This was posted to news, but this kind of thing is for our announcements forum, so here it is:

Bristle 21 - Environment Special Out Now!!

19:46 05 April 2006

Bristle goes ballistic about the nuclear option

Environment feature in issue 21 asks: how do we save the planet?

Yer ever-cuddly but barbed Bristle mag is back with a very mature issue

21, hot on the heels of the outstanding success of its book ‘Political

street expressions in Bristol & the south west – a photo archive

1998-2005’ (see,

although we’re yet to win the ‘snappiest title of the year’ prize for

that one!

Out timely special feature on the environment takes a reality check on

the nuclear option; blows hot about alternatives such as wind energy;

and gets chilly about the spoils of war. We also look at the options for

protesters in the mother of all battles – keeping the planet alive &

habitable for future generations. “Katrina, oil wars, melting ice-caps,

Jeremy Clarkson on TV, Bristol’s roads in Broadmead-expansion

gridlock…we are already living in the future we hoped would never

arrive. This may seem a utopian response. So is sending a pre-printed

postcard to your MP and hoping that will change the world.” (from

‘Conclusion to environment special’, Bristle 21, page 21).

Also in this issue, we interview funny-man Rob Newman, and Dick Lucas

from the Subhumans; mouth off about critical mass & pool closures;

ponder the dangers of debt, and life after Greenleaf books; get the

inside gen on a variety of cultural events; go back 700 years to revisit

some earlier rebellions in the west; remember a day of buying nothing;

encourage discussion and activist reality; plus the usual campaigns

news, reviews…and of course there’s yer usual hilarious selection of

Bristle typos, layout *censored*-ups & editorial mishaps. That’s Bristle for

yer – no big business backers to please here me dears!

An Apology – to all those local campaign groups we faithfully list on

our Contacts page. Evil fifth columnists put a gremlin in our production

cycle, resulting in a contacts list that is at least 2 years out of

date. If you wanna know who is doing what on the campaign front in

Bristol, check the links page on our website in the very near future.

A Request – if you like Bristle, come and get involved! We always need

fresh & eager, committed long-term, volunteers for our collective. If

you can write, read, edit, take photos, draw, sell, or even do DTP, we

wanna hear from you. Professional experience not needed…as you may have

gathered. We meet bi-weekly on Sundays at 5.30pm. Contact us at for details or check the Bristol Indymedia


Don’t waste paper – buy the mag! If you can read this you can go to the

‘Get’ page at and find your nearest outlet in

Bristol, Bath & the south west. Alternatively send us a cheque for £1.50

and we’ll post you one.
