Hi folks. Can you believe the weather? In this first June installation, we cover a jolly folk dance day that happened in Forest Fields on perhaps the only rainy weekend of last month. Nevertheless, lots of people, music and dance, with a tastefully anti-authoritarian undercurrent.
Folk like this
We're also hanging out at the occupied JB Spray factory building, where we talk about squatting and the dangers of racist party the BNP's election campaigning. And we go 'daan sarf' to meet some rather motivated city folk, who claim to be in the process of setting up no fewer than eleven workers' co-ops one one estate!
Listen to all that, and more to come so very soon. Love from the Riseup! crew.
