Next meeting/banner making
The next meeting about the Reclaim The Streets street party for DSEi will be on Tuesday 19th August at 7pm at LARC, 62 Fieldgate St, Whitechapel, London E3. Nearest tube Whitechapel. Be mindful that there are likely to be police photographers outside taking pics of people arriving.
Immediately after the meeting, there will be banner-making in the basement at the same venue. People with no experience are especially welcome. We need to buy some ripstop material first. If anyone’s volunteering to get some from Bhopal’s in nearby Brick Lane, contact the email list first.
We’re still looking for a more central London venue for the meeting of Tuesday 26th August.
Street party flyers should be available from Freedom Bookshop, Angel Alley, of Whitechapel High St, London E3 by Friday afternoon. There should also be some at LARC (address above) nearby, although LARC may not be open on Friday afternoon. Freedom is open Saturdays. Stickers will be available from the same place.
