REBUILDING THE PLEBS TRADITION- INDEPENDENT WORKING CLASS EDUCATIONSaturday 20th April 2013- 10.30 – 3.30 Working Class Movement Library, Salford, near Manchester M5 4WX £5.00 includes lunch.
The Independent Working Class Education Project aims to learn the lessons of history to inform current class struggle. Inspired by the Ruskin Students strike of 1909, we organise open informed discussions and look at how interesting presentations can be used in a variety of circumstances. We offer materials and contacts and always try to operate in a non-sectarian way; we are not committed to any particular political current.
Please join us at our next meeting on Saturday 20 April 2013 in Salford. The presentations will be short and include lots of vigorous non-sectarian discussion. Rob Turnbull: The Plebs League in the North East; Greg Coyne: Active Learning and the WEA; Phoebe Moore: What 'decent work' means in the crisis; Joel Lazarus: The Free Education Network political economy workshops; Joyce Canaan: Critical pedagogy within and outside the neo liberalised university; Paul Smith: Reading groups.
Our next Workshops are at London Metropolitan University (1st June), South Wales then NE England.
