    Open Letter: Sistah Space Venue Relocation

    We have grown increasingly concerned with the situation regarding Sistah Space and the proposed relocation to their previous address in Clapton.

    Today with the Hackney Women’s Equality Party and Hackney Liberal Democrats we have sent a joint letter to Mayor Philip Glanville seeking assurances that arrangements are in place to ensure we avoid the loss of this essential service for African and Caribbean women suffering from domestic abuse across Hackney and London and asking the following:

    We have repeatedly been told that we are asking too much too quickly to tackle the Climate Crisis, that drastic change is not possible, that we cannot so easily change human behaviour.

    Policy and Ideas Meeting - Waste

    Wednesday, January 20, 2021 at 07:30 PM · 7 rsvps

    Our regular monthly Policy and Ideas meetings are an opportunity for members to contribute to and discuss local party strategy and to understand and inform policies.

    Each month we will select a topic to give each one enough space to have a detailed discussion and to make real progress.

    This month we are discussing Waste, Recycling and the Circular Economy - formulating our policy for Hackney. This will build on the work we did last August at a previous meeting and members are welcome to suggest actions and policies, as well as comment on the work done so far.

    The question we are addressing is what will we do as Green councillors?

    It will be a lively and friendly discussion, open to all members, so please join us by using the RSVP link below.

    February Book Club

    Monday, February 22, 2021 at 07:30 PM · 1 rsvp

    Our popular book club continues in January with a book on the current hot topic of a Universal Basic Income (UBI).

    About the book (offical blurb):

    Let’s start with a little history lesson: in the past, everything was worse.

    We live in a time of unprecedented upheaval. Everywhere there are pressing questions: about the future, society, work, happiness, family and money. Yet no political party of the right or left is providing us with answers (Ed: apart from the Green Party of course 🙄)

    Rutger Bregman, a bestselling Dutch historian, explains that it needn't be this way. Bregman shows that we can construct a society with visionary ideas that are, in fact, wholly implementable. Every milestone of civilization - from the end of slavery to the beginning of democracy - was once considered a utopian fantasy. New utopian ideas such as universal basic income and a 15-hour work week can become reality in our lifetime.

    This guide to a revolutionary yet achievable utopia is supported by multiple studies, lively anecdotes and numerous success stories. From a Canadian city that once completely eradicated poverty, to Richard Nixon's near implementation of a basic income for millions of Americans, Bregman takes us on a journey through history, beyond the traditional left-right divide, as he introduces ideas whose time has come.
