BRIXTON PRISON DEMO: MAKE SOME NOISE

Friday 31st December, 6pm
HMP Brixton

HOSTED BY:
– London Campaign Against Police Violence
– Defend the Right to Protest
– NUS Black Students
– Black Dissidents
– Community Action on Prison Expansion

Noise demos outside of prisons are a continuing tradition across the world. A way of expressing solidarity for people imprisoned during the New Year, remembering those held captive by the state. A noise demo breaks the isolation and alienation of the cells our enemies create, but it does not have to stop at that. It is time to imagine a world without incarceration, without detention, without racism and injustice.

The proportion of people of African-Caribbean and African descent incarcerated here is almost seven times greater to their share of the population. In the United States, the proportion of black prisoners to population is about four times greater.

Hope to see you there!

Date: Sunday 29th November, 3pm
Location: The Field, 385 New Cross Road, London SE14 5HD

LCAPSV hosts a monthly free film screening at “The Field” in New Cross, to provide a space where it is possible to enjoy an interesting movie but also to share and discuss experiences of violence, objectification, oppression and harassment. This could include intrusions such as constant stop and search, or physical violence, or the everyday stress of being made to feel you somehow have to account for yourself and your experiences of racism.

That’s it!

 

Our new monthly event: Fruitvale Film Club @ The Field, 385 Queens Road, New Cross Gate

ffc

Date: Sunday 25th October
Time: 3pm
Location: The Field, 385 Queens Road, New Cross Gate, London SE14 5HD
Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/510175549149361/

We are putting on a monthly free film screening at “The Field” in New Cross, to provide a space where it is possible to share and discuss experiences of police and state brutality. This could include mental harassment through – for example – constant stop and search, or physical violence.

Anyone and everyone is welcome at this event.

This month, to kick off, we will be showing Fruitvale Station which depicts in moving and shocking detail, the last day on the planet of Oscar Grant (played by Wire star Michael B. Jordan), a 22-year-old son, friend, partner and father of one little girl, who was shot dead, unarmed, by subway police at Fruitvale Station in Oakland, California in the early hours of New Year’s Day 2009.

F.F.C. takes place at “The Field” in New Cross on the last Sunday of every month at 3pm and will last a few hours.
