Event Description

Dear Friend,

Society Syndrome are organising a Have Your Say Day this coming Wednesday, 27th June 2012 – exactly a month before the start of the Olympic Games – from 10.00am to 11.30 am in the Council Chamber, Town Hall, Mare Street, Hackney, E8 1EA. It would be great if you could attend, together with any interested older school pupils or students from your borough.

The event is aimed at students and young people, but is open to people of all ages. Those contributing will speak for two or three minutes on matters of concern, issues we expect covered include police stop and search, student fees, education maintenance allowance, housing and benefit cuts. One 17 year old pupil fromWoodford County School has already told us, she wants to talk on feminism and politics, which is fine. Those who do not wish to speak can listen to, or join in the discussion; councillors, teachers and others are also welcome to put their views. Diane Abbott, MP, the Shadow Health Minister, will speak at the beginning of the event. In addition

· BBC and ITN news have been invited to attend; the best contributions – which must be non racist – should be widely reported.
· Speakers Corner – our bedrock of democracy and free speech – will stage special filmed contributions from groups such as Fathers 4 Justice
· National newspapers, currently being carefully scrutinised by the Leveson Inquiry, will be asked to provide a page for a range of views from different contributors
· Schools can stage their own debates or discussions

Many speakers will be young, but there will be time for people of all ages to speak on any issue they wish. Below is a recent blog I wrote on the subject, I’m attaching a flyer, please let me know if you need any more.

If you wish to stage a similar event in Haringey or take an active part in Society Syndrome, please contact me. The website iswww.societysyndrome.co.uk

Kind regards

Michael
