Event Details


Chris Thomas (2008)


How the 1976 strike by Asian women workers, so reminiscent of the Bermondsey Uprising in 1911, attracted solidarity across the country from thousands of male white workers whose unions had previously offered women and refugees scant support.

The event also includes a short film showing the ashes of Grunwick strike leader Jayaben Desai being scattered from a boat on the Thames, not far from Cherry Garden Pier.

The screening will be followed by a debate

STARTS AT 7.30 PM, Thursday 13th October

The main film is 64 mins long

Upon leaving the cinema, please make a donation to cover some of our costs and to support your film club.

Please DO NOT book a seat if you are not sure of your availability; each booking reduces the number of seats available to others. If you cannot attend, please cancel your reservation as soon as possible by going to "MY TICKETS" on the Eventbrite confirmation email: this will release your seat to someone else...

Or you can send me a message...

If the film is SOLD OUT, there will be an automated waiting list which will contact you if a seat becomes available.

Please support your club with a donation!  Thank you!
