Some thoughts on campaigning to save our Crown Post Office

This Tuesday morning on the way to work, I heard our MP, Amber Rudd, on the Today programme talk about the Suffragettes and how important it was that women campaigned so hard to get the vote. She fought shy of agreeing that those women who had undergone prison sentences for their actions should be pardoned, but she supported the Votes for Women activists who lobbied for something that they believed was important for a fair and democratic society. Erica Smith contemplates public protest.

A peaceful mission and vision

With the subject of Palestine and Israel very much in the news since US President Trump’s announcement that America will recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, there will be a chance for people in Hastings to hear a first-hand account of a recent visit to Palestine made by a St Leonards woman, Leah Levane. John Enefer writes.

News from the refugee frontline in Calais

The Jungle camp in Calais was broken up and its inhabitants dispersed in 2016, but not surprisingly that did not mean that the many refugees and asylum-seekers looking to enter the UK disappeared. Clare Moseley, co-founder of Care4Calais, is coming to Hastings to talk about the current situation, as Felicity Laurence of Hastings Supports Refugees explains.
