Alternative Bristol (UK)

It’s Goodbye From Us! Now – Who’d Like To Take Over A Media Platform?

The small collective behind the Alternative Bristol website & social media, for the last 4 years, is ceasing operations. Rather than just shut it all down, we’d like to offer it up to a new collective to take it over and run it as they see fit. Why are we stopping now? It’s a simple combination of work, life, family, health and other projects…

Hungry for Power / Are we at War?

April’s inflation rate hit 9%, and is predicted to go over 10% in coming months – just one of many crisis afflicting ordinary people in the UK and around the world, from wars to famine to poverty to disease to the out of control climate crisis to the ongoing attacks on us by the ruling elites. The spetcre of a global hangs over us too. Perhaps rarely…

Another typical Bristol weekender! Festivals, politics, rides, parties, films, protests, fairs…

Just a typical Bristol weekend…this is why people want to come to the fine city of Bristol – for it’s culture, history, nightlife, politics & protests, green spaces, and the sense of being just a bit more laidback than other large urban conurbations. True or false? No city is perfect (yet), and Bristol has many problems too – which is what we…

Updated: ‘Stuff The Jubilee’ sentiment grows as Royal privilege laid bare

Update 18.5.22: The 3-day, multi-venue weekender under the banner of ‘Fuck The Jubilee’, essentially a punk anti-Jubilee festival, has made it into the local mainstream media. Whether for clickbait reasons, or because even they can’t ignore the anti-jubilee sentiment, who knows? An initial article in the Bristol Post has now been followed up by…

‘Stuff The Jubilee’ sentiment grows as Royal privilege laid bare

Another bad week for the Royal family as the State opening of Parliament, and Prince Charles’s reading of the Queen’s speech, generated huge criticism – for both it’s pro-ruling class content, and the absurd antiquated ceremonial format & display of wealth…in the midst of a major economic crisis causing misery across the country. With pervert…

Bristol Referendum 5th May – Dump The Mayor: No More Rees’s Nor Ferguson’s!

We’ll keep this short and sweet: Dump The Mayor. Now. No More Rees’s Nor Ferguson’s. Power Corrupts. Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely. Much has been said & written on this Mayoral referendum by the chattering class & their media outlets. But essentially there are two positions: First up, the business class, along with those favoured by Mayor…

Mayday! Mayday! With a World in Chaos – Time to Reunite the Red and the Green

In the midst of a world in chaos and upheaval, MayDay in Bristol was a dismal affair.

But your bills and overall cost of living has – a lot, and a lot more than any increases to your income. The Wessex Water bill for 2022/3, seen in our feature image, for a typical Bristol terraced house, shows…

Connecting the dots on Ukraine, War and Climate Chaos

We seem to be in the midst of a wave of crisis; Brexit then Ukraine. Following in their wake; the climate crisis. Yet, when you connect the dots really there is one giant crisis, all interlinked, all interdependent. Let’s break it down; What was Brexit? On the surface about the European Union and immigration; but in fact Brexit was about power. Powerful…

The demoralising senselessness of war, it’s causes and consequences

“Understanding how utterly senseless war is can overwhelm the soul of anyone who’s not fully cybernetically desensitized. It is a fallacy of positivism that the bitter flesh of hardship must contain the seed of a lesson. Alas, almost all suffering is senseless. It exists for no reason or, at most, as a necessary by product of the same ruthless profit…

A Night of Solidarity with the People of Myanmar – Resisting a Military Coup for 13 Months

What would you do? After 10 years of increasing freedoms & moves towards democracy, following decades of military governments/dictatorship that arrived after liberation from British colonial rule, you participate in a fairly free General Election, and elect with approx 80% of the vote a party that has opposed the military for so long (when it wasn’t…
