accompanied by a double bass and a washboard.

A fundraiser gig for the Red and Black Umbrella Social Centre, featuring ‘The Feminists‘ all the way from Germany, ‘Rita Lynch‘ from Bristol and the second ever gig of Red and Black Umbrella resident band ‘Breach of the Peace‘.
A voluntary donation will be asked at the door for vital repairs and equipment needed to make the Social Centre better. We could buy more LED lights, a better battery, fix various holes in the walls, and generally do loads of things to make parts of the building warmer and lighter. So come on down xxx

The Red and Black Umbrella is hosting an event dedicated to discussion issues around the action and the movement.

Come along to hear from someone who was there in London and to discuss the way forward for the Occupy movement, here and around the world.
