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.

This is at 6pm on Wednesday 22nd October.

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.

All contributions welcome but no-one is expected to speak.

Two great workshops returning!

We’re happy to announce the return of two great RBU workshops:

The free bike workshop (formerly Black Spokes) and the Circus skill-share are back!

We’re hoping to make these both regular events again but it depends if there is enough interest to make it happen, so please turn up to support these events if you can!

We have a new number!

The Red and Black Umbrella and Cardiff Squatters Network have shared a number for the last year.

This number was cut off by the greedy capitalists at giffgaff in April after we sent you all too many text messages (even though we were on an unlimited free text package)!

The new number for the RBU and the Squatters Network is 078 4560 1239.

Look out for many more texts from us (until they cut us off again probably), and  shortly we will send out a reminder about today’s workday (starting at 11am) and upcoming events this weekend: KilnAboy gig – Friday / Folk, Garden and Art Day – Sunday!

We’d also like to say a big welcome into being to SubrosA,cropped-header6 the newest social centre in the UK - now open in Manchester. You can read more about them here and the family of social centre’s in the UK here.
