Why Is Syria Hell on Earth? Here’s the Ugly but True Answer - Zaron Burnett

Hafez al-AssadIf you catch news of the Syrian conflict, it seems like a narrative that’s knotted and frayed, impossible to untangle. However, it’s not, if you pull on the right thread.When the world learned that the Syrian government––under orders from President Bashar al-Assad––had (allegedly) dropped bombs of sarin gas on its own…See More

To prevent fires in Britain, Neocons must stop lighting them overseas - Neil Clark

The Grenfell Tower fire in West London, which has killed at least 58 people and left many more homeless, is a shocking indictment of the UK's neoliberal/neo-conservative Establishment and their warped priorities.We don’t have, it seems, enough money for all tower blocks in the country to be fitted with sprinklers and for adequate fire safety measures to be in place, but we do have enough to set fire to a series of secular Middle East countries that the Western elites and the endless war lobby…See More

Doughnut Economics: Seven Ways to Think Like a 21st-Century Economist - Kate Raworth.

Doughnut Economics: Seven Ways to Think Like a 21st-Century Economist  Kate Raworth.Economics is broken. It has failed to predict, let alone prevent, financial crises that have shaken the foundations of our societies. Its outdated theories have permitted a world in which extreme poverty persists while the wealth of the super-rich grows year on year. And its blind spots have led to policies that are degrading the living world on a scale that threatens all of our futures.Worldwide, one person in…See More

A vote for Labour is a vote for yourself - Joel Lazarus

 Anyway, here we are on the eve of another general election. I just want to make one main point – that a vote for Labour is really a vote of confidence in yourself, in ourselves, in society, in hope. I’ll explain what I mean in a second, but, first, this statement comes with a massive caveat: if you are in a constituency where Labour cannot win, but another party other than the Conservatives can then DON’T VOTE LABOUR. PLEASE don’t increase the Tory candidate’s chances by voting Labour.…See More

Labour’s vision for Britain is of the people, for the people - Roger C.

Thursday’s election unequivocally proved that Labour’s current leadership have a vision for Britain that the public want to pursue, they have cut through the negative narrative that was engineered to thwart them and deny Britain an opposition and an alternative to the self-serving…

From caretaker leader to squatter: Theresa May must resign - Roger C.

I have argued for some time that Theresa May would not survive long as leader of the Tories due to her absolute lack of support and popularity within her own party. I have argued that May was a ‘caretaker’ leader, who would be permitted to get the brexit ball rolling but who would be replaced before a general election. I have also argued that she called the election on the 8th June as a means of shoring up her leadership in the face of an imminent leadership…

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.
