Closure of the Café Diplo

We are no longer holding our Café Diplo events for Friends of Le Monde Diplomatique at The Gallery in Farringdon, and wish to thank all our subscribers and members for all the support you have given us since the UK Branch of the Association was founded in 1997. During this time we have provided an intellectual reference point for those interested in social justice and world affairs, and we have enjoyed the great privilege of hosting experts on these critical issues, so often overlooked or misrepresented in mainstream media. We would like to express our profound gratitude to these speakers, who have given up so much of their time and energy to come and share their expertise with us. Further details can be found here under Closure

For the next few months we will be show-casing some of the audio recordings of our talks and will be sending out occasional notifications via our mailing list. Please feel free to send us your comments
