INVERNESS FILM FESTIVAL

Saturday 11th February saw, possibly, the first ever event by highland anarchists in Inverness. The two current members of the Anarchist Federation living in the area put on a mini film festival showing ‘Anarchism in America’ – for a broad overvue,  ‘The Ethel MacDonald Story’ – for a scottish connection, and ‘The Pipe’ – as an example of state & multicorporate abuse in the here and now. The event was attended by around 20 people, mostly from Inverness and the surrounding area, but other Afed and like minded folk had travelled to support the day from Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Stirling. The films were interspersed with breaks allowing discussion and debate on issues raised in the features, and thoughts on anarchism in general. All in all it was felt to be an inspiring day and it is hoped people will join together to increase the anarchist presence in the highlands. More events are being planned – contact inverness.af@gmail.com
