About the prize draw: as much as possible we will avoid posting items, instead we’ll do local delivery and collection to keep environmental and financial costs down. Please bear this in mind if you’re from outside of the Bristol area.
BASE and Roses is a food distribution collective formed to tackle issues around food security in Bristol. We are delivering weekly, free food parcels to people in Bristol and distributing cooked meals to homeless people.Our initiative is based on principles of solidarity and mutual aid. We are not a charitable organisation. Anybody can self refer and request a food parcel if they need one; our distribution is not means tested.Our food distribution is run by volunteers with a small budget and is predominantly reliant on donations from food suppliers. We are aiming to get as many food donations as possible for the distribution, however to ensure our food parcels contain a substantial amount of food and a balanced selection, we are buying in extra food.We urgently need funds to pay fuel costs for drivers and to buy additional food for the parcels.
All strength to Brighton’s anarchist social centre, the Cowley Club! They’re currently raising money to get through the tough times. Please show your solidarity and give what you can to make sure this important autonomous space, part of the UK social centres network, continues to fly the flag and continue their awesome work. Keep at it Cowley crew!
Here is their callout for help and see links below.
“We’ve made it this far thanks to our tireless volunteers and the support of our community, but we need your help to make it through the next few months and keep The Cowley Club going until we can open up again! We’re crowdfunding just short of £5,000 to ensure we’re still here once we make it through lockdown and the pandemic, so we can get back to doing what we’ve been doing since 2003, and keep on getting better!
No matter how small a donation you make, everything helps keep us going to get through this. Please support The Cowley Club by donating at https://crowdfunder.cowley.club“
Please share widely across all your networks and with all your friends and comrades. Support your local anarchist infoshop through the tough times. We have so much liberating reading material and music that needs to get off those shelves! Here’s just a few examples of some of the awesome new stuff we got in during lockdown:
Moscow Death Brigade “Bad Accent Anthems” new album on vinyl and CD: Circle pit hip hop guaranteed to get you stomping!
The Road to Hell Is Paved with Good Intentions: COVID-19, Corbyn and ‘Crisis’
Text from the UK reflecting on anarchy, “democracy”, coronavirus, and responses to the pandemic…
We started to write this text last December, just after the general election in England, in response to the huge number of anarchists who voted…. then coronavirus hit. Struggling to make sense of the new context we are in, we wondered if our critique of “democracy” (and the surge of Labour voting anarchists) in the UK was appropriate. Some may read this text as an unsympathetic distraction from a global “crisis”. We hope our humble (but fiery) reflections will spark some much needed discussion. Now is the time for difficult questions….and as there will be no return to “normal”, we decided to publish it now.
Bust Card zine
From the intro: “We are ecological and anti authoritarian We stand for collective liberation and global revolution. We hold a vision for a better world, one which we believe we can achieve. We stand in international solidarity with struggles everywhere. We have to be intersectional in this fight. This system is not broken. It’s working exactly as it’s meant to. That is the problem”
This is a callout for support for our social centre. The cafe is our primary source of income for the community co-operative and now it is closed we will struggle to pay the bills.
Do you value autonomous spaces providing genuinely affordable, not for profit healthy food, skillsharing, meeting and events space and so much more?
Do you support non hierarchical organising and grassroots projects, working hard for a better world?
Do you believe in the need for inclusive, safer spaces?
Please support BASE social centre through difficult times. Our social centre has been so useful for so many people, groups and campaigns over the years and has contributed so much to radical politics in Bristol. Let’s help BASE continue this work. Please donate what you can either via the crowdfunder linked below or direct to BASE’s bank. Our bills are around £1000 for 3 months. Your support and solidarity is much appreciated. Please share this crowdfunder around your friends, family, comrades and contacts. Take good care and stay solid together.
