  • July Book Club

    The Victoria, Queensbridge Road in London, United Kingdom

    Empireland: How Imperialism Has Shaped Modern Britain by Satnam Sangher

    For this month's book club we'll be discussing Empireland by Satnam Sangher. Join us for a very relaxed discussion of the themes arising from the book. Having read the book is not mandatory!

    The official blurb:

    In his brilliantly illuminating new book Sathnam Sanghera demonstrates how so much of what we consider to be modern Britain is actually rooted in our imperial past. In prose that is, at once, both clear-eyed and full of acerbic wit, Sanghera shows how our past is everywhere: from how we live to how we think, from the foundation of the NHS to the nature of our racism, from our distrust of intellectuals in public life to the exceptionalism that imbued the campaign for Brexit and the government's early response to the Covid crisis. And yet empire is a subject, weirdly hidden from view.

    The British Empire ran for centuries and covered vast swathes of the world. It is, as Sanghera reveals, fundamental to understanding Britain. However, even among those who celebrate the empire there seems to be a desire not to look at it too closely - not to include the subject in our school history books, not to emphasize it too much in our favourite museums.

    At a time of great division, when we are arguing about what it means to be British, Sanghera's book urges us to address this bewildering contradiction. For, it is only by stepping back and seeing where we really come from, that we can begin to understand who we are, and what unites us.

  • July Policy and Ideas - Refugees and Migration

    Wednesday, July 21, 2021 at 07:30 PM · 12 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 taking a break from local policy discussion to look at the wider issue of Refugee and Migration and have talks on the following topics

    Refugees at Home
    Refugees at Home has helped thousands of refugees and asylum seekers to avoid destitution and homelessness. They match guests with generous hosts who would like to offer a safe, welcoming place to stay, for the length of time that they can manage.

    The Unity Project and NRPF
    The no recourse to public funds (NRPF) policy exacerbates poverty, inequality and discrimination and should end. While it continues and as part of our work to end it, The Unity Project supports people to remove the NRPF condition from their leave to remain.

    Asylum and Migration Policy Working Group
    The Green Party have a policy group on Asylum and Migration policy, hear about their work and how to contribute.

    Benali Hamdache, Migrant and refugee support spokesperson for the Green Party
    Hear from Benali about the campaigns that he is working on and how you can help

    It will be a lively and friendly discussion, open to all members with new members being particularly welcome.
