To talk and rally round

Public talks are a great way to learn about an issue and find other people who care in a non-intimidating environment. A variation on talks is a rally where people gather in a public space to hear speakers and to express their view publicly.

In Manchester I went to a TTIP talk which was part of a national speakers tour. There’s something very reassuring about a room full of other people who care without anything being demanded of you.

The four speakers each had a different angle on TTIP and there were lots of information and leaflets to give you a more in-depth understanding than any newspaper would cover.

The following day as part of the National Day of Action on TTIP there was a rally in central Market Street, complete with costumes and stilt wearing ‘CEOs’.
