‘There is an alternative’ – register today for the Progressive London Conference

On Saturday, I will be travelling to London to speak at the Progressive London conference, organised by Ken Livingstone. The conference brings together a very wide range of people to discuss the alternative to the government’s cuts agenda, as well as sessions on opposing racism, and supporting the uprisings in the Middle East and North Africa.

‘There is an alternative’
Saturday 19th February 2011
TUC, Congress House, Great Russell St, London

Sessions at the conference include:

London against the cuts • Students lead the way • We are not all in this together — the cuts and equality • Emergency session on the developments in Egypt, Tunisia and the Middle East • Defending multiculturalism — One Society Many Cultures • A green ‘plan B’ — why we need a low-carbon strategy out of recession • Lessons of the Irish economy • Proud London • Tory Mayor — what’s the verdict? • Housing — foundations for the future • Trade unions — under attack • Fighting back against the Tory cuts • The cost of war — the price for people • Grounded — future alternatives to airport expansion • Growth or cuts? • How do we get a fairer voting system? • Unfare — Better transport for all • Arts against the cuts • March for the Alternative

It looks set to be a great conference, and there is still time to register online.
