Putney debates again

Congratulations to the Occupy London Movement for resurrecting the great democratic spirit of the Diggers and Levellers who propelled the English revolution of the mid seventeenth century. They have reconvened the Putney debates 365 years on.

Celebrating the 365th year anniversary of the original Putney Debates, Occupy London is holding a series of events inspired by the Levellers’ and Diggers’ demands for social justice, civil rights and equal access to the land.

The programme of events is scheduled between 27 October and 11 November 2012, and the venue for some events will be St. Mary’s Church in Putney where the Debates started on 28 October 1647.

Contributors include Richard Wilkinson (The Spirit Level), Natalie Bennett (new Leader of the Green Party), Michael Mansfield QC, George Monbiot, Polly Higgins, Jeremy Leggett, John McDonnell MP, Halina Ward, Professor Conor Gearty, Annette Zera, Joseph Choonara, Hilary Koob-Sassen, and many other activists, theorists, writers and artists.

Throughout the New Putney Debates there will be an emphasis on public participation, in the spirit of 1647, when it was said that England was “A Nation of Prophets”

Meanwhile many countries and Amnesty international have warned about violence to tourists in the USA. RAMPANT CAPITALISM.

In 1983 Labour manifesto stated: “We will also open immediate negotiations with our EEC partners, and introduce the necessary legislation, to prepare for Britain’s withdrawal from the EEC, to be completed well within the lifetime of the Labour government."

@theworkerorguk Here is the Labour party election leaflet from the 1979 June EEC election. The very first one. I knew the candidate in passing who advised me in 1982 when I was just 18 the sooner we are out the EEC the better. 34 years later I voted Leave
