Freedom Shop Birthday - 20 years old

On the 1st of May 2015, the Freedom Shop in Wellington turned 20! And on Saturday 9th May we will celebrate.

We think that lasting 20 years is no small achievement for an anarchist collective and we are celebrating this anniversary by having an exhibition and a day of events at the Thistle Hall, right across the road from where the shop started on 20 years ago in 1995.

9 May 2015, midday till midnight

Thistle Hall, corner Cuba and Arthur Streets, Wellington.

  • 12 noon: Opening of the exhibition, followed by food.
  • 1 pm: The Freedom Shop history, a discussion about the history of the shop and a chance for current and past members of the Collective to reminisce.
  • 3 pm: The future of radical publishing. Come and join a chat about how we can ensure radical books and literature will continue to be available.
  • 5 pm: What is anarchism? What does it mean to say you are an anarchist? What do we think anarchy is? Come along and join a discussion about anarchism. Food will be available around this time also.
  • 9 pm: Music, including Dead Vicious, Awkward Death and the Four Stars.
- All afternoon - zine-making and patch-making workshops.

- Food -  will be available after the opening and also after the 5pm discussion.

- The Exhibition, books, zines and music will be open from 12.

See you there!
