Activism Research Network: Austerity and Social Justice

Canterbury Christ Church University’s Activism Research Network and GlobalNet21 hosted an event on Austerity and Social Justice in the Macmillan Room, House of Commons on January 28th 2016.


The speakers at the event were our very own Dr David Bates, Director of the Activism Research Network, and Kate Osamor, Labour MP for Edmonton.David_Parl

There was an intervention from London Playback Theatre together with a skilled facilitator Simon Floodgate, who listened to the stories of people affected by austerity and poverty and then put those stories into dramatic form. There were also some important interventions from our own students, including Lewis Palin and Josh Andrews (Level 4).  Audience_Glob
