Dundee SSP

Scottish Socialist Party branches from Dundee


Our branches meet every second Wednesday at the
DVA, 10 Constitution Road. If you want to come along Contact us

Every meeting we try to have one main political discussion as well as covering other news, Party activity and business as well as other smaller discussions on other political issues including local topics.

Next meetings:

  • Wednesday 15 June 2011
  • Wednesday 29 June 2011
  • Wednesday 13 July 2011
  • Wednesday 27 July 2011

Here is a sample of some of our previous main political discussions to see the range of main topical discussions. Some are big current news items, some are about items which were important over the last 6months. Some are on a particular policy or historical event or events and others are particular interests of an individual member.

For some main discussions we have one person talking for 15-20 minutes followed by discussion and questions/answers. For others we are interactive and someone will facilitate a discussion which maximises participation from all attending the discussion. Some of these are as simple as having random people reading out quotes at particular points during the talk, pass the parcel with Mars bars to represent the movement of money during the credit crunch. We like to vary the method depending on what the speaker/facilitator feels most comfortable with and which would be the most effective way to discuss a particular topic as well as to experiment with different methods to see what works for us and what doesn’t.
