A short note to highlight that Newsnight on BBC2 last night ran the story about the training of community organisers. They covered some of our last day at Trafford Hall, followed Perry O’Brien – one of the other London organisers – to Canning Town and invited Nick Hurd to answer questions about the programme. Worth watching in the next few days whilst it is available online. The community organiser item starts about 17 minutes in.
Whilst we are talking about film on community organisers, Locality have issued two short films about the programme, one introducing it and the other looking at the implications of the riots for community organising.
