SMC_MCR: Exploring the #Occupy movement, 1 November at Matt & Phreds

This Tuesday, 1 November sees November’s SMC_MCR take place, and we’re looking at one of the most interesting, and perhaps the most important, social developments of the year – the #Occupy movement.

From OccupyWallSt to the protests around the world that have followed, we’ll look at what has spurred this new type of protest to form, where it could lead and what it means for the future of society. Panelists will include the University of Salford’s Helen Keegan, whose work explores the impact of online networks. More panelists are to be confirmed.

Please sign up to our Lanyrd event page to confirm your attendance (so we have an idea of numbers). See you there!

Venue: Matt & Phreds, Tib Street, Manchester, M4 1LW

Doors, 6pm, starts 6.30pm
