An online talk hosted by Conway Hall
Join Ben Tippet, author of Split: Class Divides Uncovered, for an online talk.

Now is the time to fight back against the 1%.
Ben Tippet is an educator, activist, and writer. He is currently doing a PhD at the University of Greenwich, re-searching the causes of wealth inequality in the UK. He is a researcher for The Transnational Institute and has written for Novara, Strike! and Economy.
