Went through the last meetings minutes and action points.
2. Campaign Against Climate Change Trade Union meeting (20th Sept, London)
Makes sense for us to network the conference through our trade union conference. A few Birmingham comrades have gone to Reclaim the Power (antifracking camp in Blackpool) this weekend Edd will try and get a report from them for the ISN website. Which will be some activity on the subject for the website.
Discussion about how the network organises and can develop work around particular issues. This will clearly be a major theme of the NMM. Gareth raised the idea of a possible "buddy system" to help develop more support for different areas of work.
3. Birmingham AntiCapitalists
Edd reported on Birmingham AC group - having a meeting on Friday at 4pm to report back on the ISN NMM.
4. Working groups for national members' meeting (NMM)
We need volunteers to do the ring rounds for the NMM.
