The S.A.N.E. Collective: Time’s Up for Neoliberalism

Saturday 21 April 2018

Everyone’s talking about neoliberalism, as we struggle with its discontents and contemplate its end. Glasgow-based SANE (Solidarity Against Neo-liberal Extremism) and RDM (Real Democracy Movement) offer their recent work as part of the expanding global toolkit for change. SANE launches a 10-week popular education course on neoliberalism at the CCA in May, and at this event will pilot 2 of the modules – Soul Damage & Ecocide. The RDM has been working with a range of organisations and individuals on A People’s Charter. They have also used “game theory” in working on Scenario Planning for a Corbyn-led government. And the final one of the 4 components launched at this event is a short manifesto for revolutionary change entitled “Time’s Up for Neoliberalism”.

Planning Day 28 October 2017

Towards a different future

“Towards the RDM – preparing for a Corbyn government”

Our aim is to complement the work of Labour by introducing the central issues of democracy, the state and power into the equation.  RDM supporters are holding a Planning Day on October 28. We will assess the UK’s political and constitutional crisis and develop strategies to counter the inevitable state-financial market attacks against a future Corbyn-led government. A planning group will then take the outcomes forward. It would be great to have you on board. For more details about the event, email info@realdemocracymovement.org with October 28 in the subject line. Find out more about the RDM and become a supporter here.
