Personal Stories: an interview with local activist Nick Smith part 1

Helen Graham interviewed me as part of our project to collect and document the stories of local activists.  The interview took place on the (very wet) evening of 15th March 2012 in the York Arms pub.  The full interview came to nearly 2 hours long, so I have edited it down into smaller installments which will be posted here over the next few weeks and months.

This is part one, where I discuss how I became interested in politics as a teenager.  Includes my thoughts on how my hometown (Bedworth, Warwickshire), music, my A-level history teacher and the Socialist Workers Party influenced my developing political, moral and ethical values from socialism to pacifism, vegetarianism and anarchism.
