We’re getting excited about the Race, Privilege & Identity gathering this weekend!

Is Bristol ready for the stampede of visitors? We hope so and are looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones.

To give us courage, we invoke the power of Jayaben Desai, one of the principal leaders of the Grunwick strike that began in August 1976 and ended at the beginning of 1978.

We will be showingThe Great Grunwick Stike: A History 1976-1978 on the Saturday night of the gathering. The film presents an important history of the strike which was led mainly by Asian women workers and was supported by impressive solidarity actions throughout the UK.

The film also depicts the violent policing of the strike which can only resonate, in light of the G20 protests, with the worst of police brutality we are currently witnessing.
