CAPE infonight
Aug 4 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Join Community Action on Prison Expansion (CAPE) to stop further mass incarceration in the U.K. through the development of a mega prison in Wellingborough.

Private company Kier is being paid £143 million to build the proposed prison, which will lock up over 1600 people.

Wellingborough is one of the areas most affected by job losses and other impacts of austerity. Whilst Kier has promised the prison will bring in new jobs, the introduction of exploitable prison labour is likely to threaten the jobs and wages of the local community.

Kier is profiting off exploitation of people in cages, most of whom will be working class; disproportionate numbers will also be Black and Brown, LGBTQ, and/or disabled.

We say: stop building prisons, let us build support for our communities!

Join the resistance:
9th August
16th August
to say you too believe we should build communities, not cages!

Join us & get involved

Info on transport coming soon!

Film Screening of Running for Good
Sep 22 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

RUNNING FOR GOOD, the feature-length sports documentary follows world record marathon runner Fiona Oakes in her attempt not only to set a new global record in endurance racing, but to compete in the “toughest footrace on earth,” the Marathon Des Sables, a 250km race through the Sahara Desert.
Fiona Oakes has made a name for herself as a unique endurance runner. She is the fastest woman in the world to run a marathon on all seven continents, and the north pole, in both cumulative and elapsed time. Fiona’s achievements are made even more astounding due to the fact that she was told at age 14 that she would never walk properly, let alone ever run. She would undergo more than 17 radical knee surgeries which ultimately led to having her entire right kneecap removed. The process was agonizing, the rehab worse, the records she’s gone on to set even more astounding.

With overcoming her own adversity, Fiona’s true drive to achieve incredible feats of speed and human endurance are motivated by a deep desire to raise awareness for the plight of animals. Her achievements help fund a 450+ animal sanctuary that she takes care of every day.

Join us for an optional (but tasty!) vegan meal first from 6.30pm (main is suggested donation £3, pudding is suggested donation of £1).
We’ll put the film on at 7.30pm. Suggested donation of £2 or £3 to watch the film – all donations for the film screening will go to Tower Hill sanctuary (which Fiona runs). We’ll also be selling copies of Jo’s Vegan Nosh at the event for £5, all proceeds of the book that evening will go to Tower Hill Stables Sanctuary: http://www.towerhillstables.com/

Overcoming our internal neoliberal monster workshop
Sep 29 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Overcoming our internal neoliberal monster

Workshop by Making Change Collective in collaboration with Plan C

Date/time: Sunday 29th September, 4 – 6pm

Across the world, neoliberalism has been the dominant way of organizing economically, socially and politically for the past three decades. Even if we are unfamiliar with the word, it shapes all our lives and even our ways of thinking. Of course, we may be highly critical of a growth-based economy in which capital and corporations are freer than ever to do as they will. At the same time, we can’t help but internalize this overpowering ideology, shaping the way that we feel we can or can’t take action. We receive the message from neoliberalism that, ‘you can achieve anything if you try hard enough,’ and then internalize feelings of inadequacy when we find we hit invisible barriers. We know that things are getting worse, but we feel there’s nothing we can do to really change anything, because we’ve come to understand that ‘there is no alternative’.

This workshop seeks to deconstruct the beliefs that are holding us back and to begin to build a new framework together for going forth in the world. It will include collective reflection of how the workshop could be best used in the future.

Feminist cineforum
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)”.
