Attached are recording of 4 sessions of the Sheffield Free School, which was held on 15th October 2011 at CADS in Sheffield.

Sorry that the session on cuts isn't complete, the batteries ran out in the recorder.

Linking to MP3 files on remote servers appears to be broken so pleace get the audio from here:
Following is the text that was used to advertise the sessions:


In these days of cuts, greed and privatisation we need to be wary of those whose desire to make money means they are willing to screw us over in the chase for every last penny. A representative of Industrial Workers of the World (or the IWW, a worldwide industrial union that represents all kinds of workers) will be along to help you know your rights and how to hold onto them.


Find out how groups in Sheffield are actively challenging the absurd abundance of empty buildings by reclaiming and redefining so-called private property. Squatting makes use of unused buildings to meet real needs such as for a home or a social space. Come along and discuss why it’s necessary and how you can you get involved.


Join guest speakers from UK Uncut, the Anarchist Federation, and Sheffield Save our Surestart, to chat about the current state of capitalism, and how to respond to its latest crisis and the cuts being imposed on us.


As part of the ongoing project to set up a permanent social centre in Sheffield, and to round off a packed day, we’ll come together to discuss what we can learn from the history of autonomous social centres both here and abroad, as well as hearing about what other groups such as LaDIYfest and the TAA collective are organising in the near future. Ultimately, we’ll seek to galvanise our collective enthusiasm for creating spaces like this one and talk about how we can make a permanent version a reality.
