Newham socialists attend 'I, Daniel Blake' film night
Newham Community Cinema held a showing of Ken Loach's film 'I, Daniel Blake' on 8 April. On behalf of East London Socialist Party branch I was asked to introduce the film which is the story of Daniel and Katie showing the reality and experiences of ordinary people under capitalism in Britain today.
It was also very fitting to see the movie shown in Newham, a borough that has seen hundreds of families forced out of London. Although many have fought back too - the E15 mums and most recently One Housing keyworker residents. It was a great opportunity to speak to people concerned by the attacks on housing, the benefit system and disabled people, and meet people in the community we may not usually meet.
If you have a local community cinema, you should defiantly suggest they show 'I, Daniel Blake' and offer to introduce it, to explain why some of the issues the characters face make people look to socialist ideas.
