Google has begun blatantly censoring left-wing sites under the excuse of removing "false news". Well-read sites such as the World Socialist Web Site have been blacklisted so they do not come up in search results. The Socialist Equality Party and International Youth and Students for Social Equality (UK) are holding this public meeting on the subject as part of a series of public meetings in the UK in opposition to Google’s censorship.

Events for Black History Month could be happening near you; 31 days poetry/open mic, art exhibitions, dance, music, seminars, drama, speakers, workshops and film. Workshops include opportunities for people of all ages, races and religious backgrounds to gather together in a safe environment to discuss and learn about everyday issues surrounding people of colour in today’s society.
