May 25 Riots Reframed - Documentarymore >>
Tuesday 21st May 7.00pm
We face the greatest crisis in the history of humanity. Economic depression, imperialist war, climate catastrophe, and grotesque social inequalities threaten to tear the world apart. What is to be done? The lesson of history is that human beings make their own history.
Launching his new book, A Marxist History of the World: from Neanderthals to Neoliberals, archaeologist and historian Neil Faulkner argues that history is open and contested. It is an active process of creation in which different futures are possible. It depends on what we do.
Powered by the interaction of technological change, wars between rulers, and class struggle from below, history is a constant struggle for control over society’s wealth. For 5,000 years, that wealth has served greed and war. Now, in the great crisis of the early 21st century, we must act to create a different future.
The meeting will include plenty of time for questions and discussion. All welcome. Join us.
Described by The Guardian as ‘enlightening and apocalyptic in equal measure’, Dr Neil Faulkner is a research fellow at Bristol University, a revolutionary socialist activist, and the author of numerous books, including Rome: Empire of the eagles (2008). He was a lead consultant and contributor to Sky Atlantic’s The British.
The Radical Workers block contained members of Bristol SolFed, Bristol AFed, the IWW and other local anarchists. The march stopped outside Primark and called for solidarity with Bangladeshi garment workers who died in the Rana Plaza factory. It is now understood that over 600 people died and many more are still missing.
After the rally in Castle Park the Radical Workers block returned to Primark. Here they blockaded the entrance and turned many shoppers away.

Public Meeting for Workers’ Memorial Day: The Fight Against Blacklisting
Monday 29 April 2013 @ 7.30pm Tony Benn House, 92 Victoria Street, Redcliffe, Bristol BS1 6AY
Politicians and employers like to portray the blacklisting of trade union members for their health & safety activities as a thing of the past. That does not correspond with the reality of life for those who continue to stick their neck out to protect themselves, their workmates and the public.
The meeting will be introduced by:
A discussion organised by Bristol & District Hazards Group & Bristol Radical History Group.
