This Tuesday 10th January at 7.30 in The Casa the LSF will be hosting a meeting to discuss the options for a radical social centre in Liverpool. Many people have seen what The Basement in Manchester has achieved and what radical cafes and social centres all over the country have managed to do. Liverpool has no such space and activists often find themselves on the coat tails of various more or less commercial enterprises which can only partially cater for their needs, however well intentioned. Of particular concern is the lack of free or very low cost meeting spaces for smaller groups and film showings etc.
The meeting is completely open, with the agenda set at the beginning, and will discuss things like:
the purposes of such a centre
the logistics and politics of squatted or legal spaces
possible sources of funding
and anything else you can think of.
All are welcome, whether you want to be involved in setting something like this up, or whether you think you might be someone who would use such a space and want to have some input from the beginning.
