These are hugely inspiring films - with a model for radical community organising. '...showing visionary struggles - mainly in working class communities of colour - which, if combined with our experience as a movement here, could lead to climate change being seen not as a threat, but as an opportunity to create the communities we want to live in and at the same time put right historic injustices and inequalities.' TTB will be there to join the discussion. See a trailer here. This is the first of a series of bi-monthly Reel News film nights in Brixton.

Preparing Locally for a No-Deal Brexit.

Actions include collecting all food surplus, coordinating with Lambeth and local NGOs, a store of food, better food training for local and seasonal food, write an article for local media, local growing...  Please comment.
