Hi Everyone,

 

Autumn has arrived and so it is time to finalise the plans for the Lambeth People’s Assembly on November 2nd and to start inviting as many people as possible. To do this we need your help.

 

If you haven’t already you need to JOIN THE YAHOO EMAIL GROUP to get on the discussion list, get all the info, and be able to contact everyone else. 

To join the email group go to  http://groups.yahoo.com/group/OrganisingLambethPeoplesAssembly/ click JOIN and complete the sign up.  You need a free account but you can sign in with Facebook or Google if you don’t already have a yahoo account. If you have any problems please reply to this email.

Once you are a member of the yahoo group you can then email all other members by emailing organisinglambethpeoplesassembly@yahoogroups.com. Please use it wisely.

 

Sub groups – update on Thursday

Hopefully you are already in your workshop groups and have been working out your plans for the day.

So far the workshop groups themes are (titles to be confirmed):

 

Defending the NHS

Attacks on Rights

Building Trade Unions

Welfare & Benefits

Education

Immigration

Gentrification & affordable housing

Democracy & representation

Anti-Racism

 

As well as a sub-group who are organising the opening and closing plenaries

 

Also of note are ideas around:

Culture & Entertainment events through the day

Online activism and publicity skills follow on workshops

Is a Youth Space possible?

International Solidarity

Open Space Session


But to make this a success you need to make all of this happen.

 

If you are in one of the working groups please try to make sure at least one person comes to the next meeting on Thursday to give everyone else an update.

 

If you would like to get involved in organising any of the above (or maybe something else perhaps?) please come on Thursday and meet with the rest of the relevant sub-group.

  

The NEXT MEETING is Thursday 19th September, 6:30pm at the Vida Walsh Centre. Please come and help us to take challenging austerity in Lambeth to the next level.

 

See you on Thursday!
