    That sounds good, ended up walking miles last year to a pub. Is it a Weatherspoons?

    You going Pickman's?

    What was wrong with the one directly opposite the venue?

    As a long-time resident of West Green, I think I've been in it about twice :)

    T Chances has a charm all its own though, should be a good night there.

    Nearest Spoons is at Turnpike Lane, there's also the significantly classier Salisbury on Green Lanes.

    I agree it isn’t gastro-pub enough for some tastes but given it’s a minute walk away it wins for convenience.

    Seriously though, i do like a DIY film
    Room P5
    Main Building - Ground Floor

    12.30 - 1.15pm
    Spiridinova - Armed Love (Film)
    The untold story of Maria Spiridonova - an assassin at 18, 11 years in a Siberian labour camp but emerged as the leader of the Left Socialist Revolutionaries locked in a bitter war with the Bolsheviks culminating in the armed insurrection of July 6th 1918.
    A film directed by Murray Healy and enacted by some London anarchists determined to restore Maria as one of great revolutionaries of all time. 45 min.

    Due to some late additions in the cabaret room This is now going to start at 12. You'll kick yourselves if you miss the beginning.

    I'm not much of a pub goer, though I am also a long time resident of West Green (do I know you, I wonder?).

    As I came home on the bus this evening, I noticed that the Green Gate pub at the Turnpike Lane end of West Green Road has a couple of posters for the Anarchist Bookfair in the window, so maybe they're hoping to be the venue of choice this year.

    We should arrange to fail to meet up and maintain the mystery :)

    The Green Gate? What could possibly...

    (I still miss the Silver Lady. And the Queens Head)

    I've got stuff to do this afternoon, so I can't make the actual Bookfair, but if someone wants to to nominate a pub or other venue for a later meet-up, I might just make that (not the crusty punk do at T-Chances on the High Road though...)

    the Maria Spiridinova film is great. She is a legend... The Lenin quotes they dug out for it are jawdropping, particularly the bit justifying dictatorship.
    Some great casting too!
    will be online soon supposedly.

    i like this anarcho-birdwatching thing :D
    not sure what radical examples birds set...shitting on statues? Freegan diet? Squatting trees?

    What happened? I heard that a woman was attacked by a bunch of trans-activists.

    At least one well known activist has gone very terf to the point of outright hostility to any use of terms like cis. Don't know the details but they were in the middle of it when i left

    Thanks. I believe it got physical and the woman was physically attacked.
