Capitalism 101

War. Austerity. Climate change. Ever feel like the world is in crisis? What has capitalism done to our economy, our planet, our communities?

Brick Lane Debates is putting on a fortnightly series of radical, participatory workshops to explore the nature of the capitalist system and show how another world is possible. Don’t worry if you’ve never studied politics or are new to these ideas – the point of the course is to learn from each other and collaborate on establishing some basic building blocks with which to understand the world.

The seminars will be taught by Neil Faulkner, historian, campaigner & author of ‘A Marxist History of the World’.

Entrance is free.

Community Land Trusts – can we use them to create positive community plans?

Community Land Trusts
7pm Tuesday 28 October
Chestnuts Community Centre
St Ann’s Road, N15

Community Land Trusts can run community centres, social enterprises and social housing. Community centres in Tottenham are threatened with closure. Could a CLT offer a solution ?

Some people around Our Tottenham have organised a meeting to hear speakers from the Community Land Trust movement and find out more about how it would work. The meeting will be at Chestnuts Community Centre, 7pm Tuesday 28 October.

If it makes sense, we would move towards forming a working group to set up a CLT in Tottenham and use it to save one or more of the community centres under threat. Plus possibly getting some genuine social housing put up under community control.

As well as community centres, many local people want to see more ‘proper’ social rent housing instead of the Council’s plans. Some of this could be provided by community cooperatives or a new democratically controlled community housing organisation.

A Community Land Trust would help the community acquire and run sites (leasehold or freehold), negotiate with the Council or developers and landowners, obtain grant funding for feasibility studies, fees, loans for land purchase and eventually for building or refurbishment.

Come to Chestnuts Community Centre, St Ann’s Road, Tuesday 28 October at 7pm to discuss this and hear informed speakers. Agenda below.

See www.communitylandtrusts.org.uk and http://www.eastlondonclt.co.uk/ for background information.

Our Tottenham: ‘celebrating and defending our community centres’

The meeting will also consider what action is necessary to stop the expulsion of 28 user groups from Chestnuts on 31st December 2014.

A recent meeting of users agreed that they would like to try and create an alternative model to the Council’s current plans for the centre’s closure. Please come along and give support. If a new organisation is to be established it will need skills in administration, social media, campaigning, lobbying, as well as strategy, planning and financial management.

We will also be seeking donations from £1 upwards so that the new organisation can open a bank account to support the campaign.

Please spread this information via your own networks. We look forward to welcoming you next week.
