Kebele (Bristol) - 11th anniversary benefit party

From a time before Libcom existed, indeed before most of us used the internet, the place known as kebele came into being...

Raising the roof – 11th birthday & benefit party

It’s Kebele’s 11th anniversary, we now own the place outright, we’re revamping everything, and we’re even fixing the roof. So in true Kebele style, we are having a party – and you are all invited.

Friday 8 December, 10pm to very late.
The Black Swan, 438 Stapleton Rd, Bristol, BS5 6NR
5 quid on the door

Background info:
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, artivism, action, 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…

See for history and what’s on now.
Kebele, 14 Robertson Rd, Bristol, BS5 6JY
