The Bristol Cable present: Chav Solidarity with author D Hunter
Monday 9 September, 2019 @ 18:30 - 21:00£3 for non-members
The Bristol Cable welcomes author D Hunter to present his book “Chav Solidarity” – “part autobiography, part meditation on trauma, class and identity, part one finger salute into the face of respectability politics, but mostly an articulation of the contradictory heart of Chavvy sh*t heads across the U.K”.
Hunter will read excerpts from the book, as well as discussing it’s origins and surrounding issues. This will be followed by a question and answer session and open discussion regarding the issues raised in the book.
Hunter uses his experiences as child sex worker, teenage crack addict, violent thug and community activist to examine the ways in which our classed experiences shape the ways in which we think and do our politics.
Content Warning: Throughout the book there are references to sexual violence, racism (both interpersonal and institutional), gendered violence (physical, psychological and verbal), various forms of physical violence, suicide, drug usage, transphobia, murder, and police brutality. The subjects discussed in this event may reflect the book content.
Free/donation tickets for members and £3 for non-members – available here.
