Includes a screening of 18-minute documentary The Law Breakers (1973).
Mac will begin by giving a brief personal/political history of what motivated him to get involved. He will be covering the squatting campaign that took place between 1972-1974 in Ashley Road Bristol, and direct action taken like the occupation of The South West Electricity Board showrooms (SWEB,) for example.
The BBC West documentary will feature previously homeless single parent families, a support meeting by ‘Bristol Squatters’ Association,’ and an interview with the then council housing chief Bill Graves.
