The next meeting of Sussex LRC takes place at Community Base in central Brighton at 19.30 on Tuesday 7 February 2012.

Our guest speakers will be Mark Seddon and Michael Chessum, NUS National Executive Council.

Speakers:

Mark Seddon is a previous editor of Tribune and was a constituency representative on Labour’s NEC for 8 years during Blair’s leadership before leaving the UK to become Al Jazeera’s correspondent at the UN in New York. Mark has recently published “Standing for Something: Life in the Awkward Squad”; see here. Mark will entertain us with reflections on his experiences and a life being lived on the Left.

Michael Chessum is one of the leaders of the student protests, as a member of the NUS National Executive Council and co-founder of the National Campaign Against Fees and Cuts. See: http://anticuts.com/ for more information on the work of NCAFC and try this link here for Michael’s defence of student protesters reacting against police provocation, when interviewed live on BBC News in December 2010. Michael will update us on the student protests, including those of 9 November 2011 which were overlooked by most media. What is being considered next? Where does the movement go now and who or what are its primary targets?
