On Thursday 20th March, the RBU is proud to present a Film screening of ‘This is England’, followed by a discussion on ‘how we can oppose the National Front’.
Vegan food and popcorn (for donation) will also be served..- Join us from 7pm.
This Is England is a 2006 British drama film written and directed by Shane Meadows. The story centres on young skinheads in England in 1983. The film illustrates how their subculture, which has its roots in 1960s West Indian culture, especially ska, soul, and reggae music, became adopted by white nationalists, which led to divisions within the skinhead scene. The film’s title is a direct reference to a scene where the character Combo explainshis nationalist views using the phrase “this is England” during his speech.
And join a few of us afterwards as we head to ‘Strictly Bounce’ – a fundraiser for Stop NATO Cymru at Undertone on Church Street.
10pm – 3am // £3 Entry.
Featuring: Greggerz, Wowza, Dash & App, D#mental, Steady Jay.
If you’re organised enough to carry ’round a diary (I am definitely not) penciling in the
1st AND 2nd of November is highly advisable as it will see our first festival!
A two day event ending on the 2nd November to celebrate 2 YEARS of the occupied building in Cardiff. Easy enough to remember, right?
Beginning as a vague plan to host an Anarcho-Folk festival in Cardiff; the event has now evolved into a two day celebration of the ‘Brolly.
The space it has provided us has been invaluable to many, so we invite anyone and everybody who has shared the space with us to come, in particular any guests we have had to stay, musicians who’ve played and individuals who’ve led any lessons or workshops. Please come and celebrate with us!
This is an open event and will be donation upon entry to pay the acts who are travelling. Any excess money donated to us will go towards Cardiff squat funds and to Freedom Press Bookshop (who are still raising money to repair their shop and replace up to 700 books lost after fascists petrol-bombed their shop earlier this year).
Nobody will be refused entry if they cannot pay.
We will be releasing more information over the next two weeks to keep you all in suspense, just know that you will need your best dancing boots and both headliners will be supported by amazing local acts and musicians.
If you would like to play at the festival, run a stall or workshop on either of the days get in touch.
Also, any help with cooking or supplying skipped/vegan food for the festival would be much appreciated as we will have many mouths to feed!
Drink tolerated after 7pm, Drunkenness not.
No drugs, no thugs!
Love and Peas, Emy xx
On saturday the 13th of july, cardiff abc has organised a one day anti-prison event at the red and black umbrella. The event aims at creating a wider awareness and critique of the ever expanding prison society and people’s struggles against it.
The event will run from 1-11 and is split into two distinct parts.
From 1-6 there will be space for meetings, discussions, talks, workshops and skillshares, for the most part the discussions will be relatively informal and structureless so as to not stifle creativity and originality. We are asking attendees to not bring alcohol to this portion of the event
to discourage all day drinking and encourage clear, sober and respectful interaction.
From 6-11(ish) there will be a variety of music and poetry being
performed. There is a suggested donation of £5 for this portion of the
event with any excess after costs going to cardiff abc to distribute to
various prisoners/defendants that we are in contact with (for more info on
this just ask.)
There will be hot vegan food available from the beginning of the event, as
well as a variety of relevant zines; all for donation.
Hope to see you there.
