The School of Democratic Socialism (SDS) will be holding two separate (but related) meetings on Friday, June 15, at the Aspect Court building [Room 15104] of Sheffield Hallam University.
Aspect Court is on Pond Hill, which runs past the bus Interchange, down
towards the ring road and railway line. There will be an afternoon
seminar at 14.00 hours on the question of Money and Finance: the
Economic Crisis. John Halsteadl has prepared a brief paper to provide a
focus for the discussion. Allowing for a break, the afternoon session
should end by 16.30 at the latest.
This will be followed in the evening, at 19.00, by Linda McAvan, MEP,
speaking on The Future of Europe, under the SDS general theme of 'there
has to be a better way forward!'.
This is in advance the SDS preparing its programme for 2012-13. The two
themes are related and require a greater political response than we seem
to be getting from the political parties. There will be ample
opportunity for you to express your views and we hope you can attend.
Please feel free to pass this information on to anyone who may be
