Event description
Only Socialism can avert a climate disaster! Open meeting for all, hosted by Bury Momentum.

About this Event

In May 2019, the U.K parliament declared a Climate Emergency – a motion led by Jeremy Corbyn. Since then scores of councils, organisations and other countries have followed suit. How we respond will define our generation and the world to come…

How can a socialist Labour party approach the emergency, ensuring no-one is left behind and we come out with a stronger, fairer and green country? How would a Tory Party deliver commitments to the planet whilst furthing their own interests, and how would this impact the poorest, most vulnerable and those already facing the consequences of climate change.

Join us when we’ll be hearing from a panel of fantastic speakers, from a range of local and wider campaigns. There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and for general discussion. Come along and learn, share your ideas and partake in the debate, and find out why a Left approach to the Climate Emergency is the only way to save the planet.

Speakers:

- What is the Green New Deal? with Adam Williams, Greater Manchester Labour for a Green New Deal.

- Youth Strikes 4 Climate: with Emma Greenwood, Bury young activist

- One Million Climate Jobs: with Judy Paskcall, Greater Manchester Campaign against Climate Change activist, Chair of Frack Free Greater Manchester, Fridays for Future activist, Extinction Rebellion supporter

We meet SERIOUSLY RED! Bury’s Socialist Café, at Ground Up Coffee Shop, 8 Market St, Bury, BL9 0AJ.
