The politics around the upcoming election tell us that austerity and more of the same is the only option. But, in communities, workplaces, housing estates, schools and colleges, galleries, and on the streets groups, campaigns and unions are fighting the status quo and winning. From the London housing movement’s successes to the shutting down of an Israeli arms factory during the latest attack on Gaza, from newly unionised workplaces to young people inspired to challenge our political system in the classroom – we all have a lot to learn and be inspired by!

During the interactive evening you’ll have the chance to hear about how and why people are doing union organising; community organising; politicising art and culture; Direct Action; campus activism and more! There’ll be inspiring films and a chance to talk and share ideas and practical information too.
