Hello friends, colleagues and supporters,
We hope you’re all well and that you were able to navigate your way through our sweltering summer… a taste of the changing nature of summers to come.
Below is a quick round-up of what we’ve been up to since our last early summer e-news and more importantly, events to look out for over the next couple of months!

Exhibition Teaser here
We’re delighted that UNISON are hosting, with reception, a unique exhibition of 23 original cartoon works by From Pink to Prevention co-founder Diana Ward. Diana’s art-work is a unique way into the subject of the politics of breast cancer and it reflects on the decades of scientific evidence linking environmental and occupational risk factors to breast cancer. Her cartoon drawings are an integral and unique public education component of the From Pink to Prevention campaign and are at the heart of our October 2018 work, which takes the title MAKE THE CONNECTION from Di’s cartoon of the same name. Event speakers include former Green Party leader Natalie Bennett.

And we have a new ‘round up’ page on TPNS- all key FPTP resources in one place
And over the summer…
In June we completed three days interview filming for our new in-house MLK documentary ‘King Assassination Project’ which looks at more than 40 years of controversy surrounding the case. We wrote this article to illustrate King’s journey post 1963 and to suggest that to better know the facts of his murder is to better appreciate the power – and danger – of his activism 1965-68.
Huge thanks to our friends Olivier Stockman, Christine Edzard and all at Sands Films for their support of this project.
On June 23rd, to mark the end of the USA Poor People’s 40 days non-violence campaign across America, we were one of many int’l solidarity events marking that moment. We hosted a very special event (film & panel) – at Bloomsbury Baptist Church, where Dr. King himself preached in 1961. Photos and video of the evening are here
And here our USA partners continued to develop MLK Global activity.
In May our Make Apartheid History campaign marked NAKBA Day
and included our short video with Brian Eno on the subject. The NAKBA means the Catastrophe and describes the mass forced expulsion of Palestinians from their land brought about by the creation of the state of Israel. And in July we made this short video to mark Mandela Day.
With Eurovision planned to go to Israel next year, there is already a powerful int’l campaign underway to both boycott the event and encourage artists not to perform. MAH will be supporting these activities.
