Welcome

Our association

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 (see venue). Our events (presented in English) are opened by an invited speaker and allow for lively debate. Admission free, but suggested contribution to expenses £3, concessions £2.

If you have missed any past Cafes, you will find recordings of them under the “Audio” tab.  Recordings are usually available within 48 hours after the Cafe.

VIDEO CONFERENCING REPLACES THE NEXT TALK AT THE GALLERY
As you all know, due to concerns over the spread of Covid-19, we have had to postpone most of our upcoming series of talks at The Gallery in Farringdon which were scheduled for March and April.  We are now trialling screening some of the booked talks as videoconferences and hope this will go well and allow people the benefit of hearing our excellent speakers. We will continue to review the situation and update the web-site accordingly.  Details will be notified to subscribers via email.  If you are not already on our mailing list, please sign up below.
