The Bristol Cable


The Get Heard Bristol election night was a rammed and fiery event, attended by up to 400 people at the Malcolm X Centre on the 20th of April 2015.

Local people gave personal testimonies and asked the candidates for the Bristol West constituency challenging and well researched questions.

The event was co-organised by The Bristol Cable, Acorn Community Union, Bristol Somali Media Group, and Ujima Radio.
