From the battle to keep common land to women campaigning for the vote, from mutinous sailors to the fight against racism, the past struggles of local people are a source of huge inspiration and interest.

Dorset Socialists meeting Saturday – CHAOS IN IRAQ: the bitter fruits of imperialism.
Saturday 4th October, 1.30pm at the Colliton Club (opposite County Hall), Dorchester.
“Iraq is in a mess, and the Western leaders, who have been in effective charge since the invasion of 2003, have no idea of what to do about it. A region of relative wealth and prosperity, with above average women’s rights for the region and minimal sectarian conflict has been turned into its polar opposite.
An admittedly repressive dictatorship has been replaced by a Shia regime which is entrenched in sectarianism and up to its neck in corruption. And all under the supposedly liberating Western occupation. The naked pursuit of oil profits has plunged the whole country into a crisis which threatens those very same petrochemical interests, and threatens to drag us all back to a boots on desert fighting was. A renewed war can only make matters worse.
Join us to discuss what is to be done.”
