(en) Britain, Freedom* November 2011 - NEW RADICAL BOOKSHOP IN BRISTOL

Date Fri, 16 Dec 2011 17:19:28 +0200

A new radical bookshop opens its doors on 26th November. The Hydra is a community bookshop, coffee shop and meeting place based at 34 Old Market – central Bristol. As well as selling some of the best coffee and cake in the city, Hydra stocks ‘radical‘ literature on a wide range of issues; politics, history, feminism, animal rights, environmentalism, that may be difficult to track down in high-street bookshops (if you can find one!). ---- Opening on Saturday 26th of November 2011 --- Opening Times: 8am till 6pm Tuesday to Friday 12pm till 6pm Saturday ---- Location: Hydra Books 34 Old Market Bristol BS2 0EZ ---- The bookshop provides an outlet for independent non commercial publishers and authors to make their books and ideas accessible to the wider community. Run by local people as a workers co-operative, the shop grew out of the Bristol Radical History group and similar networks across the city.

The shop will be open 8:00 till 6:00 Tuesday to Friday and 12:00 till 6:00 Saturday. The Hydra is a space for exchanging ideas as well as finding books.

To celebrate the launch on Saturday 26th November there is a series of free talks by special guests at the shop. At 3pm there is a talk by prominent British Anarchist Ian Bone on ’1919 – year of revolution’ where he will discuss revolutionaries Maria Spiridonova, Jaroslav Hasek, Gabriel D’Annunzio,Percy Fisher,Simon Radowitzgy, Gustav Landauer and Max Holz.

On Sunday, 27th November at 3pm Steve Higginson is doing a talk called the “Rhythms That Carry” about the city of Liverpool in 1911, a city on the edge, under martial law with a gunboat moored on the Mersey when Dockers, seafarers, and transport workers were on general strike. To find out more come to this fascinating talk. On Sunday evening Sheila Coleman from the Hillsborough Justice Campaign discusses the Hillsborough disaster and the battle for information on why it happened and the recent debate in the House of Commons. She does not think that the result of the debate was a victory for either truth or justice. Rather she believes that a potentially dangerous precedent was set when the government agreed to hand over documents to the Hillsborough ‘Independent’ Panel.

So please come along and check out some great talks, great books and a propa cup of coffee.
