The French Insurgency: what is the significance of the Gilets Jaunes?
London EC1M 6EL

With Stathis Kouvelakis, Reader in Political theory in the Department of French at Kings College, London.
The 'Yellow Vests' or 'Gilets Jaunes' are a movement of protest in France that since it started in November 2018 has operated outside the framework of political parties and trade-union organisation and has shaken the political establishment. It has brought together waged workers, the self-employed and other popular strata in a protest against the state and has highlighted the injustices and exploitation of French society. Surprisingly it has maintained high levels of popular support throughout months of confrontation with the state, in spite of escalating levels of police repression and it has succeeded in extracting concessions from the government. However, this movement appears as inherently contradictory. Some of its demands and its discourses seem to have elements of the programme of the far-right (nationalism, belief in conspiracy theories and anti-migrant feelings) as well as an emphasis on justice and redistribution of wealth associated with the left.

Nearest tube station Farringdon. 6.45pm (doors open 6.30). £3, concessions £2, tickets on door. Info 07435 844 130 or see our website

Happy 50 'Weatherman'
London N1 9DX.

From Rebellion To Extinction with Jeff Laster

The radical WEATHERMAN group (a.k.a. WEATHER UNDERGROUND) was created 50 years ago this year and for the next several years played a leading role in the radical left in the U.S. Their founding document called for a "white fighting force" to be allied with the "Black Liberation Movement" and other radical movements to achieve "the destruction of U.S. imperialism and form a classless communist world". With the help of the Housman's audience, Ex-Weatherman Jeff Laster will look at the lessons we can learn from both the Rise and the Fall of this legendary group. He will look at the reasons for its relevancy in 1969 and the reasons for its complete irrelevancy (extinction!) in 2019.

Women go Green for Peace

The theme of this year’s seminar will be Eco-Feminism and Pacifism, which addresses the pressing concerns of conflict on the environment and disproportionately on women’s lives.
