First ever Clapton CFC Esports social - April 11th

9th April 2019

This Thursday Clapton CFC (everyone's favourite antifascist London footie club) is running their first ever Esports Social. It's at ExFed (199 Eade Road,, N4 1DN) in London from 6:30 'till 10:30. We recon it's a fantastic move by the Tons to bring the antifascist, LGBT+ positive vibe and drive to Esports and heck who doesn't like to hang out and play games?

In their own words:-

“At the last members' meeting, a unanimous decision was taken for Clapton Community Football Club to expand into the realm of video games.
We're beginning by organising gaming socials for Clapton CFC members and non-members alike. Bring yourself, your mum, kids and your pals, whether they're gamers or not!

We'll have arcade machines, consoles and even PC games on offer. There might even be a small Tetris tournament. You can BYOB, there’s a cheap bar and stone-baked pizza next door too


  1. “Oh, but I'm not a gamer…”
    It doesn't matter! Come and hang out with the members, staff and players of CCFC, have a tinnie or juice, spectate and maybe get involved with a game – retro or new – that you’ll certainly have played at some point.
  2. 'What games we will be playing?”
    We have a load of them pre-installed so the choice will be huge. Anything you wish, really! Suggestions are definitely welcome.
  3. “I want to help organise this! Can I?”
    Amaaaazing! Please DM CCFC and we'll get you in touch with the mini committee organising the socials.
  4. “What should/can I bring?”
    Bring your own hardware if you want to (controllers, mice, keyboards, joysticks). If you have something cool to show off, bring banners, leaflets for your cause, anything!
  5. “Is this for kids only?”
    Absolutely not! This is for all ages! You'll be surprised how many older nerds there are!”

All in all looks like a great event and hopefully it'll encourage a series of similar events around the country why not? So if you're in London this Thursday, got your peripherals and banners packed and get down to Exfed. This is exactly the kind of stuff red and black gamers all over should be getting up to.


Got a similar event happening? Let us know!

Gaza Aid Direct | Mutual Aid

When discussing the on-going situation in Palestine we are often asked “What can I do?” and “Who would you suggest I give aid too?”. Our answer is Gaza Aid Direct, the organisers of which our members can vouch for and assure. “We're fundraising for those under assault in Rafah, so far we've sent 59 families […]

The player is instructed to deliver 20 CVs (job applications/resumes) into “submission boxes,” which are appropriately trashcans, scattered throughout a nearly deserted city, the only inhabitants being Scotty, the Centrelink desk clerk, and a giant floating Scott Morrison head. I’m not kidding.

Thatcher’s Tech Base | RBG

I’m old enough to remember the lingering effects of the Conservative governments of the 1980s and 1990s partly because the Labour governments that followed did very little to change or counter act that legacy. So I ate everything TTB was serving me.

Disarm The Base | Red And Black Gamers

Unlike games like Riot or Bloc by Bloc, this is not a game of molotovs, guns, and violence. This is a non-violent, stealthy affair where the aim isn't to overcome the security guards but avoid them and weave your way through the defences, tracking down fighter planes and disarming them.
