Jeremy Corbyn – a mainstream [Scandinavian] social democrat - Jonas Fossli Gjersø

As a Scandinavian who has spent more than a decade living in Britain, nothing has made me feel more foreign than observing the current Labour leadership election. From his style to his policies Mr Corbyn would, in Norway, be an unremarkably mainstream, run-of-the-mill social-democrat. His policy-platform places him squarely in the Norwegian Labour Party from which the last leader is such a widely respected establishment figure that upon resignation he became the current Secretary-General of…See More

The Tories unleash a ‘day of rage’ every day. It’s called austerity - John Wright.

The right wing backlash against the righteous anger and, yes, rage over the mass incineration of human beings inside Grenfell Tower in the London borough of Kensington and Chelsea has begun. Demonising those who dare do anything other than wave a few placards and sing hymns in solidarity with the victims and survivors is being characterise as tantamount to calling for revolution by apologists for a status quo of rampant inequality, social and economic injustice, and in light of Grenfell…See More

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

The government must pause Universal Credit - Gillian Guy

By 2022, 7 million families in the UK will receive Universal Credit, which is replacing 6 existing means-tested benefits. We welcome efforts to simplify our benefits system. But Universal Credit is already failing thousands of people.Every day at Citizens Advice we see people being pushed into desperate circumstances by problems with the new system. 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

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.
