STRIKE! Melissa Benn in conversation with Len McCluskey - January 25th 7pm


It's great to see Kensal to Kilburn Better 2023 up and running. Kensal to Kilburn have hosted many fine non-sectarian political discussions over the years but in-person meetings were limited by Covid:

We’re hosting a new event, and we’d love to see you there. Join us for STRIKE!  Melissa Benn in conversation with Len McCluskey, 25 January 2023 at 19:00.

Register soon because space is limited.

We hope you’re able to join us!


As the rich get richer, so many are taking major cuts in real income, and can’t afford food, rent and energy bills. And now Tory austerity and malfeasance have brought the NHS to collapse.

Union members saying enough is enough are in the middle of the biggest campaign of strikes in years. What hope can we find in this? Should we in Kensal & Kilburn support the strikers? If so, how?

What lessons can be learned from previous experience of strikes? How has the union movement changed, with so many women now at its forefront? Could the strike wave help force a general election?

Join writer and campaigner Melissa Benn in conversation with Len McCluskey, former leader of UK’s biggest trade union Unite, to discuss these questions and more. Plenty of time will be allowed for open discussion. Live in person, not online - free to attend!

Such a shame it clashes with Brent Trades Council AGM. Might have had a few more active trades unionists along.
