Discussing Class with Owen Jones, Author of 'Chavs'

Chavs bookOwen Jones, author of 'Chavs: the demonisation of the working class' will be speaking about his book following the Stratford no.1 RMT branch meeting on Thursday 8 September. All RMT members welcome. Buffet provided.

Venue: Leytonstone & District ex-Servicemens Club, Harvey Road, Leytonstone, E11 3BD. (Map.) - Five minutes from Leytonstone underground station.

Owen says, “Denying class has proved all-too-convenient in ignoring the concerns of working-class people. We don’t talk about the fact that people from unskilled backgrounds are ten times more likely to be unemployed than professional people or that five million working-class people are languishing on social housing waiting lists. Nothing makes sense without class. If we don’t talk about it, millions will remain disenfranchised, marginalised and ignored. Thatcherism closed the national debate on class: now is the time to re-open it.”
