Patrick’s sure got DL Wellington humming along. Next Wednesday at the Southern Cross they’ve got Andrew Little, national sec of the EPMU and the new Labour Party president along to talk about mobilising the labour movement. Should be plenty to discuss and debate.
Here’s the email:
The next Drinking Liberally Wellington is featuring newly elected Labour Party President, Andrew Little.
Andrew serves concurrently as the national secretary of the largest private-sector union, the EPMU, democratically representing fifty thousand workers.
Andrew will speak on the greater labour movement and how it can mobilise and lobby against the current National Government. We will also be hearing about the wider campaign against the 90 day bill, what roles the EMPU and the Labour Party can play in this area, and of course, where Andrew sees the future of the left going under the current government.
We’ll start at 5:30pm, Thursday March 26th, and Andrew will speak from 6pm – stick around afterwards for a drink and a chat.
