Culture of Resistance, 15th February at The Green Dragon


Press Release Immediate:


The Green Dragon’s (1) Tuesday acoustic night, Freedom of Expression, will be highlighting a special campaign called ‘Culture of Resistance’ on 15th February. The gig is part of a series of weeklong events being organised across the country to raise awareness of the simple fact that, “we are not all in this together.”

The series of events from the 14th February to the 19th February, including concerts and film screenings as well as protests and demonstrations, has been called by Coalition of Resistance(2)

The organisers state:

“Culture of Resistance is an opportunity to rally together everyone in Croydon who cannot comprehend why we’re embarking on these savage cuts when the state owned RBS bank will pay out £1 billion in bonuses to its top bankers. We’re all scratching our heads wondering how the speculators and tax dodgers are simply not paying for this crisis. Instead, we’re are seeing libraries close, services being axed and jobs being lost.”

“We need to start a resistance to these cuts that will affect the most vulnerable in our society. “

The event at the Green Dragon (3) showcases acoustic music, poetry, magic and comedy from talented local artists. Information will be available about the first major demonstration this year organised by the TUC. The show commences at 8pm.
