Do you want to vote which ideas we campaign on youth unemployment?
Do you want to help develop how we campaign on this?
The Cuts Don’t Work
Saturday 30 Jan - 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Congress House, Great Russell Street, London, United Kingdom
Why do we have to pay the price for their crisis? When they want to charge us more to get into university and get housing? While they carry on slashing our pay, our jobs and our services. It’s time to fight the recession. It’s time to take back our future.
Whether you’ve been involved in organizing before or not, you’re probably curious about how to campaign and maybe even fired up about an issue you’d like to campaign on.
You’ll be able to help develop campaign strategies on issues that are affecting young people the most through the recession. You can then work out with us and other young activists how we spread the word and how we target those in power to act.
We’ve also invited a cracking line up of speakers who are organising for young people right across the country:
Noel Hatch – Chair of Compass Youth
Rowenna Davis – Journalist at the Guardian, Independent and Headliners
Sam Tarry – Hope not Hate Organiser and Chair of Young Labour
Nizam Uddin – President of University of London Union
Bell Ribeiro-Addy – Black Students’ Officer for NUS
As well as the Mercury Music Award Winner – Speech Debelle!
So come and join us and Progressive London on Saturday 30th January between 10-5pm.
Sign up here!
Everyone who signs up to this session will get a free campaign toolkit on the day
Ideas are nothing without action. But together we can build the London we want to see.
This session is part of a wider conference that will bring together leading figures in London and beyond to discuss the most important issues for progressive politics in 2010, nationally, internationally and in London and the ideas, alliances and policies we need to move forward.
Progressive London was initiated by Ken Livingstone in 2008 as a cross-party, multi-community forum involving politicians, artists, trade unionists, bloggers, community activists and campaigners to promote social progress in the capital.
