Hitting the streets of Whitechapel from December 7th onwards!! Our first issue will be launched at 11am on Bricklane, the Bethnal Green Road end, with our very own stall! It is A3 in size, or one big sheet of A2 folded to be more precise, printed in Black and White on recycled paper by our local printers Aldgate Press.
Middle pages include articles on rising food prices/price reduction scheme, housing/squatting in local area, police bullying of “illegal” market traders, the banality of signing on and it’s media generated stigma, BNP watch keeping an eye on the local fascists, credit crunch/canceling of christmas, repression of anti-fur campaign on the lane, a little bit of local history on the food riots of 1768, the forthcoming Olympics and the general increase of gentrification we experience in Whitechapel on a day to day basis.
The Back Page includes the film listings for our Sunday Cinema Cafe as well as our Radical History Pub Crawl happening on Saturday 31st January at 5pm. Beginning in Bethnal Green, join us for the experience of retracing the local history from the Krays, fighting fascists, Jack the Ripper, Siege of Sidney Street, Itchycoo park to the Jubilee Street Club, and support traditional local boozers!!
The Free Sheet will also be available from L.A.R.C (London Action Resource Centre), 62 Fieldgate Street Whitechapel E1 1ES, and Freedom Press Bookshop, 84b Angel Alley Whitechapel – which has also recently just moved downstairs so check it out!!
We will be on Bricklane every Sunday handing it out, roughly at the Bethnal Green Road end, and it will be launched SUNDAY 7TH DECEMBER with our own stall from 11am. So come down for the launch. Also on the 7th we will be showing a double bill of films, a local special with “The Siege Of Sidney Street” and “The Elephant Man” from 2pm onwards at L.A.R.C.
Apologies to everyone who asked for PDF’s of the launch free sheet, as yet this technology is slightly out of our hands, but if you would like hard copies of the new Free Sheet then please send a S.A.E (With postage on please!) to WAG c/o L.A.R.C (London Action Resource Centre) 62 Fieldgate Street, Whitechapel, London, E1 1ES.
