We Are Now

Sunday 5th June
Dinner at 6pm, film at 7pm followed by a talk and Q&A with one of the film makers.

We Are Now (documentary)
22 minutes with English subtitles CrimethInc. Ex-Workers’ Collective
At the high point of the George Floyd Rebellion, cop-free zones sprung up from coast to coast.

As they were unfolding, Atlanta police killed Rayshard Brooks, a black father of four.

Angry demonstrators torched the Wendy’s where Brooks was shot, occupied it, and defended it from police and Klansmen for 24 days.

‘We Are Now’ is a small window into the delicate moments of freedom—joyous and tragic—that filled the autonomous zones of summer 2020.

International solidarity – a discussion

 

International Solidarity-page001Kebele Dangerous Thoughts collective invites you to a discussion, for collective learning and liberation!

Solidarity across borders has a long and proud history, from working class labour struggles, feminist campaigns and war resistance to fights against apartheid, fascism and corporate power. Anarchists have always recognised the importance of standing together with comrades in far off lands. We understand that all our struggles are linked and we share the same enemies. But we have also learned that international solidarity is not without it’s problems and questions that need asking. Here are just a few:

– What can the uk anarchist movement learn from, and what can it really offer, struggles in other places?

– Is it easier to support revolutionary movements in far off places than struggling for revolution here?

– Can we really understand enough of the complexities of the struggles we hope to support?
