September here we come – what’s coming up

We’ve had a lazy summer over August. While the Cat Hill protests are still ongoing in general the news slows down and a fair few of the North London Star team have been sunning themselves on their well deserved breaks. But September is gearing up to be a hyper-active month.


Take a look at our notice board, and I this is just the tip of the iceberg;


Tonight (the first) the impressive Friern Barnet Community Library is meeting up to counter the threats to its existence.

Also tonight at Somerstown’s Cock Tavern the Association of Musical Marxists launch their new book on Helen MacFarlane, a much neglected radical socialist and the first translator into English of the Communist Manifesto.

On Wednesday (the third) Haringey Left Unity are getting together to debate and discuss the way forward locally for left activists.

On Thursday (the fourth) a very timely book launch, the Story of Baby P, as child protection is much in the news. Come down to the Big Green Bookshop for the discussion.

Also on Thursday there’s an important meeting to defend the NHS, “Haringey needs St Ann’s hospital”.

On Saturday (the sixth) the People’s March for the NHS finally gets to London. Join them for the last leg and help show the politicians of all colours that the health service is not for sale.

On the tenth the Barnet Alliance for Public Services (BAPS) have their AGM to help organise their important work.

On the 12th we see the nationwide launch of Pride, a brilliant feel good film set partly in Camden and partly in a Welsh mining village during the great strike of ’84. Not to be missed!

On the same day (12th) Nick Davies is speaking on his book Hack Attack at the excellent Wood Green bookshop, the Big Green Bookshop.

On the 16th of September the North London People’s Assembly is holding a rally to bring together all those who oppose austerity in the area.

On the 17th Housmans bookshop is hosting what looks like a very interesting talk on the shape of the city – ‘The View from the Train: Cities and Other Landscapes’ with Patrick Keiller

On the 18th of September author Tansy Hoskins discusses whether fashion can ever be ethical at the Hub near Kings Cross. It’s a free event but you need to book your place.

From the 18th to the 20th of September at the Wood Green Learning Centre there’s the Tottenham Palestine Literature Festival.

On the 21st of September the national climate march is taking place in London and will be well worth getting down to in order to help push for a healthier planet.

On the 22nd at the Crossroads Women’s Centre in Kentish Town sex workers and sex worker activists from Canada and London will be talking about the issues that effect them.

On the 30th there’s a chance to put your feet up at the left leaning “Songs From Below” in Camden with a line-up to make you smile. Details here.


Is your event missing from this list? Let us know and we’ll happily advertise your meeting, protest or activity in North London.
