Here's a piece on Ethel Mannin. For those of you who don't know her, her novels and writings from the 1920s-1950s are especially worth digging out. She supported A S Neil and Summerhill, the CNT-FAI in Spain and wrote a novel about the life of Emma Goldman, as well as exploring all sorts of radical ideas. Here at KSL we think that "No More Mimosa" is one of her best. Have a read and then hit the used bookstores (they are still there you know!!!)
This handbook explains why the regeneration of council estates often results in established communities being broken up and moved away, and housing becoming more expensive. It is designed to help local communities learn about gentrification and the alternatives they can fight for. Through the experiences of council tenants, leaseholders and the wider community in London, it contains ideas, stories, tools and resources.
The Royal College of Nursing (RCN) represents most of the nurses employed within the NHS and has a membership of over 400,000. It started life as a ‘professional’ organisation for nurses, promoting excellence in practice, before registering as a ‘trade union’ in 1976. Scratch the surface of this grubby, conservative, false-flag operation, and you will see it is not a ‘trade union’ by any understanding of the term.
