For our bi-annual New Putney Debates Festival running from 28th October 9th November we will be celebrating the 799th anniversary of the Charter of the Forest. This is the companion charter to the Magna Carta and had greater relevance to peasants and their land rights…
This is prelude to a bigger celebration which we will host next year (2017) on the 800th anniversary of the Charter of the Forest.
After the Occupy Democracy
protests at Parliament Square ended on October 26th, Occupy London
continues to push for real democracy with The New Putney Debates.
This examines democratic pathways to social, economic and ecological justice. The New Putney Debates
takes place in accessible London locations. The events benefit from wide practical support, including Friend’s House at Euston, Trades Unions, Charities and Colleges.
