Solfed discussion in Newcastle 10-9-11

Comrades!

Just to make you aware of the forthcoming discussion being held in Newcastle as part of West Yorkshire Solidarity Federation's 2011 Speaking Tour.

We've set up a temporary site in order to keep people updated.
https://sites.google.com/site/solfedtour2011

The event is being held upstairs in *The Telegraph*, Forth Street, Newcastle
NE1 3NY on Saturday, September 10th and starts 2pm till 4pm.

You can contact us via the site or solfedtour2011 [AT] gmail.com

We hope to see you there!

Admin: moved to announcements forum.

I've moved this to the appropriate forum (as its not really a news article). Good stuff for getting this sorted!

Good stuff! Hope it goes well and that we also have a new local in the city soon.

SolFed's site is acting up on me, are y'all promoting this on West York's webpage?

Good luck, btw. What's the content of the talk?

I guess it will go on the WY site - and hopefully the national too. Edinburgh eh? Sounds like a plan to me. smile

I'll publicise this on our Facebook and twitter pages as well.

There's a new Solfed local on the horizon in Glasgow so might be a good idea to have a meeting there too?

Is this a solfed recruitment thing? If so, I'll give it a miss but if it's more than that, please let us know what else to expect. thanks.

Hmm...the impression I got (not involved in organising it in any way) is that the goal of the speaking tour is setting up new SF group, but I imagine much of that will be focusing around SF's workplace and community strategy and what we've been getting up to lately. Lots of room for discussion there in any case.

What's your concern?

It's a discussion about the cuts, anarcho-syndicalism, the role of the solfed, a few pints - there's a soft play area outside or anyone who's worried in case they end up joining solfed. laugh out loud

(I've sent you a PM)

Not really a concern, more I could save myself a journey as I don't want to join solfed. If there's more then that's great. Been years since I was in the Telegraph so probably have a gander.

Sounds like a buffet thief to me! To tell the truth, and not wanting to sound unfriendly, it's all solfed stuff and if it's not your bag, you're probably wasting your time. [note to self: next time put a magician on].

Well if you come to Glasgow and Edinburgh, happy to send invites to folk about Edinburgh. If you do come through, let us know via the local SF members or direct at the Edinburgh AF email address.

Thanks for your honesty. But tell me, what exactly will you be having on the buffet?

Birthday cake for me, comrade! Then beers after. But come along; I see you were in TAG and AFA, I dare say you'll know people there and you're very welcome.
