Coalition of Resistance conference (Saturday 27 November, 10am-5pm, central London). The coalition was launched in August following the publication of a statement from Tony Benn and many others, calling for a broad-based coalition of resistance to cuts and privatisation.
'The conference is filling up and it is important for people to book places now. We have managed to aquire extra space for the conference and there will be a wide range of workshops and plenary sessions.
One of the largest will be on organising against the cuts in your locality and we will be hearing from many of the new anti-cuts groups springing up around the country.
Also there will be sessions on defending the welfare state, working with the unions, states of inequality, analysing the crisis and debating the alternatives and many others. A full list of speakers and sessions will be sent out shortly.
