Brighthelm Centre

North Road

BN1 1YD Brighton


A citizens’ conversation about democracy, cuts and resistance.

  • Why does a crisis of the banking system mean that we have to have our benefits and services cut?
  • What gave the Ritzy cinema workers the courage to strike and win a living wage?
  • What happened when a group of young single mums refused to accept eviction and rehousing far away from their community in East London?
  • How can we stop our NHS being dismantled piece by piece?

Come to Power to the People? to learn about what we’re up against and discuss how to take back our power and make our voices heard, here in Brighton. Whether you’re a busy activist or someone who’s never been political, the day will be inspiring and informative. Drop in any time or stay all day.
