The ‘new municipalism’: what does  it mean for Birmingham? Thur 28 Nov 5-7pm

West Midlands New Economics Group

Open meeting: BFOE Warehouse 54 Allison St, B5 5TH

‘A Rebirth of Municipal Socialism’ is the claim in ‘Building a Better Birmingham: Labour’s Local Manifesto 2018-2022’, published for the 2018 May Council elections.

John McDonnell has praised the ‘Preston model’ and launched Labour’s new Community Wealth Building Unit. It’s part of a global movement by towns and cities to create an alternative to neo-liberalism. 

What does this mean for Birmingham? Richard Hatcher will be introducing a discussion looking at the policies, the claims and the evidence.

 All welcome.
