This ten day festival in the borough was inspired by the London-wide “Anarchy In the UK” festival of 1994. It commenced exactly 15 years ago to the day.
HAW was the culmination of six months of a small crew holding at least weekly meetings, originally held in a squatted social centre around Newington Green, and then HQ was set up in a squatted block on the corner of Kingsland High Street and Princess May Road. Contacts were pooled, favours were called in.
The main programme was a massive foldout thing (click on the images for bigger versions):
The inner pages of the programme included a Hackney Timeline and other material which will appear here shortly.
There was also a Hackney Anarchy Week film – does anyone fancy getting that up on Youtube?
