Hi everyone, Thank you for working so hard to build the People’s Assembly, we really appreciate everything you are doing.
Priorities this week: The massive protests in the US over Floyd George and the response of President Trump is sparking solidarity protests everywhere. This week we have published our statement that should be shared.
Making Sense of the Crisis Please promote the Thursday night broadcast which will be completely different in format this week.
The youth take over – is what it says! Young PA supporters have organised it themselves and will give voice to what is making young people angry.Here’s the event link to post on pages we perhaps haven’t thought about before.
Schools We need to keep up the pressure on by supporting the NEU position on safe opening of schools in the run up to June 15th. Our ‘It’s Not The School Run’ event streamed at 8am on Monday was very successful.Please keep promoting the posters for printouts.
Newsletters These are so important in keeping in touch withour supporters.Do you use Mailchimp to send out your newsletters – would you like to ? Please get in touch as we are preparing a video tutorial and would like a group without mailchimp to use as the demo.
We have added an automatic newsletter sign up to the top of the National Facebook page and the Manchester People’s Assembly page. And it works !! Again if you want to know how to do this get in touch. It means we can keep adding to our email lists while broadcasting digital meetings.
Don’t forget the ACTIVISTS SCHOOL on June 20th – get the date out there – registration is opening shortly.
Lastly, please send us stories of what your group is up to so we can share with other local groups.
