This Saturday 1st November! YORK FIRST WORLD WAR DAY-SCHOOL

YORK FIRST WORLD WAR DAY-SCHOOL:

THE ANTI-WAR PERSPECTIVE

Saturday 1st November 2014, Priory Street Centre

The York First World War Day-School will provide an alternative to the Government programme of commemoration.  This day-school aims to offer explanations of why the war was fought, and how the war was conducted, in as accessible way as possible.  This is not an academic conference.  There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions, to participate in discussion and to argue.  This event has been sponsored by York & District Trades Union Council.

The programme is attached which gives details of venue, times, ticket prices and where to buy these.  Tickets are also available on the day.

Change of venue

Until further notice the TSSA office in Nunnery Lane is undergoing renovations meaning that meetings of York TUC are going to be held elsewhere in November (and possibly December). Further information will be available once an alternate venue has been arranged.

Lots of cheery enthusiastic faces for this time of the morning!

We have made it to Embankment and are just setting up our banner for the day! It’s surprisingly warm for October, just hope it stays dry!! Lots of activists it seems with angry messages to send politicians and business leaders!
