Join Bristol & District Hazards Group to mark International Workers Memorial Day

International Workers’ Memorial Day is an annual trade union commemoration of those that have lost their lives at or as a result of work. It is marked on 28th April each year and special events to remember the fallen take place around the world, including in Bristol. This year we are hosting a public meeting to reflect on the relationship between business, the state and the labour movement. We have guest speakers talking about the blacklisting of trade union safety reps and the threat to the labour movement from state surveillance and infiltration.

More information can be obtained from:

A flyer for the meeting can be downloaded from here Behave Yourselfs!

Fidel – The Untold Story

Fidel the untold story - cover

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017
6:30pm – 8:45pm

Fidel Castro is no longer with us.
For Donald Trump, some Cuban-Americans in Miami, and some of the British media this was a cause for a grotesque celebration. But millions of ordinary Cubans, and tens of millions throughout Latin America, Africa and beyond, mourned the loss of one of the greatest and most inspiring political leaders of the 20th century.
Come join us at this film showing to learn about and celebrate his life, and to hear how we intend to complete his legacy by achieving truly normal relations between Britain and Cuba.

Old Council Chamber, 1st Floor,
Wills Memorial Building,
Queens Road, BS8 1JR

Organised by Bristol and Bath group of the Cuba Solidarity Campaign with thanks to Bristol University.
