Ellen Brown will be speaking at Politics in the Pub at Mullumbimby Courthouse 4 November at 7pm.

Public banking and the destructive privatised banking cartels will be discussed, over beers, at the upcoming Politics in the Pub event, to be held at the Courthouse Pub on November 3 from 7pm.

Turning Point Talks co-organiser, Dr Liz Elliott, says Ellen Brown is one of the most important activists in the USA.

Liz says, ‘She has written over 14 books including the bestseller Web of Debt, also the name of her website. She is a lawyer and natural medicine advocate’.

‘She writes and speaks with clarity, and cuts through obscure financial blather to enlighten ordinary people. Complex ideas become crystal clear. After listening to Ellen, people suddenly realise what causes so much inequality and ecological damage: money.

‘More importantly, we can then see what to do about rescuing our democracy and our environment!’

The presentation will be partly via video, but Dr Liz says those wanting to ask questions directly can contact [email protected]
