Apart from that, here are some other dates for your diary.

  • Tomorrow night is the next Jacobin reading group meeting on Neoliberalism. 7pm in Bilgasaray. You can find the texts here.
  • On Sunday we‘ll be having our monthly organising meeting to plan the activities of our group. These meetings are open to anyone who‘s interested, but as we‘re trying to get some consistency in our organising, we‘d prefer the people who come to commit to most of the meetings. Contact us for the address and time.
  • On 16-17 June we‘ll be having our annual retreat in the countryside in the Naturfreunde Haus in Hermsdorf. More information soon, but save the date, and watch this Website
