“Real change never happens except as a result of pressure from below” – new communications, training and coordination initiative holds launch event at legendary socialist venue in Liverpool next week
A new grassroots initiative will launch next Monday evening at the legendary Casa socialist club in Liverpool with an array of major speakers and musical and artistic guests.
The new network says that it is:
…a grassroots alliance, seeking to reunite the Left around the principles that informed the 2017-2019 Labour Party manifesto. We are creating a communication and coordination network, providing training, resources, event speakers and more
About the need for its formation, the group states:
The current political landscape offers a limited choice of political parties, with almost identical policies.
Real change never happens except as a result of pressure from below. Our history shows us that politics can be done differently.
Speakers at the event include world-renowned film director Ken Loach, JVL’s Naomi Wimborne-Idrissi, former ANC MP Andrew Feinstein, the fiery Bakers’ union president Ian Hodson and others. Ian Prowse, Bleeding hearts and Tayo Aluko will perform as special guests. Local legend Audrey White, the terror of Keir Starmer, will chair.
The event runs from 5pm on Monday 9 October at the Casa on Hope Street. Admission is free and tickets can be reserved here.
