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.
Also this will be the launch party of the first Ffyc offer Ffesbwc DIY underground zine for a year! Info stalls include contributions from the IWW Cymru – the Welsh branch of the Industrial Workers of the World who have recently celebrated their first year.
We’ll also be raising funds for people arrested on a Smash EDO action earlier this year.
£4 on the door. (For a good cause, but could be less if you don’t have it.)

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!
Doors TBA Drink tolerated after 7pm, Drunkenness not. No drugs, no thugs!
By 07:00 on wednesday 14th august, the roof of the squat had been occupied by a lone squatter who played hide and seek with CCTV in the area for over an hour to pass the time. At approximately 08:30 United Welsh representative Barry James along with police, bailiffs, members of the fire crime unit and workers from Celtic Horizons (approx 20-30 total bodies) arrived and began attacking the frame of a back door. At this point the lone squatter climbed down to seek support from locals (no phone calls could be made). By 09:10 the fuckers had gained access and begun applying sitex to several windows, no support had arrived in time.
Solidarity with the self-organised resistance of migrants in Morocco to the EU Border control regime by European anarchists staying in Tangiers, a city on the Morocco-Spain/Africa-EU border.
We’re unable to host the talk tonight as no-one from No Borders Morocco can make it due to an ongoing issue in another city…
…but we’re happy instead to show the film 14 Kilómetros, by Gerardo Olivares, about the situation there. One of the activists plans to come to Cardiff to share some of the info-talk prepared, and the music that’s been written there, another time soon.
The location has also changed…
Tonight (17th July) at Cardiff’s newest squat – on Moira Terrace, opposite the prison.
There will be a film screening of Gerardo Olivares’ movie “14 Kilometros”
