On Sunday 27 January. North East London AWL will host a showing of Ken Loach’s film Land and Freedom as a social and fundraiser for Workers’ Liberty.
Film showings can be a more accessible way of having political discussions than more traditional or formal meetings. Although Loach’s film is far from perfect politically, it is a good jumping off for a discussion about the Spanish Revolution and Civil War.
A film showing is also a somewhat more congenial way of raising funds than standing on a street corner rattling a tin. It doesn’t take much – a space, a screen, and some food and drink.
Your local AWL branch may be organising similar events: email email@example.com to get in touch.
The North East London event takes place from 3:30pm in Betty Brunker Hall, Mora Street, Islington, EC1V 8EH. It costs £8/£4 (waged/unwaged), including food and drink. See here for more.
