STANDING WITH THE STUDENTS. 2.30pm - 4.00pm Film Event Since the spring of 2005, students of the University of Buea, challenging a 10-year illegitimate ban on all forms of protest, have been striking to request basic rights and essential amenities. As usual Cameroon forces were brought in to forcefully stop the strike. By November 2006, the forces had shot and killed 5 students, beaten another to death and severely injured many more. This documentary tries to tell the story of these horrifying events. more info about Standing with the Students CITY STROLLS - BRIDGE PROJECT. COMMON AIMS, SELF DETERMINATION AND THE RESPONSIBILITY OF ASSOCIATION. 4.00pm - 5.30pm Discussion Event On the "practicalities" of working and cooperating with each other in the movement for change. Taken from the idea that the work of radical groups, or whatever we want to call ourself, is to expand the base for a working class movement for change. At present we have the building blocks in various specialities, and all the ingredients to mix the cement. We seem to lack the commonality and vision of what it is we want to do, or hope to build. How do we discover if what we are doing can be done better, more effectively? How do we reach the wider audience not just the converted? Why does the wheel get regularly reinvented - the same problems crop up continuously? What has happened to the common dream that could shape the architecture of our collective endeavour? And most importantly, how do we encourage self determination in our communities? more info about City Strolls INDUSTRIAL WORKERS OF THE WORLD.

THE KURDISH AND ARMENIAN GENOCIDES: FROM CENSORSHIP AND DENIAL TO RECOGNITION? 7.00pm - 8.30pm Book Launch Event Writer Desmond Fernandes will be discussing some of the issues contained within his latest book. This book examines the manner in which Armenian genocide denialism is questionably promoted by the governments of Turkey, the US, UK and Israel, as well as by various lobbies in Israel, the US and Turkey. It also confronts an issue that has been largely ignored by the British and US mainstream media and by mainstream British/US academic and political circles – that of the “Kurdish genocide in Turkey”. The problem of censorship is also charted. Published by Apec Press (Stockholm) 2008. ALEX LAW and GERRY MOONEY. NEW LABOUR / HARD LABOUR - RESTRUCTURING AND RESISTANCE INSIDE THE WELFARE INDUSTRY. 8.30pm - 10.00pm Book Event Alex Law will introduce his recently published book and highlight some of important questions it raises. "This timely collection illuminates a very important aspect of the New Labour regime - its tough and often hostile approach to workers within the welfare state. This has received scant attention from social scientists, but this book provides an expert and critical survey across a wide range of the salient issues with an appropriate emphasis on workers' resistance."
