Bristol Anarchist Black Cross (ABC) hosts a monthly letter writing night at Kebele Social Centre with the aim of providing a basic support to prisoners by writing to them, since the main goal of state power is to isolate our comrades from the movement. We mainly write to 'political prisoners', but also believe that every prisoner is a political prisoner.
Wednesday, April 14th, 7 to 9pm.

Bristol ABC Prisoner Support group hosts it's monthly public letter-writing night from 7 to 9pm tonight, at kebele social centre, 14 Robertson Rd, Bristol BS5 6JY.
We encourage you to come along and get in touch with a political prisoner requesting support. Writing to prisoners is a form of solidarity, letters can be the only bright moment in a prisoners day, it helps them remember they have not been forgotten, and can bring them news, information, the exchange of ideas, and also the chance for them to keep us informed about how they are doing. Whether you would like to just send a short card expressing support, or enter into a longer-term correspondence, come along and find out more. read full story / add a comment

This Sunday, 10 May, sees the Bristol ABC prisoner support group take its turn at hosting the weekly vegan Sunday cafe at Kebele (http://www.kebelecoop.org).
The Bristol ABC group has been reactivated over the last year or so. There is a the need to provide support for political prisoners, and radicalised social prisoners, in the UK and abroad; and there is a need to begin campaigning against the prison-industrial complex – the sector of capitalism that makes a profit out of building and running prisons, and is slowly turning the whole of society into one big open prison. As more and more campaigners & protesters (anti-war & anti-militarist, anti-capitalist, animal rights, anti-fascist and more) are being locked away for years on end, our movement needs to increase its work in supporting and campaigning for our comrades & friends imprisoned by the state. read full story / add a comment

On 30 April the Met Police met with the Met Police Authority(MPA), chaired by Mayor Boris Johnson, to discuss the G20 policing operation. Meanwhile, seperately it was announced the Met Police had paid out £85,000.00 damages to 5 protesters, who had taken part in a protest at the Mexican Embassy back in 2006. All this will make useful background reading for those attending the Bindymedia film night on May 4, that will discuss the G20, policing and protests (http://bristol.indymedia.org/article/690253).
Is it any wonder people are angry and concerned about the actions of the police and the state? No surprise then that this Saturday's protest in Bristol against police brutality and state harassment may attract significant numbers (see http://www.bristol.indymedia.org/article/690284) read full story / add a comment
