Defending freedom of speech on Palestine

25 January at 2:00 pm4:00 pm
Friends’ Meeting House Manchester, 6 Mount Street
Manchester, M2 5NS
+ Google Map

All the Labour leadership candidates have signed up to the ten demands of the (unrepresentative) Board of Deputies of British Jews, threatening to turbo-charge the witch-hunt against people who speak out for Palestinian rights. The Tories have appointed John Mann as their 'antisemitism tsar', on a mission to attack the left, want to ban local authorities boycotting Israel, and plan to extend racist Prevent and anti-terror measures. None of this helps the genuine fight against antisemitism, which is on the rise globally - from Orban in Hungary to the US alt-right. Come and join the discussion about how socialists can fight for free speech on Palestine and oppose genuine antisemitism.

Insurgency around the world

8 February at 10:30 am12:30 pm
Birkbeck, Malet Street
London, WC1E 7HX United Kingdom

In more and more places, people are taking to the streets in massive numbers against state repression, imperialism and the hard right. It's vital that we learn about these movements to identify opportunities for solidarity and to draw implications for our own organising here in Britain. In the context of British imperialism, we also have to train our sights on the actions and interests of our own state. Speakers will discuss the anti-extradition movement in Hong Kong, the opposition to the imperialist coup in Bolivia and uprisings in Algeria, Iraq and Morocco.

Defending the right to strike

13 February at 7:00 pm9:00 pm
St Margaret’s House, Old Ford Road
London, E2 9PL

With a renewed and emboldened Tory government we have a fight on our hands. Already the government have announced an aggressive class war domestic agenda, aimed at further criminalisation of migrants and minorities, attacks on the left including the freedom to strike, and a rapid acceleration of privatisation in an already crippled NHS. But the new regime is also on shaky ground. Taking on the freedom to strike will mean an open confrontation with the trade union movement, which we will have to prepare for. The Tories evidently have no long term plan for managing Brexit and while Scotland and Ireland threaten to break up the UK. Come along to discuss and strategise with rs21 about the weeks and months ahead. Together, to prepare for a struggle against the shame there would have been in doing nothing.

Can the left beat the media?

Media bias is assumed by many, to be a major reason for the defeat of Corbyn’s Labour Party in the recent general election. At the same time, social media and other digital platforms are seen as valuable alternatives to oppose the power of the established legacy media. At this meeting we will look at disinformation, fake news and discuss whether media can be the basis of effective resistance and struggle. All are welcome.
