Film: Still the Enemy Within

Sun, 9pm, Clarke

This film offers a unique insight

into one of British history’s most

dramatic events: the 1984-85

Miners’ Strike.

There are no professional

“experts” and no politicians on

display. Instead, thirty years on, this

is the raw first-hand experience of

those who lived through Britain’s

longest strike and inspired acts of

solidarity around the world.

These are the people that

Margaret Thatcher labelled “the

Enemy Within”. Many of them have

never spoken on camera before.

Where next after the EU

referendum?

Sun, 4.15pm, Jeffery

Marxism takes place just a week

after the EU referendum. We know

the Tories will tear strips off each

other, but how else will the political

landscape be transformed?

Are the EU’s

days numbered?

Challenging Islamophobia

and Prevent

Sun, 2.30pm, Jeffery

When they’re not busy scapegoating

refugees, mainstream politicians

and the media are whipping up

Islamophobia. This panel meeting

discusses how we can resist.
