This event was held on Monday 27th October, 7pm, at ‘The Light,’ Friends Meeting House, 173 Euston Rd. NW1 2BJ. A video of this event is below…
We know our current system is nonsense, and a lot of the billionaire-owned media (or tax avoiding directed media, aka BBC) divert us from the solutions, but many of the alternative narratives are fuzzy or simplistic (except to agree that we’re being ripped off – using economic fairy stories). Expect to think hard and get the rest of the assembly to do the same. We will do our best to expand the voices but murder the myths. And yes, there are answers.
Susanne Ismail, host- Quaker Peace and Social Witness.
Julie Timbrell, facilitator – New Putney Debates.
Owen Jones, Campaigner, Journalist & Author. His recent book is, “The Establishment – and how they get away with it”. Owen recently filled Birmingham Cathedral & had turn-aways at London School of Economics. He is more than ‘the Justin Bieber of the Left’. His dissection of establishment self-deceit and machination is forensic and the faint praise of the media and the purist left is testimony to his potency.
Emeritus Professor Victoria Chick, University College London. Veteran economist who always saw through the hyperbole of monetarism. Her vivisection of recent banking dynamics might even make a finance billionaire blush.
Carlo Nero, Activist & filmmaker, showing the Killing Fields. Carlo depicts visually and emotionally the trauma which the Norman model of land seizure has inflicted on the world. If there is a one shot solution this may be the best bullet.
Fred Harrison, Land Activist, Author & filmmaker. He is part the intellectual inspiration driving his and Carlo’s film about our right to our heritage.
Peter Smith, Conservationist. The planet comes first stupid – but we need the economic sophistication to prioritise it.
Each speaker will make their points and we will see a short film about the devastation of the current asset ownership orthodoxy. Then you will question, speak, think, get feedback and go on to act.
