Time for an UP!!D8 for July 2017

A QUICK UP!!D8  as I have got a bit behind on here.  Do be in touch wth me direct and follow Outerglobe website too. I am on twitter @outerglobe and instagram also with @outerglobe

With no apologies for a change in tone from my usual posts, we'll start with a minute's silence for all those who died in the Grenfell Fire just over a month ago. I do believe we are talking about maybe 300 people rather than the 80 officially mentioned. My opinion, shared by many, is that the fire was a criminal act and that there must be some arrests and convictions for what amounts to murder. There is a well defined trail of those responsible for decisions and shoddy materials.  There are some sound sites to donate to if you wish www.gofundme.com/grenfell-tower-fire-fund is one that is supported by the community itself.  Check also details in www.grenfellsupport.wordpress.com

 

THIS WEEK IN THE OUTERGLOBE between 6.30-7.30pm UK time on Resonance 104.4FM & DAB Londonwide and www.resonancefm.com Worldwide. I am picking up the thread I started a couple of weeks ago with musician/activists Ray Carless (Club Skaaville) and Kevine Haynes (Grupo Elegua) who are immersed in community action support around the Grenfell Fire with Westway 23 and One Voice. Both also have wonderful new music out which we'll play. Healer/Women's empowerment networker Carol Mathebula of Vunkuwa International Academy joins the discussion as well.

Listen to all editions so far of The Outerglobe at this link 

 

SISTERS OF REGGAE have our July Dance on Saturday July 29th at the Queens Head, Brixton, London. It's free between 9pm-1am. See our facebook page! I rode solo for this month's Sisters of Reggae show on Balamii Radio which I really enjoyed doing. Everything Sisters of Reggae play is 100% Vinyl 100% Reggae in all its vintage forms! Pure niceness. Listen to the show here

 

Come back to the page soon .... I am doing some more updating on here and will also UP!D8 everything else ... Promise!
