An afternoon of talks, discussions and ideas, with speakers from Greece, Italy and Iceland.
Saturday 28 February - The Common Place
3.30pm–7pm - followed by Greek food and a benefit gig
An uprising in Greece… An uncontrollable wave of refusal spreading from Italian schools and colleges… Widespread unrest threatening to topple the Icelandic government… Rioting in Latvia and Bulgaria… How does all this relate to the current global crisis, and to rising debt and spiraling unemployment in the UK? How is it connected to struggles here in Leeds against deportations, in defence of the social wage, against climate change? And how does it fit into a wider resurgence of struggles for autonomy, such as action around the upcoming G20 summit and April Financial Fools Day?
7pm a Greek meal to raise money for Greek prisoners (£5,including wine)
8pm Benefit gig featuring (£3/£4 entry):
