Book reading with Chris Nineham on ‘The British State’
February 10 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Book reading & Q&A with Chris Nineham on ‘The British State’ Monday, 10th Feb at St Marys in the Castle, 6pm. £2 OTD.
Chris Nineham is a founder member of the Stop the War Coalition, and currently a vice chair. He was one of the organisers of the two million February 15th, 2003 demonstration in London and central to the international co-ordination that led to the protests going global. He was also an international organiser of the Genoa G8 protests in 2001 and played a central role in the co-ordination of the European Social Forum in Florence (2002), Paris (2003) and London (2004) as well as being a co-ordinator of the WSF assembly of social movements.
What happens if a radical government gets elected in Britain? How will the banks, the civil servants, the media and the military react? Is the idea of a British coup far-fetched? How can the left prepare?
Chris Nineham addresses these questions by looking behind the myths at the reality of two hundred years of British state rule. He brings us a warning from history. Don’t be fooled again, read this book.
