Why TTIP & CETA are the tip of the iceberg.
Governments have signed thousands of bilateral treaties (BITS) that give corporations the right to sue states at secretive international tribunals if their profits are threatened. For decades most cases were against poor countries – but now rich states are being sued too. Investigative journalist Claire Provost will explain the threat BITs pose to progressive politics – and how social movements around the world are fighting back.

In 1939, as Poland falls under the shadow of the Nazis and the world goes to war, young Alma Belasco's parents send her overseas to live with an aunt and uncle in their opulent San Francisco mansion. There she meets Ichimei Fukuda, the son of the family's Japanese gardener, and between them a tender love blossoms, but following Pearl Harbor the two are cruelly pulled apart. Throughout their lifetimes, Alma and Ichimei reunite again and again, but theirs is a love they are forever forced to hide from the world.
Join us for an evening of live music & dance in celebration of Reading’s twin town of San Francisco Libre with Sheffield’s finest Latin American folk dance group. Upstairs bar is provided by the Global Cafe.
