The Candidate: Jeremy Corbyn's Improbable Path to Power - Alex Nunns.

All the many books from which selected quotes are featured here were read to highlight relevant information for activists in their varied struggles to obtain social justice, equality and a better world. None were read for pleasure.  This book, about how the collective ‘anti-austerity’ movement came to find an unlikely home in our major opposition party, through the unlikely character of Jeremy Corbyn, is however, a pure pleasure to read.  I hope these quotes inspire you to get a copy for…See More

Naomi Klein and Jeremy Corbyn Discuss How to Get the World We Want

 Naomi Klein: I’m Naomi Klein, reporting for The Intercept, and I’m here in London at the Houses of Parliament with Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the Labour Party, three weeks after the Labour Party in an historic election won many, many more seats than anybody predicted – except for some of the people in this room, who saw it coming. And it’s just an enormous pleasure to be here with Jeremy and to talk about the importance of a forward-looking, bold agenda to do battle with the right. Hi,…See More

Why Capitalism is Just Shitbag Science - Holly Wood PhD

Capitalism is very simple. Capitalism as an economic system is essentially defined as the process of private expropriation of public wealth. Technically, the Earth is every creature’s inheritance but we in our late modern wisdom have conceded that only a select handful of people will get to profit from its resources while the rest are forced by either gunpoint or starvation to serve them forever or die.But of course, ironically, defining capitalism for what it is has you thinking me perfectly…See More

Despite this, a dramatic increase in the number of people affected is planned for October.The government’s ‘test and learn’ approach can’t end up…See More

Neoliberalism – the ideology at the root of all our problems - George Monbiot

Imagine if the people of the Soviet Union had never heard of communism. The ideology that dominates our lives has, for most of us, no name. Mention it in conversation and you’ll be rewarded with a shrug. Even if your listeners have heard the term before, they will struggle to define it. Neoliberalism: do you know what it is?Its…See More

How the Anglo World Lost Its Way (While the World Didn’t) - Umair Haque

Two decades or so, ago economists bemoaned Sub Saharan Africa. The world was making great strides against poverty, illness, autocracy. But no matter how much money or advice poured in, it seemed only to go backwards.Today, in a stunning, ironic twist of history, that dubious honor belongs to the English speaking world. It’s the one region of the globe going backwards today. Furiously and swiftly.We don’t need to debate that it is. It’s a fact. In the US, life expectancy, income, savings, and…See More

Half Chewed Humble Pie: Labour’s Right, down but not out.- Roger C.

So the general election is starting to fade and the effect of Labour’s shock successes, that forced Labour’s parasitical ‘wreckers’ to faux grasp faux humble pie, has started to fade too. During the election I metaphorically held my nose when the likes of Wes Streeting received support for their election campaigns but I think it’s safe to reflect on the election now and safe to reflect on Labour’s continued internal problems.Firstly, the problems Labour had before the election have shrunk to a…See More

That's ok Joe

I am on now

How do I let people know about the Community Ambassador and Community Development Programmes that are being deliverered for people in Essex-?

I can upload course information sheets if you wish or give links for people to find out more-The courses have been planned in response to local demand and are constantly being adapted to meet local needs.  The programme was successfully delivered in South Essex in 2012-13 and feedback from learners confirms that there were a wide range of benefits to support individuals and local communities (geographical and social)

Hi Joe,

Sorry, team communications. Accessing the site to share information and resources with a group at the University of Central Lancashire involved with the work of Paulo Freire. My area is working with homeless groups to facilitate solidarity through supporting service user groups in challenging stima and inequality and influencing policy.
