April 2008 Days of Action in Bristol

Blurb from youtube post The 11th & 12 of April 2008 were international days of action in defence of squats and autonomous spaces (see http://april2008.squat.net ). In Bristol enraged creatives took a building in the centre of town turned it into an exibition and music space and did a carnival parade to contest the impending grip of corporate interests on our city – the luxury flats, displacement of social housing, eviction of squats, closure of clubs and shopping centre expansion to name but a few elements. This film was shot on a normal digital stills camera set to video mode – I hope it gives a flavour of what went on.”
