Event description

Description

Join us for the Edinburgh launch of Building A New Catalonia, with host Mike Small and contributors from the new book.

A vibrant, thoughtful, incredibly timely new book, Building A New Catalonia articulates the political strategies and aspirations of the anti-capitalist, feminist and socialist struggles for self-determination in Catalonia in a series of 35 short and sharply written essays. It brings together the leading voices of Catalonian left independence movement alongside key figures in the international solidarity movement.

The book includes chapters by Catalan political leaders including Jordi Cuixart (currently in jail awaiting trial for sedition), Liz Castro and David Fernandez, and prominent international contributors including journalist Paul Mason and economist Costas Lapavitsas.

Doors open at 7, event starts 7.30 sharp.


Accessibility

Unfortunately the Counting House is NOT wheelchair accessible, as there is a set of steps up to the main room. Speakers will be using microphones at this event and it will be seated. There is a toilet, although this too is not very accessible. If you have any access needs do give the bookshop a shout (email us a books @ Lighthousebookshop .com) and we'll try to accomodate you however we can.

We have 15 free tickets availble for this event, intended to make the evening accesible to those who are unwaged/ on benefits/ might not otherwise be able to attend - If you can afford a £5 ticket please book one as this supports the bookshop and allows us to save free places for those who can't, thanks!

You can also buy your tickets in the shop & save yourself the eventbrite booking fee :P
