Bristol First Of May Group | 27.04.2012 16:55

What is going to be going on in Bristol for the week of MayDay!
featured image
Bristol will be revolting!

This April a group of anarchists, leftists, trade unionists, students, workers and rebels came together. Their aim is to put May Day back on the map in Bristol. The result is a diverse range of events representing many struggles, or as we see it many facets of the same struggle; against oppression for a free and just society.  We're looking for people not just to come a long but to get involved in shaping how the week turns out as we head towards the big day of action on may 5th.
