As you can see from the timetable we have 15 sub assemblies over three sessions. We would like to draw your attention to two specifically:
The next step: creating local People’s Assemblies
One of the main sessions at the assembly will be on ‘Creating local People’s Assemblies’. In this session we will split off into regions to start to plan with people from where you live. If you are coming as part of a delegation from a region, we request that some or all of your delegates attend this session. We also encourage as many individuals to attend to get involved with the campaign.
Mobilising millions: Re-unionising the UK session
We would like to include in this session 3 minute case studies of local campaigns and how it helped build the union and the campaign against austerity. If you have a concrete experience and examples of this please send an email to email@example.com so we can call you from the floor.
