pans-labyrinth-400a03201

Spain, 1944. Officially, the Civil War has been over for five years, but a small group of rebels fights on unbroken in the northern mountains of Navarra. Dreamy 10-year-old Ofelia moves to Navarra with her delicate, pregnant mother Carmen, to become acquainted with her new stepfather, Captain Vidal, a Fascist officer under orders to rid the territory of rebels. Ofelia, who is fascinated by fairy tales, discovers an overgrown, tumbledown labyrinth behind the mill. In the heart of the labyrinth she meets an ancient faun who claims to know her true identity and her secret destiny. But first, she must complete three tasks before the moon grows full. And no one must know: not her ailing mother, or her new friend, Mercedes. Time is running out, for Ofelia and for the rebels. Both will have to battle hardship and cruelty in order to gain their freedom.


Queer Group Meeting Thu 18 dec 7.30pm

Posted in Uncategorized on December 13, 2008 by cHe0

Call out:

“We are having the stirrings of an anti-capitalist queer activist group that hopes to look at more than just identity politics. we are interested in meeting twice a month… once in south london and once north of the river.

Have been talking with a lot of folks lately about activism in general. how there´s an awful lot of fantastic queer folk in london who are active in politics and it wold be nice come together to collaborate on some political projects, create an affinity group for actions and work on inclusiveness in our circles. areas of focus could be race, anti-militarism, trans, deaths in custoday, prison abolition, no borders, pride next year, feminism, the list is endless.

So if a group was meeting regularly (every 2 weeks) we could plan some activism/solidarity/education.”
