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.

Henry Palmer grew up in the ward of Easton between 1998-2010. Back then, the European Commission classed it one of the most deprived wards in the south west of England. When returning to Bristol in 2016, however, Henry was shocked to hear his old area being described as 'up-and-coming'. Exploring why and what this meant led him to write a book on the gentrification of Bristol. The book explores its financial and cultural consequences, points to real culprits deserving of our focus, and puts forth solutions in the form of Central government policy change and the need for understanding.

In the decade leading up to the 2008 financial crisis, booming banks, rising house prices and cheap consumer goods propped up living standards in the rich world. Thirty years of rocketing debt and financial wizardry had masked the deep underlying fragility of finance-led growth, and in 2008 we were forced to pay up. The decade since has witnessed all kinds of morbid symptoms, as all around the rich world, wages and productivity are stagnant, inequality is rising, and ecological systems are collapsing. Stolen is a history of finance-led growth and a guide as to how we might escape it. We’ve sat back as financial capitalism has stolen our economies, our environment and even the future itself. Now, we have an opportunity to change course. What happens next is up to us.
