Yep, your lovely bristle editorial collective, beavering away in our
bomb-proof bunker beneath the Kebele building, have gone all
generous, and will give to the winner of this sinister competition a
years free sub (4 issues); a bag of goodies from our extensive
political collection; and print the winning submission in the next issue.
So what's the story?
That's up to you. In line with our Direct Action special
feature, we want you to write a fictional (!) 500 word press
release/article, that you would send to Indymedia's newswire,
based on the action you have taken outlined in the scenario
below. Explain what you've done and why (practice &
theory). The winning entry will be the one the Collective
considers the most likely to have succeeded. You'll loose
marks if you got nicked, or if we can't make sense of what
you've written. A London A-Z may help, or use
www.streetmap.co.uk/. Get those fantasies written down now!

The scenario!
Remember Bush's London visit last November, and the big
Thursday demo which achieved absolutely nothing? Well that
evening Bush (and his armoured cavalcade) went to a banquet at
the US Ambassador's residence inside Regents Park. Nearest
tube was Baker St. A bunch of us went too. The
Ambassador's pad could be approached by road from 3
directions – from Hanover Gate, or from north or south along
the Outer Circle. The residence was just inside the park, close to
the junction of these roads (a stones throw from the Central
London Mosque!). Only a few cops were at the tube station, as
we walked north along the Outer Circle there were none to be
seen until you were very close to the aforementioned road
junction, where there loads - armed, riot and yellow jackets. The
Outer Circle approaching the junction was dark, with little
streetlighting, and trees, bushes & hedges on each side. There
was a 6ft chain-link fence on the park side of the road.
Unfortunately, in trying to establish which direction Bush would
come from, we were seen and escorted under armed guard into a
pen. There were only 5 other protesters there. You however have
the benefit of hindsight, you know Bush will be coming along the
dark Outer Circle travelling north from Baker St. Your affinity
group is crouching unseen in the dark, 200m from the police
blockade at the aforementioned road junction. Now go to work!

To enter
Send your submission by email to bristlemag@yahoo.co.uk or by
post to Bristle, box 25, Greenleaf Books, 82 Colston St, Bristol,
BS1 5BB, by 18 June 2004. We wont print the winners real name
& address unless you want us to, but you'll have to give us a
contact so we can get your prize to you!"

Note our present email address above, as the permanent one is
off-line whilst the bristle website is being restructured. Cheers.
