South Wales is on Fire!!

April 4, 2014 by cosmoakacitizensmith


Last weekend was great. Did shows in London and Cambridge, with a cheeky Palestine presentation tucked in on Saturday at Freedom Books. (Nice one for sending back my harmonica and stand, folks. it’s great to know I can be a lunched out twat after 25 years on the road).

So many thanks to all who came down to play and support at LARC on Friday and Cambridge on Sunday. All those  interested in keeping up to date with things Anarcho Folk can check in on this page here.  Many thanks for D for coming along and help with the talk at Freedom. It was also great to have someone to have chats with during the long stretches of Megabus! And mega thanks to Pete and Jill 🙂

In the meantime, back home now, and what is going on? The whole of south Wales is on fire! We have Boycott Workfare pickets in Cardiff and Swansea this weekend. There is also an Antifa convergence in Swansea on Saturday which is going ahead despite the police cancelling the planned White Pride demo (ugh!). There are daily Pro Choice pickets outside the abortion clinic in St Mary Street in Cardiff, thanks to religious nuts 40 Days For LIfe harassing women using the service there. And finally there is a march against the bedroom tax, an animal rights demo and a Miners’ Commemoration event in Cardiff on Saturday…Phew! Have I missed anything out?

Music-wise, there is a gig this Sunday for prisoner support at the Red and Black Umbrella. And I’ll be supporting David Rovics and Eirlys Rhiannon this Thursday at 10 Feet Tall, a No NATO Newport fundraiser.

It’s great to see so much going on. What’s happening where you are?
