As a community organisation, we believe it is important for our community to consider issues that affect us from our own perspective. We are providing the space for discussions and debates. We invite a wide range of African (Black) and other speakers to share their knowledge and join us in the discussions. We particularly encourage young people to attend and participate.
African Liberation Day - Saturday 25th May (2pm-8pm):

There are too many corrupt Governments in Africa...
What can we do about them?
What is the alternative?
Build the progressive movements?
Unity of Africa = Pan-Africanism under a liberated socialist government!
What is the cause of the increase in street violence among our young people?
Is it poverty; broken families; drugs; lack of police?
Who is supplying the guns? Why don't the police deal with those buying the drugs?
