The rally aims to raise local awareness of the labour situation, to promote and support workers’ rights on a regional and global level, and to fight against inequality, oppression and fascism.
This year marks the 200th anniversary of the Tolpuddle Martyrs and the working class struggle. Events will culminate on the 21st of July with a massive march, which will attract participants from as far afield as Brighton, Bognor, Portsmouth, Thames Valley, Swindon, Bath, Bristol and the Midlands.
“Bloc 2013” has the support of organisations such as The Anarchist Federation (AFED), which was founded 25-years-ago and is made up of anarchist groups in Britain, and the Solidarity Federation (SolFed), created in March 1994.
This federation brings together groups and individuals from England, Scotland and Wales.
Members of this syndicalist group support the working class both in and out of the workplace, and fight to defend the culture of resistance.
The festival will also feature a camping area, referred to as the “crash space”, with camping spaces allocated on a first come, first served basis.
Date: 19th– 21st July. Time: 1:00 pm – 7:00 pm. Place: Tolpuddle Martyrs Museum.
