Our Association supports the values of democracy and social justice embodied in the English edition of Le Monde Diplomatique newspaper. We provide a forum for debates on contemporary international issues, chiefly through our public "Cafe Diplo" talks held at The Gallery in Farringdon, London on Monday evenings.

Our events (presented in English) are opened by an invited speaker and allow for lively debate. Doors open at 18:30. Tickets on the door. Admission is £3 or £2 concessions.

Our next season of talks opens on Monday 26th September at 18.45.
