We will be ending the year with two final events to mark the end of 2015:
CANDYMAN AT FRUITVALE FILM CLUB
Sunday 27th December, 3pm at The Field, 385 New Cross Road, London SE14 5HD
Fruitvale Film Club presents CandyMan – made in 1992, it is about the ghost of a lynched Black man who takes revenge on anyone who calls him by his name. Join us in (re)discovering the film in a friendly atmosphere.
BRIXTON PRISON DEMO: MAKE SOME NOISE
Friday 31st December, 6pm
– 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.
In North London there will be a demo at 8pm Pentonville Prison and 9.30pm at Holloway Prison https://www.facebook.com/events/483674028483728/
Hope to see you there!
