Open meeting on Jeremy Corbyn's victory

Thursday 17 September / 7.30 p.m. / Friends' Meeting House, 12 Jesus Lane, Cambridge CB5 8BA

Our friends in Cambridge Left Unity and Cambridge rs21 – under the label of a still-wider Cambridge Left Forum – have organized an open meeting, Corbyn: What Next?, where we can discuss what we can do together in Cambridgeshire to realize the themes of Jeremy Corbyn's extraordinary, irresistible anti-austerity campaign for leadership of the Labour Party. We'll discuss what we can do 'to defend our public services, to campaign for the living wage, to make sure everyone has a decent home, and to fight spiralling inequality.'

What next? Special meeting

Wednesday 19 August / 7.30 p.m. / 82 Akeman Street Community Room, Cambridge CB4 3HG

As announced on the mailing list last week, we're holding a special meeting tonight to plan for the rest of the year and to discuss the direction of the group: that is, how we can avoid the Cambridge People's Assembly becoming another local campaign group and make sure it's an instrument that other groups can use as needed! This will be an open discussion without an agenda.

Please notice the new, wheelchair-accessible venue.
