    Hello – seeing as it looks like there will be a general election in the autumn sometime, please can I ask you to do everything in your control to see that a Remain Alliance candidate is fielded in Camberwell & Peckham, and that the progressive vote is not split?

    The climate emergency is a huge issue, and it absolutely cannot be dealt with adequately outside the EU, and it cannot gain enough political traction all the while parliament is jammed up trying to resolve Brexit. Therefore, I would ABSOLUTELY rather lend my vote to a party that I wouldn’t normally vote for in order to maximise the chances of remaining in the EU, on the understanding that the issues I want addressed will not be looked after if regressive parties capitalise on a split Remain vote and sail through the middle to win a majority.

    Please could you let me know what discussions and plans are happening in regard to this?

    Many thanks,

    I am writing on behalf of IARS International Institute, an independent research organisation working in the areas of youth, justice and equality. We are holding our 7th annual IARS International Conference on 16-17th of July 2019, at Lewisham Southwark College (LSC). I am contacting you to extend an invitation for you to attend our Conference. Alternatively, we would be grateful if you could disseminate this information about our conference within your network.

    The persistence of the economic crisis coupled with social inequalities has led to a deepening alienation of young people, a decline of social values and reduced belief in bottom-up social change. In light of this challenge, the 2019 IARS conference is focusing on “European youth leading the way for employment & education”.

    We are expecting 100 students (many from disadvantages backgrounds); we are reaching out to high schools and colleges from Southeast London. This is a CDP accredited, EU-funded event and free for students, educators and youth workers. We hope they will benefit from the presentations and other services offered, but we also want them to learn about other support available for them on a medium/long term basis. We are not charging anything for a permanent space and the conference.

    The event will focus on projects aimed at alternative pathways for self-sustainability for early school leavers (day 1) and youth and social entrepreneurship (day 2). There will be interactive workshops where students and educators can express their concerns to representatives from the House of Commons, British Council and other relevant agencies. They will also access free cv checks, interact with young entrepreneurs who will offer advice, attend workshops on business planning and social enterprise, etc.

    The conference has been independently certified as conforming to universally accepted Continuous Professional Development (CPD) guidelines (30 CPD learning points). Young people attending or being involved in the conference will receive a YouthPass Certificate.

    If you are interested in participating or attending please contact

    If you have further questions please do not hesitate to contact me back.

    Best regards,

    Hi – there is a development on our block of flats (Surrey Quays, SE8 5DY) which involves removing the existing trees in the communal garden. Can you offer advice on how to challenge the proposed tree-felling?

    Dear Southwark Green Party,

    Hope this finds you well.

    I’m emailing from Novae Theatre, who are staging their new show DON’T LOOK AWAY at the Pleasance Theatre. The show opens tomorrow (7th May) and plays until 18th May.

    This powerful, timely production is about one family’s experience of the international refugee crisis and explores the impact of the UK’s ‘hostile environment’ on those who witness it. Grace Chapman, the show’s playwright, was inspired by her family’s own experience of hosting asylum seekers in their home.

    There are two post show talks within the run with different charities supporting asylum seekers and refugees. The cast and crew will be joined by Jo Cobley (Director of Young Roots) on 15th May and Sara Nathan OBE (Co-founder of Refugees at Home) on 16th May.

    We would love to reach out to audiences with an interest in this area, particularly those who are interested in the way that the current political system is affecting the issues around immigration. I wondered if the Southwark Labour branch would be able to spread the word within your networks?

    If you’re able to include information about the show in a newsletter, e-bulletin or on social media, or take a few leaflets for members at a future meeting, we would love to offer your networks a discount code – quote SANCTUARY for 20% off full price tickets. I have included some information and sample tweets below, and you can book tickets here:

    Best wishes,


    About the Show:

    2015. A young Syrian man enters a community centre, covered in flour and looking for help. He finds Cath, a cleaner, who reluctantly lets him stay in her son’s room. A split second decision which will change her life forever.

    DON’T LOOK AWAY is a powerful new production from NOVAE theatre, sister company to internationally renowned ensemble Idle Motion. Directed by Nicholas Pitt (Mistero Buffo, Underbelly and Arcola Theatre, Winner of the Stage Award for Acting Excellence) and written by Grace Chapman (It’s Not A Sprint, Pleasance Edinburgh and VAULT Festival) this is daring theatre inventive in it’s form and astonishing in it’s delivery. A critical tale of compassion and an investigation into our collective response to the international refugee crisis.

    DON’T LOOK AWAY has just completed a small national tour and is made with support from Cornerstone, Harrogate Theatre, The Civic, Birmingham Hippodrome and Pleasance Theatre.

    Sample Social Posts:

    New show #DontLookAway from ★★★★★ @NovaeTheatre uses the story of one family to explore our collective response to the international refugee crisis. Plays until 18th May @ThePleasance Islington:

    What action can be taken to publicise the fact that Southwark Council has decided to discourage residents from recycling green waste by levying a charge for those of us who do it ? Are they so stupid that they don’t realise many people will now put their green waste in black bin liners in the general waste ? My guess is that they know this will happen but they want to minimise the amount of waste they need to process for recycling.

    Air pollution is killing us and costing the UK billions. We all know this.

    We can reduce air pollution and save lives by encouraging companies and their employees to adopt greener transport in a way that does not need expensive infrastructure, costly enforcement departments, and without the need to raise taxes.

    Everybody wins

    Make walking and cycling have the same reimbursement allowance for business travel as motor cycles; which is currently 24p/mile.

    Hi there,

    I am a resident of southwark and am considering starting a branch of extinction rebellion based in the borough. I was wondering if you were aware of any plans to do this in affiliation with the Green Party? I want to ensure I’m not duplicating plans.

    I’m contacting you from Extinction Rebellion, a major direct action campaign set to begin this November. Our demands to the government are simple. We want UK carbon emissions reduced to ZERO and the global ecological overshoot decreased to half a planet by 2025. We want the reversal of policies and practices that are causing the sixth mass extinction of life on this planet. And, we want a national citizens’ assembly to be formed to implement these demands. This crisis is not just environmental or economic – it is political.

    From the 12th November onwards, we will block roads, do sit-ins, graffiti walls and occupy buildings, all of it peacefully and non-violently. Many of us will get arrested and even go to prison, clogging up the justice system. With small direct actions, every participant counts, even a small group. This isn’t something the government or the media will be able to ignore. We will also need people for non-arrestable action and behind-the-scenes organisation.

    If this is in line with your group’s/organisation’s values, then these are the ways you could support us:

    Share the event pages of our direct actions with all your members through social media and email.

    Endorse XR officially and organise an autonomous event with your own group/organisation on the days of direct action.

    We would love to have a chat with you about ways our groups could liaise. Please reply to this email or come to our next networking meeting on the 18th October ( ).

    If you want to find out more, check out our facebook page ( and twitter account @ExtinctionR (

    Thank you for any support you can give.

    Resident Services Officer Kingsley Omankhanlen is proposing to REMOVE ESTATE RECYCLE BINS. Estate residents can vote Yes to support the proposal or No to keep the bins except:

    “where no response is received it would be deemed that you are in favour” Kingsley (11 July 2018).

    This is grossly undemocratic people were given 2 weeks to respond. We all know that council estate tenants and residents have a high non-respondence rate. Many on the estate are not happy as recycling facilities are their right and about to be removed at influential residents whim and distaste.

    Yours faithfully, BoB Downer

    Hello, I am a green party member and have done a little bit of campaigning for you in the past. I have set up a brand new food initiative called Third Space Canteen. It aims to bring people together over food and the planet. Until I can find a permanent venue, I run Supper Clubs. I’m just wondering if I could drop off some leaflets at your office as I live very close to the Biscuit Factory and I think some of you might be interested in coming along.

    Do let me know and also who I should ask for if I come to the office.

    I am part of the new SOS Peckham Campaign group. We are seeking southwark council to rethink and revise the proposed development of the former Queens Road Day centre, called QR4. At current QR4 will result in increased density and massing for a Mega council office block. Estimates are 400 staff and 1000 public visitors a week, with hours of operation to include weekends and late hrs on weeknights.

    We are seeking Southwark Greens advice and support. In particular

    1. Demand the council pause the development and reduce the massing caused by QR4

    2.Demand a biodiversity study for the site ( home to large and mature trees and a sizeable garden) and that a bat survey is performed before the proposed 18/06/2018 demolition date.

    3. Request a Air Pollution impact study for the surrounding Queens Road area. Following studies in Camberwell, New cross and Deptford have lead to public/ political awareness raised.

    4. Six offices across southwark are to be consolidated into the single QR4 site. To request the Council to disclose sale proceeds.

    Kind Regards

    Dear Madam & Sirs,

    I am writing to you to support the proposal that Southwark Council should seek to acquire the freehold of the Champion Hill stadium with the object of securing the future of Dulwich Hamlet Football Club.

    I am sure your readers are only too aware of the perfidy, avarice, venality and duplicity of the current owners of the site. Their actions this week, breaking many, if not all, previous agreements with the board of both the football club itself, and the board of the supporter’s trust, not to mention the absurd & ridiculous farce of seeking to deny the football club the right to use the name Dulwich Hamlet, are but the latest in a long series of lies & betrayals.

    I am not going to recap at length the achievements of the football club in establishing a model for all clubs to follow in becoming a genuine pillar of the local community – they are too numerous to mention – but I will say that if Southwark loses the services of Gavin Rose, the club’s football manager, it will be a huge loss to the borough, and if you want to examine the length & depth of the club’s commitment to giving hope & help to the disadvantaged local youth, I ask you to consult Kevin Holland, former local community police officer, for his recollections of the role the club has played in this.

    Personally, as a recent emigré from north London, and former season ticket holder at Arsenal F.C. no longer able to afford to attend, I was delighted by my first visit to see Dulwich Hamlet play at Champion Hill. I have since become a regular attendee, and also volunteered to help with match-day stewarding, and operate the turnstiles.

    My girlfriend’s son also attends with his friends, and likewise has undertaken volunteer stewarding, which I feel was very useful for his self-confidence and experience.

    In my view, to characterise the fan-base of the club as ‘hipsters’ is simplistic & insulting. The fan-base is as broad in age, gender, race & demographic as the borough itself, and all the cheap cracks about craft beer and sauerkraut are obscuring the truth: Dulwich Hamlet is very much part of the borough’s community, and all Southwark residents can be proud of it, and should do everything they can to support it. I therefore urge you to do likewise, as, I am confident, you already intend to do.

    Sincerely yours,

    William Chidley

    I emailed Neil Coyle, the local MP in regards to my huge concerns about what is going on in Syria-Afrin with Turkey’s invasion there. I asked him to make some noise and bring to attention the suffering and destruction Turkey is causing, videos are appearing of war crimes and civilians being killed and even executed on camera.

    He repeated essentially what Boris Johnson said and that Turkey’s “securing its borders”, almost legitimizing this attack on another countries land and causing death and destruction for their racist interests.

    The United Kingdom current government staying silent because of Brexit, desperate to sell weapons to Turkey (who enquires to buy simply to keep the UK quiet).

    I want to know if you can stand up and be a voice in matters like this, so the next person we (my family) votes for actually voices my concerns.
