Great to be part of the development of the cracking exhibition by Dave Sinclair ‘The Thatcher Years – my 80’s’ which had a lot of people chatting, reflecting and thoughtful, whilst also planning for tomorrows.

Lots of people who were involved in politics in the 80’s and again now against the cuts, sipping ‘The milk snatcher’ rum cocktails (thanks Richmix)

It was also the day of elections in some part of the country, and timed nicely to celebrate 30 years of the election of the Liverpool 47, a socialist council who fought Thatchers government and won huge concessions properly representing the community who elected them.

In the same room were a family who have led a public campaign against their homelessness and for housing for all. An excellent film of that campaign was shown that begins to the table the consequences of the cuts and class war that is being waged upon us.

We had a film about tax avoidance, also put into perspective the fact that there is more than enough money to be distributed. Funny, but just not.

Followed by a discussion from different campaigns going on & what could be done from ‘Sick of your Boss‘, ‘TUSC‘, ‘NSSN‘ &  The Counihan-Sanchez family.

Enjoyed the sharp wit of Flood theatre, questioning, considered and challenging in a slightly surreal manner! Plus a very ego driven Mayor that brought tears to our eyes!

The start of some good conversations, possible working together to fight against cuts and FOR a re-distribution of wealth! Change is gonna come..
