Politics and Protest
Fifty poets have contributed to an anthology of poems in support of Jeremy Corbyn and the movement that is taking Labour towards opposing austerity, kicking out the Tories, implementing socialist politics and reconnecting with working-class people.
At this event, of them will read/perform, and you can buy this memorable collection of verse.
In a pub somewhere near the Lovell Park Autism Hub. Meet outside the Hub at 7pm or text 07957-217639 to find out where we are! Janine will give a take about Marxism and Autism, then we'll chat about it. Can Marxism explain the social position and experiences of autistic people? Are there specific Marxist theories that are useful? Is capitalism both developed and disabling? What's class got to do with it?

You've voted Labour all your life?
We don't trust you, pal, or your wife
I've made an entry in my casebook
You posted something rude on Facebook
You want to know: what did you do?
Well guess what? We're not telling you!
Left-wing stances you're absorbing
Seen your Twibbon - voting Corbyn
... with a nod to W.H.Auden's The Night Train ...
Janine and other Poets on the Picket Line will be showing some rhyming solidarity with London Transport Museum cleaners and porters.
I'd rather go to prison or be given a huge fine
Or have cosmetic surgery from Doctor Frankenstein
Sit through a boring lecture on interior design
Yes, I’d rather do most anything than cross a picket line
