For 11 years Kebele has provided a self organised space for radical politics in Easton, Bristol. From squatted beginnings and resisted eviction to fully fledged housing co-op and volunteer-run anarchist social centre, it’s a long story with plenty of ups and downs, gigs, meetings, parties and cafes along the way. Sometimes it’s really hard work, but there’s so much to learn from organising collectively without leaders and sustaining a street level community project.
It’s inspiring to see our principles still intact and at the heart of all Kebele does: equality, inclusion, shared responsibility, co-operation, solidarity, not for profit, direct action… These are more than empty, lifeless buzzwords. Kebele aims to be a reflection of the world we want to see in our everyday actions and organising; a living, working example of what we’re told is not possible…
