Special showing of a film by Ken Loach: The Spirit of 1945
This documentary shows how, in 1945, a Britain battered by five years of war built a Welfare State and National Health Service which was the envy of the world. Now that precious legacy is under threat from privatisation. Please come along, see the film and then discuss how we can keep our NHS public.
Organised by Tameside Keep Our NHS Public. TamesideKONP@gmail.com
6.30pm-9.00pm Mossley Community Centre , Roughtown Road, Mossley OL5 0SG Free

The initiative for the Campfire originated at the Latin America Day School in January. The Campfire is an attempt at weaving a social fabric in Manchester through sharing stories of resistance. The theme of the first meeting will be ‘Peace.’ During the little school the compas asked one thing of us: Organize! Let’s do it, and let’s make sure that we organize with a texture that sustains and resists.
7pm, The Yard, Hulme. More information to follow.

Manchester Film Co-operative would like to invite you to a screening of the Spanish historical drama Libertarias.
Set in 1936, Maria, a young nun is recruited by Pilar, a militant feminist, into an anarchist militia following the onset of the Spanish Civil War. Guided by the older woman, Maria is exposed to the realities of war and revolution, and comes to question her former, sheltered life. While fully immersed in the overall enthusiasm of revolutionary Spain, Pilar and friends find themselves fighting against deep gender inequality which complicates their efforts in the war against Francisco Franco’s Nationalist/Fascist/Catholic forces.
Time Out said that the film “deserves praise for its feminist perspective on the course of the 1936-7 revolution, when women’s liberation was a logical, if hardly well-recognised, constituent of the libertarian ideals that the Spanish working class rose up to assert.”
Doors at 7pm, the film to begin at 7:30pm. Admission: £3 waged, £2 unwaged/student. Venue: The Kings Arms, Bloom Street, Salford.
