As concerned humanity mobilises across the globe for workable solutions on climate change, Socialist Alliance New England (SANE) has organised a weekend of workshops on 28th and 29th November.

SANE, over three workshops, will reappraise socialism as our species faces its greatest collective threat in history.

Branch meeting to elect branch officers and discuss plans for future activities.

This monthly event at the Armidale Club, 91 Beardy Street, will encourage locals to engage in political discussion over a quiet beverage. This month we have invited three politically impassioned locals to share their thoughts over the nation-wide 'March in March' rallies.

This film is an important reminder of the lies and manipulation the United States and their allies use to discredit anyone who dares to state publicly that “trickle down” is in fact “gush up” and that there is an alternative to the destructive capitalist system.

Hugo Chávez said so and acted on it. The empire is keen to strike back and reverse any gains already made on the road to a just society based on solidarity and cooperation. As usual, the main stream media are complicit in spreading misrepresentations or outright lies — then and now.

Join us at the Imperial Hotel to plan for 30th August.

Women In Black is an international women’s peace network which was started by Israeli and Palestinian women in 1988, and has spread to many countries. We are silent because mere words cannot express the tragedy that wars and hatred bring.

Our silence is visible. We invite women to stand with us. We wear black as a symbol of sorrow for all victims of war, for the destruction of people, nature and the fabric of life.

Fishing in very troubled waters, the US administration, in February 2014, succeeded in engineering a coup in Kiev which overthrew the democratically elected, Russia-oriented government of Victor Yanukovich, triggering a civil war in Ukraine which is still ongoing. In this talk, Alfons van der Kraan will provide some historical background to these tragic events. Among other things, he will focus attention on the relationship between Russia and Ukraine in Tsarist times; on Ukraine during the revolution and civil war of 1917-21; and on Ukraine during the 1930s and WWII.

This fun, social idea came out of the 10 year celebration/future forum last November — We are inviting sustainability interest groups together for a social gathering called ‘Green Drinks’. To be honest the original idea was by Dave Carr organising similar get togethers for the enviro-sector in previous years. But what is original is the cool new venue for the get together.

At Kent house, 142 Faulkner Street, Arrmidale, community dinner from 7:30pm.

This 2014 documentary by Andrew Rossi examines the factors threatening to bring down America’s once highly envied higher education system.

One commentator claims that the decline of American higher education started in the 1970s when students had the rug pulled from under them by the shift in policy ‘from seeing education as a public good to seeing it exclusively as a private good’.
