THE PLAN: " This is an amazing story that needs to be told."















The crowdfunding site is now open for a new film - THE
 PLAN that came from the bottom up - about the inspiring 1970s Lucas Aerospace workers Alternative Plan to shift from arms manufacture to socially useful and environmentally
 sustainable production. 
 https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-plan-community/x/11054043#/

 You can watch the trailer there, see what we need the funds for and also info about this feature length film

 Please support and share it far & wide so the film can be released in October and make a contribution to sowing the seeds for many more such plans. 

Many Thanks   

 “This film will capture a unique moment in our history - highly skilled workers showing how to turn swords into ploughshares. It is a vital lesson for us now, as

 Labour leaders ask questions about common ownership, what we produce and who benefits from the products. We can be inspired by the Lucas workers, by their foresight and imagination. Please support this film, see it, promote it and
 discuss it. If we want to transform society, this is a good
 place to start.” Ken Loach, Director & Political Activist

 "Those who make nuclear submarines can perfectly well make medical equipment, wind farms and tidal barriers for
 alternative sources of energy. People can move from
 destructive to constructive work - hospitals, homes and schools - if there is political will and imagination. We need more of both right now".
 Bruce Kent, Vice President Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament 

 " This is an amazing story that needs to be told. Britain still
 ploughs huge amounts of resource - both human and financial - into the arms trade, when we really should be diversifying our economy urgently. I really look forward to seeing this film - and celebrating the Lucas Plan story"
 Caroline Lucas MP, Co-Leader of the Green Party

‘Unsung Hero – The Jack Jones Story’ is a documentary on one of the greatest British figures of the past century –
a man who exercised more power over government economic policy than any other trades union leader in British history.
Jones took on four of the great evils of modern times: poverty, fascism, worker exploitation and pensioner poverty - and took them on with so much conviction that at one point,
the public voted him the most powerful man in Britain. The life of Jack Jones mirrors the story of the 20th century - a man whose like we may never see again.

Bromley Green Party at against Racism demo 9/6/2018


There were 15.000 fascists in Whitehall and only 200 Stand Up to Racism campaigners.

The police really protected us and helped us safely to the underground.

At Lewisham Mosque there were some excellent speeches and solidarity, but there was no opposition

Was proud to represent Bromley Green Party.
