Janine will be giving an illustrated talk about Minnie Lansbury - East End Suffragette, socialist, school teacher, champion of the victims of war, rebel councillor and my hero! as the guest speaker at the monthly meeting of the East London History Society.
Meeting in Brussels, the European Transport Workers' Federation Women's Committee will share information and reports from women trade unionists across Europe's countries and transport sectors, and agree on a publicity campaign to tackle violence against women transport workers - it's not part of the job!
Check back after the event for Janine's report.
ONLY YOU can save this kid
ONLY YOU and your three quid
- But think how many kids we'd save
- If all that unpaid tax were paid
A poem about the Curiosity rover detecting a methane burp - a possible indication of life - on Mars:
A methane burp
A gaseous gurgle
A bacterial belch of life suggestion
Surfacing from Mars' digestion
No little green men
No Clangers, no Borg
No rich man, no poor man struggling 'neath that rose sky
No sign of a lawman beating up the wrong guy
A statement from Janine Booth and Becky Crocker:
We are publishing this statement because false allegations have been made against us in public and we feel that we have no choice but to put the record straight.
On 11 October 2014, I was the guest speaker at the Disability Conference of the Communication Workers' Union (CWU), held in Leeds. I addressed the conference about Autism in the Workplace, and got great feedback from delegates!
