Protest and the Law

This is footage of speeches at a rally on April 18th 2009.

In January, John had spoken at a 500 strong demo in Portsmouth, against the bombing of Gaza by Isreal. The police arrested and charged him with organising a demonstration without asking their permission.

On the morning of the trial, there was a rally of about 30 friends and supports outside the courts, where John was asked to speak.

The trial was adjourned, on the grounds that the judicial process had become "compromised" by political arguments.

What Would Socialism Look Like?

This is an audio recording of a public meeting on April 2nd 2009, on "What Would Socialism Look Like?".

John Molyneux outlines what a future socialist society might look like, then there questions and discussion from the floor, and finally John summarises the issues, giving his answers to the questions.

This was intended to be a video record of the event, but there were serious problems synchronising the audio stream with the video. As time was short, it was decided to publish as audio only.

Discussion begins at roughly the 30 minute mark, and John's summing up at 55. This is an experiment, and somewhat rough. If it works, we'll do more, and get it better.
