see more about that in this event: https://www.facebook.com/events/513297362835840/ “Bristol Sisterhood continue with the project to screen audiovisual material with a strong feminist content. In this ocassion: Melmaridè (divorced in dialect) is the story of group of women from Piacenza, a small city in the north of Italy, who challenged the disdain of their families and of local institutions by joining the voices of the wider international feminist movement. They first founded a Feminist Collective and later started a public women’s health clinic and counseling centre. Forty years later, these women find themselves different, older, but still linked by friendship and the same non-conformist spirit, determined in their desire not to forget that experience that had changed them forever. Director Elisa Bozzarelli will be joining us. After the screening, you will have the opportunity to enjoy a fantastic vegan dinner at BASE’s regular Sunday eve cafe (Suggested donation of £2.50 for dinner, £1 for pudding and 50p for drinks)”.

-Come and find out more about an action in July where activists shut down the construction site of a proposed new gas power station.including information about the ongoing fundraiser to cover costs (chuffed.org/project/support-gas-activists)

Food is on a donations basis (~£2.50 for starter & main, ~£1 pudding, ~50p drinks).

Anarchism in Turkey
Nov 7 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Talk and discussion
7th November 2019

Vegan meal 6.30pm
Talk 7.30pm

DAF are an anarchist organisation that has been organising within
Turkey, Syria and the surrounding areas for the last 10 years. During this time they have faced a lot of repression from the state and from ISIS. Despite this, they have created their own economy to be able to sustain themselves and their projects, done many inspiring actions, have different groups with several magazines and a monthly newspaper, weekly talks, and are the first anarchists to raise a flag at Newros (Kurdish new year) celebrations. A truly inspiring group that is well-organised
and work intersectionally, with solidarity and mutual aid at its core.

A member of the Anarchist Federation, who has recently visited DAF, will give a presentation followed by discussion on what we can learn from DAF, and apply this to anarchism in the areas we organise.

~ BRISTOL SISTERHOOD’S ANTI-HARASSMENT PRE CAMPAIGN EVENT ~

As we progress with our Anti-Harassment Campaign, Bristol Sisterhood is organizing a great event to raise awareness about the campaign we have been working on lately and oficially invite other members of collectives to join forces! We’re hoping this Social gathering will bring more invididuals together, who share similar beliefs and want to make a change.

WHEN

Saturday, 16th of November, 4 pm, at Base Cafe, Roberston Road, Easton.

WHAT TO EXPECT

– Screening of our latest Campaign Video filmed in Bristol by our very-talented group
– Various dynamics and debates on the Sexual Harassment and Abuse in the city we live in
– Crafts: Banner and Stencil Making
– Vegan Dinner specially prepared by us * ( Suggested Donation £4 which will be used towards our campaign)

4:20pm Presentation and games
5:30pm Screening (3 short films and our video campaign) and debate
6.30 pm Banner making (discussion and creativity session).
7.30pm Vegan dinner

This event gives us the opportunity to showcast our video, to meet other individuals, but this is also a way to educate ourselves more about the current climate of the issues we are facing in our most loved city, Bristol and beyond! We feel that we need to talk more about harassment and sexual violence and raise awareness amongst communities!

This event is also a “warm-up” before Reclaim the night!, where we will march together with other collectives to peacefully protest against Sexual Harassment, Domestic Abuse and Gender Violence!
