Or worser resolution as orginally posted here:
Some kind soul has uploaded the Hackney Anarchy Week film to Youtube. You might want to view it as “full screen” though, as it’s slightly low resolution.
The film includes:
- Alternative TV
- Stewart Home
- Anarchist Football
- Mr Social Control
- Small Press Book Fair
- Class War
- Reclaim the Streets & Critical Mass
- McDonalds Picket in support of the McLibel Campaign
- The Association of Autonomous Astronauts
- Punx Picnic
- Ken Loach at the Rio – Interview
and a host of others. The film necessarily focuses on the more visual and social aspects of the festival (demos, gigs, performances etc) rather than the meetings and discussions.
It was shot throughout the festival and then shown as a rough cut on the last night in the small theatre above the Samuel Pepys pub (next door to the Hackney Empire). A VHS video was available for sale shortly after the festival had finished.
It’s good to see a number of familiar faces appear, many of whom are still active in 2013 and a couple of whom have sadly passed away over the last 17 years.
Other HAW material on this site:
- The initial programme. (Which also included the article Hackney’s Anarchic Nineties and the original version of our Timeline).
- The final programme.
- Reviews of and responses to the festival.
“I’m never being a referee again”
I have only ref’d once since, at the Whitechapel Anarchist Group’s fair a few years back, I relearned my lesson!
you mean no one has trusted you since!
got to say this was one of the highlights of my political adventures…and organising the footy tournament AND winning it (without cheating) ranks even higher!
