Ethel MacDonald film at Cafe Crema

With Cafe Crema in New Cross due to close in the next month, this week may see one of your last chances to watch a film there. South London Solidariy Federation presents 'Ethel MacDonald- an anarchist's story', a drama-documentary telling the story of this remarkable woman who travelled to Spain during the civil war where she reported on Barcelona's widely-heard anarchist radio station. In the crackdown following the events of May 1937 she also helped libertarians wanted by the Stalinist secret police escape and smuggled letters and food into prison. Through her activities in helping anarchists escape Spain, she became renowned in the British press as the 'Scots Scarlet Pimpernel'.

The film is on Wednesday 20th February 2008 at 7.30 food, 8.00pm for film. Only £4 including veggie food at Café Crema 306 New Cross Rd SE14.
