‘How to Kick Out the Tories!’ Rally – Saturday 1 July

Keeping up the mobilisation from the General Election, Momentum Sheffield and Sheffield Young Labour have organised a rally at City Hall on Saturday 1 July to discuss how Sheffield can help kick out the Tories! Join us at Barkers’ Pool at 11am – 1pm as we call for a socialist Labour government and link up our campaigns against the cuts-and-bigot-loving Tories.

A larger demonstration with the same theme will be taking place on the same day in London and we’d encourage you to attend if you can. Transport to the capital has been arranged by Sheffield People’s Assembly.

Yorkshire and the Humber Labour Party Women’s Conference – Saturday 1 July

Yorkshire and Humber Labour Party are hosting their first ever Regional Women’s Conference on Saturday 1 July. The event will be an opportunity to meet like-minded women in the Labour Party, network, receive training, and hear from some of the leading women in the Party.

Radical Readers Meeting – Wednesday 5 July

Momentum Sheffield’s Radical Readers book group will next meet at the Mugen Tea House on Wednesday 5 July from 6:30pm until 8pm. We’ll be discussing The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists by Robert Tressell. Because the novel is no longer copyright-protected, it can be found free online here.

So get reading! If you aren’t able to read all of the book, please focus on Chapter 21: ‘The Reign of Terror. The Great Money Trick’.
