Times are a-changing

On 14 May, one week after the general election, and after just four days’ notice, 1,000 people crammed into the first London Radical General Assembly, created ‘to provide a space where people thinking radically about change could come together and discuss working in a more joined-up way’.

There was a follow-up event on 23 May in Bethnal Green, also organised by Brick Lane Debates.

The assembly may become a monthly event, spawning local assemblies and new networks of activists. More info:
