Forensic Talk: Extreme Accounts of Survivors

Back Room

A portion of ticket sales will be donated to victim support charities.

In this potentially life-saving talk, Jennifer will share the stories of survivors from extreme incidents, she will also discuss the accounts of security experts and crime prevention strategies.

You will hear stories from those who survived mass shootings and escaped serial killers and have decided to share their experience with the world. What do they think they did which meant they survived?

You will learn specific ways to protect yourself, including spotting danger signs early and how to safely deal with strangers trying to enter your house or how to identify the source of anonymous threats. This talk will be a celebration of human intuition, capability and resilience, designed to empower those for who fear of violent crime is a concern.

Saudi Arabia & the UK: Politics Before Principles?

Back Room

What lies behind the British government's decision to place politics before principles in the Gulf? Why have Anglo-Arabian relations grown even closer in recent years, despite ongoing, egregious human rights violations? Join author & middle-east analyst Dr David Wearing for this fascinating look into our complex relationship with the Gulf State, and the real life 'Bitter Lake'.

UK ties with Saudi Arabia and the other Gulf monarchies are under the spotlight as never before. The killing of the journalist Jamal Khashoggi, and the UK's key supporting role in the disastrous Saudi-led intervention in Yemen has lent added urgency to the debate.

David Wearing, author of 'AngloArabia: Why Gulf Wealth Matters to Britain', argues that Saudi Arabia and the other Gulf Arab monarchies constitute the UK's most important and lucrative alliances in the global south. They are central both to the British governments ambitions to retain its status in the world system, and to its post-Brexit economic strategy.

This talk will shine a light on the shocking lengths the British state has gone to in order to support these regimes. As the UK's ties with Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states continue to make the headlines, this talk lifts the lid on 'AngloArabia' and whats at stake for both sides.

Venue: Cafe 1001, Brick Lane
Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.

The Truth About Super Strength Mandy

Back Room

Why have Ecstasy deaths in the UK quintupled in the last seven years? What can be done about it?

Ecstasy is cheaper, stronger, more abundant and more dangerous than ever. Mike Power spent six months on an undercover investigation to find out why... Travelling to China last summer to carry out a sting on a chemicals plant, Power reveals his untold story of this operation.

Mike Power is a British freelance investigative journalist specialising in drugs and technology.

His book Drugs 2.0 was published in 2013, and documented a new digital frontline in the war on drugs. It was the first book to document how users and dealers have outmanoeuvred law enforcement and created a global, online black market in narcotics.

His reports around the emergence of so-called legal highs recreational drugs manufactured in Chinese laboratories that are legal in most countries have prompted complex policy debates in the UK and beyond.

His "Drugs Unlimited" report for Matter.com documented an undercover mission to produce and import a new, legal drug, using only a laptop, won the 2014 British Science Writers Association's prize for the best investigative journalism.

An advocate of urgent drug law reform, Power offers colorful reportage and research on this topic, whether infiltrating clandestine labs in Shanghai, jungle clearings in Phnom Penh or treks through Colombian coca fields.

Through talks with Dutch and English Ecstasy smugglers, British political experts and dark web cryptomarket drug dealers, Power argues the case for a wide-ranging and radical rethink of all drug laws in the digital age.

Mike Power has reported extensively from Panama and Colombia for Reuters, and his clients include The Guardian, Vice, Mixmag, Matter.com, Deutsche Welle, The Mail On Sunday, The Sunday Herald, Lonely Planet, Dazed & Confused, Granta, The London Evening Standard, Playboy and many more.

Venue: Cafe 1001
