We Can Win: stories from 50 years of struggle
Date(s) - 14/01/2014
6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
FREE EVENT: Film launch
Tuesday 14 January at 6.30pm – 9pm
Rich Mix, 35-47 Bethnal Green Road, London E1 6LA
These ten moving and often funny short films document a proud 50 year history of campaigning, strikes, occupations, work ins and solidarity in the name of fair pay, decent jobs, and economic justice. The films are made up of interviews with key organisers, speaking about the tactics they used, what was successful, what wasn’t, and where they see the struggle for economic justice going today.
The film night will also feature a discussion with the film maker and speakers from the 3 Cosas campaign, student strike solidarity, and South London Anti-Fascists, all talking about how social justice activists today can learn from the lessons of other movements past and present.

The films have been produced by Jubilee Debt Campaign for the Economic Justice Project, which aims to provide opportunities for people to learn about the basics of economics and the financial crisis, vital tools for social and economic justice activists. It also brings people together who have similar aims, but don’t usually work together. From global justice campaigners, to anti-cuts activists, there has never been a better time to recognise what we share and how we can strengthen each other’s work.
Manchester launch: There will be a second launch event at the People’s History Museum in Manchester on Saturday 26 April (exact details TBC).
