‘Benefit scroungers’. ‘Environmental extremists’. ‘Migration crisis’. There is a story being told that the people are to blame for austerity, climate change and economic crisis. We know another story. We know a story where the rich and powerful stole from the poor. Where the people that caused the collapse of the banks are the ones profiting from austerity.

But we can build a different story.

We are building a story of sharing economies, pay-as-you-feel cafes, cooperatives, solidarity and resistance. Stories where migrants are welcomed with open arms and deportations are fought tooth and nail. We are building a story with social justice at its heart.

Join us to shake up the stories we’re told and build new ones for a more just and sustainable world.

Includes film showing of Naomi Klein’s This Changes Everything film and a rally with Denis Fernando from Stand Up to Racism – for tickets see here:
