    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.

  • Data Party

    Are you free on the evening of Thursday 3rd June?

    If so, you can help us input a pile of doorstep 60 Second Survey responses that our doorknock volunteers have been collecting from our local residents this year.

    If you've been to a previous data party, such as the one in February where we resolved a bunch of duplicates in our database you'll know it's an opportunity to hang out (online still for the time being) with some fellow Hackney Green Party members whilst lending a hand.  Last time we had a good turnout and got through the task in good time so we expect it won't go on past 8:30pm, and quite possibly finish earlier, and if you can only join for a limited time that's also fine.

    No experience or special skills required and we'll start with a run through of what needs doing, it's very straightforward.  You just need an internet browser on a laptop/desktop in order to take part.

    The session will be held over zoom, RSVP for joining instructions.

    We hope to see you there!
