I KNOW THE “WHAT” BUT NOT THE “HOW”: A talk by Marian Hobbs

The next speaker in our Another World Is Possible series is Marian Hobbs. Marian was a Labour MP between 1996 and 2008. She is a passionate campaigner for nuclear disarmament and helped establish the Chippenham Commune.

“The talk will be a quick trip through my varied experiences in searching for the HOW. They include setting up an urban commune; joining the CPNZ; organising in HART, particularly the 1981 tour; introducing shared decision-making to a large secondary school community of students and their parents and teaching and non-teaching hobbs posterstaff; decision-making in a Labour government; peace forums focussed on an end nuclear weapons.

But then picking up on all of these experiences and looking at HOW…with reference to Jeremy Corbyn and the Momentum movement; SNP; role of different media (the Spring uprisings/Greece)…but then right back into Dunedin….and our lives.”

Join us at 6pm at the Dunedin Fringe Festival space, lower level Dunedin Civic Centre, George Street on Wednesday 28th October.
