2. Stefanie Krasnow (Adbusters) No-Mo Manifesto https://www.adbusters.org/magazine/110/nomo-manifesto.html

3. Roberto Unger: The Labour Party and the British Alternative http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rJq8VImEBTc&feature=c4-overview-vl&list=PLNdEBvVYMvsC3-vpYQRy_myLYbTKKAmUQ

Addtional paper suggested:  Bowman, A. et al (2013)  Business Elites and Undemocracy in Britain: a work in progress  http://www.cresc.ac.uk/sites/default/files/WP125%20Business%20Elites%20and%20Undemocracy%20in%20Britain_0.pdf

Also, if you haven’t seen the film ‘Five Broken Cameras’ yet, it is on BBC iplayer untill 8 April. It is a deeply moving and deeply disturbing account of life in a West Bank village and the effect of Israeli settlements – not to be missed!  http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b03x3yfk

  1. Yes! I will be here. Are we meeting in the Glen or in the Arts Center? Can I suggest the latter so that I may selfishly make it to yoga beforehand?

  2. Earlier we agreed ‘Unless we change particular events for any reason, in general we’ll meet in the Glen (Glengower Hotel) on the seafront in Aberystwyth at 6pm’. It doesn’t mean we can’t change the location, only that it may be confusing at such short notice? Personally, I struggle with the noise at the Arts Centre, when we are more than three or four people. What do others think?

  3. True enough. Let’s stick with the Glen to avoid confusion. I shall now promote the meeting because these readings are fab!

  4. Is there a meeting tonight and if so can you remind me of the time and place. With apologies Tom
