Cuts Café has left the building, but the below is still relevant!
Guest blogging on this site
We want the discussions, on building resistance to the cuts and exploring real alternatives, that happening in the physical Cuts Cafe space to be as accessible as possible. People who can’t get to our space should still be heard. So why not write something for our blog?
Whether of your experience of the cuts, from your workplace, from your involvement in anti-cuts activism, from your academic study, or your personal interest, we want to hear from you. Veteran bloggers and people new to writing for the internet, all welcome.
We want pieces that are interesting and thought-provoking, that ask questions, share answers and plan action.
What is happening in our schools, in our hospitals, on the streets, in our homes, in our prisons, in refuges, in corporate boardrooms, in our workplaces? How is the resistance continuing and changing? How can we make the ‘movement’ wider, more accessible and inclusive, more resilient, more vigorous? How can we maintain a focus on real and possible radical alternatives while reacting to policies which are having immediate impacts on the most vulnerable people? What will it take for the TUC demo on October 20th to have the greatest impact possible? And where do we go from there?
How can the space the Cuts Café will provide help develop and support resistance to the cuts?
If you have something to say in response to any of these questions, or any better questions to ask, the Cuts Cafe wants to provide a place to share it – in our space when it opens, and now, during, and afterwards, on our blog.
Submissions should be a maximum of 500 words. Anonymous or named authored pieces welcomed. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have ideas, or just email your piece in (saying whether you want to be named or not) with “GUEST BLOG” in the subject line.
