Our next public meeting:


Thursday 19 May at 19.00 (7pm).

Speakers: Kiri Tunks from the PSC national executive and also junior vice president to the NUT (speaking in a personal capacity) and Peter Chowney leader of Hastings Council.

Two new legal devices aim to shut down debate on Israel's illegal occupation of Palestinian lands and stop the growing boycott of goods.
The first is the "Prevent" programme that obliges teachers and lecturers to collect intelligence about the thoughts and beliefs of individuals. It is increasingly being seen as a domestic spying programme.
The second legal device is the "Putting a stop to public procurement boycotts" policy. Peter Chowney leader of Hastings Council will be speaking at the meeting about this government's attempt to impose arbitrary restrictions on councils' right to spend ethically.
