EEFF2017: There's No Place: The American Housing Crisis and What It Means for the UK
Friday 16 June
IN A NUTSHELL
Glyn Robbins will launch his book There's No Place: The American Housing Crisis and What It Means for the UK.
Glyn will be joined by Phil Maxwell and Hazuan Hashim who will be premiering their film Austerity Fight (in which Glyn appears) immediately after the book launch. The fight for housing justice is part of the wider struggle to defend public services and working class communities which feature in both pieces of work.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Book launch (with brief readings) and conversation about the background to Glyn, Phil and Hazuan's collaboration. In the aftermath of the election of Donald Trump and a UK general election, there's never been a more important time to discuss global links of solidarity against the property developer juggernaut.
Glyn is a housing worker with a PhD in urban policy. Like Phil and Haz, he also has a long history of campaigning, particularly in Tower Hamlets and is an active trade unionist.
This event is wheelchair accessible.
