On 24 March, Young European Movement Edinburgh and the European Movement in Scotland invite you to gather to show the media, the government, and those who tell us to “get over it” that Brexit is not wanted and we will not be silenced. We are and always will be European. Come lend your support for a vision of a Europe future – we can still have it. Let’s Stop Brexit.

The last year and a half have been in complete shambles. Whatever way you voted in the referendum, this is not what was wanted. The government is ignoring the voices of those (now the majority) who are vehemently opposed to leaving the EU. 2016 was the year of the vote. 2017 was the year of stitching up the wound. 2018 will not be the year of passively accepting what the Minority Government has decided.

There is no good Brexit. We are already feeling the Brexit squeeze, and Britain is becoming less ‘Great’ by the day. Brexit has brought out the nasty side in our neighbours and is already making us poorer, more divided and neglectful of the underlying problems of our society. Many things we have so long taken for granted are now under threat because of Brexit and it’s time to call it off and go back to normal.

We need to show up and explicitly demonstrate that the anti-Brexit and pro-European sentiment is still strong in Scotland. This is our future at stake. This issue is far too big to be ignored or neglected. We need to do everything possible to show that we still care, and we are still here – protesting and ready to vote.

The march will take place in central Edinburgh at 14:00, from the Radisson Blue to the Scottish Parliament. There will be speeches and music, so come join us if you do not want to just sit there while the government is taking opportunities and freedoms away from you and your children.

Solidarity with Homeless Lone Parent Being Taken to Court by Council for “Rent Arrears” @ Leith Library

Solidarity with Homeless Lone Parent Being Taken to Court by Council for "Rent Arrears" @ Leith Library

Meet 5.45pm this Wed 21 March at Leith Library, 28-30 Ferry Rd, Edinburgh EH6 4AE
To go to Council Leader Adam McVey’s surgery which starts at 6pm

Edinburgh Coalition Against Poverty can now give more details of this Wednesdays very important solidarity call-out.

Meet 5.45pm this coming Wednesday at Leith Library to support homeless lone parent D at Council Leader Adam McVey’s surgery.  We will be insisting that the Council drop the court action against her.  Incredibly CEC are taking her to court to force her to pay 4,100 pounds in supposed rent arrears, all of which should be covered by Housing Benefit.

Because of these false “rent arrears” D and her young son were recently evicted from a Private Sector Leasing flat run by Link group under contract to the Council.  The CEC refused to pay Housing Benefit to D despite the fact that she had no income apart from paltry benefits and no significant savings.   Not content with making D and her child homeless the Council are now persecuting her via lawyers and the courts.  This is an all too common example of the Council’s contempt for working class people, denying rights and acting oppressively.  Are we going to let them away with this?

Edinburgh Claimants/ Edinburgh Coalition Against Poverty told D’s local councillors about this injustice on 13 February, and have been pursuing the issue since then.  We contacted the council leader’s office late last week.  Still they refuse to drop the court action.  When those in power will not listen to reason, we believe the most effective action is for people to join together and take action, as the North Edinburgh mums have shown in their inspiring actions over the last year.

We demand:

Cancel the court action against D, to recover supposed rent arrears
Pay full Housing Benefit and Council Tax Benefit to D for the whole period of her Link tenancy
Ensure D and her son are allocated safe secure good housing on a permanent basis

This action will definitely go ahead unless we get a written assurance from the Council that the court action against D is cancelled – watch out for email updates, which we aim to send by tuesday late afternoon/ early evening at latest.

ECAP sees actions like this as vital in giving solidarity to people at the sharp end of Edinburgh’s housing crisis, and also essential as part of the process of building a movement to assert that a good home is a right for all

Spanish Literature: The Twentieth and Twenty-First Centuries by Professor Alexis Grohmann @ Lecture Theatre G.03
May 28 @ 6:00 pm – 7:15 pm
Spanish Literature: The Twentieth and Twenty-First Centuries by Professor Alexis Grohmann @ Lecture Theatre G.03

Since the outbreak of the Civil War in 1936, Spain has experienced a series of profound transformations that have marked the trajectory of its literature to this day. This lecture will survey the changes that Spanish literature (the novel, in the main) has undergone in this historical context in order to shed light on contemporary writing, especially that of the democratic period.

In his Inaugural Lecture for the University of Edinburgh, Professor Alexis Grohmann (Chair of Contemporary Spanish Literature) will look at the challenges that Spanish literature – and those who study and teach it – face, viewed through the prism of key twentieth- and twenty-first-century developments and the trajectory of certain paradigmatic writers and genres. He will also trace the emergence of new genres, such as the newspaper column by writers.

This event is part of a series of Inaugural Lectures at the University of Edinburgh, where newly appointed Professors or Chairs give free public talks on their current and recent research. It was originally scheduled for 28th February 2018, but had to be postponed due to extreme weather.
