The Northern Action Medics will be giving a 20 hour course that will teach you the basics of general First Aid, as well as skills to deal with medical situations specific to direct action, such as dealing with chemical weapons and the police. The course will involve scenarios and hands-on practice and, although we cannot offer you any official accreditation, the 2 1/2 day training is the minimum standard for membership of the Action Medics, and will equip you for a wide range of situations, from hypothermia to baton wounds.
There will be 3 or 4 hours on Friday evening and two full days on Saturday and Sunday. We are not charging to do this training but any donations towards our travel over there would be greatly appreciated. It would also be great if people can confirm if you are coming so we know how many people to prepare for.

SATURDAY, 15 AUGUST, 5-6:30PM LOCAL HOUSING CAMPAIGNS with Sarah Glynn Housmans Bookshop, 5 Caledonian Road
Sarah Glynn will be drawing on her recent book, ‘Where the Other Half Lives: lower income housing in a neoliberal world’, to analyse the impact of three decades of neoliberal economic policies that have regarded houses not primarily as homes for living in, but rather as a source of profit.
>From Hackney to Hammersmith, tenants and activists have been fighting a prolonged battle against what has become a persistent assault on the housing and housing standards of those on below average incomes. For that battle to have any chance of success it is important to know what we are up against.
Part of Housmans’ ‘London’s Burning’ series – see http://www.housmans.com/events.php
