Arise Event This Evening on Working Class Justice

I got this email yesterday giving the details about an online event this evening being put on as part of the Arise Festival of left-wing ideas. It’s about justice is to be obtained for the working class, and the blurb runs as follows.

1) No justice! No peace! What is working class justice and how do we get it? – Tune in at Arise Festival 

Premieres, Sunday July 10, 19.00.Register here // Retweet here // Get ticket for the whole festival here.

Whether it’s justice for the many miners violently assaulted by the police and the 95 arrested miners picketing the Orgreave coking plant in 1984, to the 72 people killed in the Grenfell tower fire in 2017, justice has often evaded working class communities – and been bitterly opposed by the establishment.

In this session, co-hosted by Arise Festival and the Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign (OTJC), Kate Flannery (OTJC), Yvette Williams (Justice for Grenfell), and Matt Foot (author, Charged: How the police try to suppress protest) meet to discuss the complicity of the state in committing violence against working class people, what justice looks like for those communities, and how we build the movement we need to get it.

In association with the Orgreave Truth & Justice Campaign. An online event as part of Arise 2022 – A Festival of Left Ideas.
