The Future of Social Housing in an age of Global Capital
London

With Anna Minton. The provision of social housing in the UK has declined dramatically in the last twenty years. This is part of a global phenomenon in which neoliberal urban policies fuelled by quantative easing have led to social cleansing of cities, a crisis in the provision of affordable housing and a rise in homelessness. Anna Minton author of 'Ground Control' and ‘Big Capital’ is a Reader in the School of Architecture, Computing and Engineering at UEL. She will talk about the crisis of social housing in the context of the impact of globally mobile capital on urban populations worldwide and the policies that are necessary to provide affordable urban housing.
Nearest tube station Farringdon. 6.45pm (doors open 6.30).

London Pacifism and Nonviolence Discussion Group.
London

You don’t have to be a committed pacifist or nonviolentist to join in – meetings are open to anyone interested.
Events usually revolve around a particular topic chosen by participants at an earlier meeting. Anyone taking part can suggest topics for future meetings.

Tuesday 10 July the topic will be PACIFISM AND BORDERS.

In August and September this year, we'll be having a summer break again -
though no doubt pursuing our quest for "the correct line" on pacifism and
nonviolence in other ways...

When we return, on Tuesday 9 October, we'll be revisiting the subject of
NONVIOLENCE AND TAKING SIDES.

If you have ideas of topics you'd like to see discussed in future months, bring your suggestions to one of the monthly meetings, or send them in (e-mail SecondTuesday@groupmail.com).
