Our activist conference on 23 June, ‘The People versus the Banks’, is looking pretty exciting, with some great speakers as well as opportunities to get involved in dismantling the ‘bankocracy’. I hope you can make it – if so, don’t forget to book your free place now:http://www.wdm.org.uk/events/people-versus-banks
On 26 March we held a successful film night at RISC. We watched two short films: ‘Crises of Capitalism’ and ‘A Natural System and Agricultural Philosophy and then had some really good discussions about economic justice, food sovereignty and campaigning locally in Reading. There was a lot of energy for getting a new WDM group going in Reading and people had lots of ideas about upcoming events that we could organise a stall at, other local groups to get in touch with, and ways of making WDM’s campaigns relevant to people in Reading.
We’re having our next meeting on Monday 23 April at 7.30pm at RISC.
Come along and find out more about getting more involved with the new group.
