Janine will be speaking about the 1920s Poplar Rates Rebellion to introduce a session on Radical Councils. John Burgess from Barnet Unison will also speak, and there will be plenty of time for discussion.
Started as a suffragette
Became a Tory
"I had crossed the line
I was free but a stranger"

"Freedom is always
The freedom of dissenters"
They've thresholds, scabs, and if you're rude
On pickets, then they'll jail you
Perhaps their Bill may still include
Transportation to Australia
This isn't fairness as they say
Look, we know what class war is
If Tolpuddle's Martyrs were here today
They'd be mostly hating Tories
Down to Dorset for the annual three-day festival of leftiness in tribute to the Tolpuddle Martyrs.
Janine will be grabbing the mic at some point - more info to follow!
