Real World War One Freeschool
11.30am (for 12 noon start) - 1pm
The plan is to have short introductory talks followed by open discussions.
As it stands there are proposed sessions on:
• World War 1, its relevance today; why Capitalism Needs War
• Mutinies, women’s protests and revolutions
• Countering Cameron’s Commemorations
• War Today: Ukraine, Putin and more…
But other suggestions are welcome: we are not ‘experts’, we have some historical knowledge, but are always ready to learn. We see this freeschool as an opportunity for us all to learn from each other, and maybe come up with ideas to counter the government’s plans for glorification of the First World War.
All welcome, this event is free, but donations would be gratefully received on the day.
Disabled access is unfortunately poor…
This event is organised by Remembering the Real WW1 (London). We are a small group of activists, historians and rebels, part of a growing network of groups and individuals working to highlight the histories of the Great War that official ‘commemorations’ will sweep under the carpet.
