Cambridge: Danny Dorling on 'Geography and Inequality'

Wednesday 26 November / 8 p.m. / Queen's Building, Emmanuel College, Cambridge CB2 3AP

We've noticed that the geographer Danny Dorling (latest book Inequality and the 1%) is speaking in Cambridge tomorrow at the invitation of the Cambridge University Geographical Society, on a subject at the centre of our concerns. Austerity sharpens inequalities – and a nice sharp inequality can be used as a tool to hone austerity.

We think Danny Dorling's talk will be of broad interest and well worth hearing. Tickets are £2 on the door.

Cambridge: Film and theatre for the NHS

Friday 28 November / 7.30 p.m. / The Boathouse, Chesterton Road, Cambridge CB4 3AX

Our friends in Cambridge Keep Our NHS Public (KONP) have jointly organized a remarkable night of film and theatre 'to defend and celebrate the NHS' this Friday night. As part of the Just Press Mini-Festival of Dissenting Ideas (although we wonder if privatization and underfunding aren't the dissenting ideas where the NHS is concerned), Cambridge KONP and Just Press are presenting

  • the documentary film Sell-Off: The Abolition of Your NHS, produced by doctors concerned that profit rather than patient care is driving current reforms in the NHS, and
  • the 'cartoon action' play Conversations with a National Treasure, performed by Theatre of the Streets.

Cambridge: One Million Climate Jobs

Saturday 22 November / 3 p.m. / Castle Street Methodist Church Hall, Cambridge CB3 0AH

Saturday's event is about one of the real alternatives to the dogma of austerity. A new report by the Campaign Against Climate Change (CCC) takes forward the pressure group's argument for investment in one million climate jobs: those which 'lead directly to cuts in emissions of greenhouse gases, and so slow down climate change.' We need high-quality jobs like these – in renewable energy and public transport, for example – and not the low-paid, short-time, insecure jobs that characterize Britain under austerity. We also need a humanly viable world in which to work and play.
