Hello Friends,

Welcome to the Brighton People's Assembly April newsletter.

Our monthly Brighton People's Assembly meeting is now on 3rd Monday of every month.

However, this month the 3rd Monday   falls on Bank Holiday, so we have arranged to meet on   Tuesday 18 April 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm instead at the Duke of Wellington, Upper Gloucester Road, Brighton ( .

Our meetings are informal and we aim to create an atmosphere where everyone feels able to contribute.  We discuss alternatives to austerity, develop action plans, campaigns and support other groups.  All are welcome to contribute and help organise. Please visit our website if you want to check out our aims. (

Thanks for reading and we hope to see you soon.

Ken Montague was a popular and very active participant in Brighton People's Assembly.  Ken sadly passed on last last year.
In keeping with Ken’s expressed wishes, his funeral was a small, private affair for family, close friends and representatives of groups he campaigned with. A larger number of people wanted to acknowledge his political life, and his widow Janet, children Brendan, Kate and Alex and comrades in Brighton, warmly invite you to celebrate Ken’s life-long contribution to the wider struggle.
The celebration will take place on  29^th April,Hanover Room, Brighthelm Centre, North Road,  Brighton BN1 1YD.

** Speakers will include:
* Hannah Barker - Chair
* Sabby Sagall – SWP, and long-time friend
* Phil Mellows - SWP Brighton
* Jonathan Neale - Campaign against Climate Change

It's very important that those wishing to attend RSVP to Davy Jones ( by Monday 24 April so that Janet (Ken's widow) can know who to expect.
