'March that Shook Blair' book tour

Tue, 26/02/2013 - 19:30
Town/City: 
Peterborough

'March that Shook Blair' book tour by Ian Sinclair.
According to polling, over 1¼ million people took part in Britain's biggest-ever political protest: the 15 February 2003 anti-war march in London against the invasion of Iraq. Nonetheless, here in the UK there is a widespread feeling - among both activists and the general public - that the demonstration was an “absolute failure” (UK Uncut activist, 2011), and that it had no impact on the Government. Based on over 120 original interviews, “The March that Shook Blair” explodes these myths.

PACIFISM AND ANARCHISM

Tue, 08/01/2013 - 19:00
Town/City: 
LONDON

The London Pacifism and Nonviolence Discussion Group will continue to grapple
with the subject of PACIFISM AND ANARCHISM at its January meeting.

Anarchism has negative connotations for some pacifists, and pacifism is
similarly seen as too negative a worldview by some anarchists - but isn't
there really a great overlap of perspectives and of modes of action?

Come and join this discussion - whatever your perspective!

The group meets at the same time and place on the second Tuesday every month;
meetings are open to anyone interested in pacifism and nonviolence.
