Sorry to say this event has been cancelled due to some of the speakers being taken ill. Apologies for any inconvenience.
“Recent history has seen police involvement growing over forms of politics that have traditionally been self-organised and grassroots led, with feminist and LGBT organisations increasingly reaching out to the police for funding and support. This event will take a critical look at historical and present partnerships between police and grassroots LGBT organisations, and ask: what are the implications of giving the police a seat at the table for grassroots organisations? Who wins and who loses from police involvement in our communities and our social movements?” A discussion led by local LGBT activists.
