Text and slides from Aamer Anwar’s 2019 Jimmy Reid Foundation lecture

To a large and rapturous audience, Aamer Anwar delivered a barnstorming and heartfelt lecture on poverty and injustice in the Bute Hall at the University of Glasgow on a wet and windy evening on Thursday 10 October 2019.

The video of the lecture will shortly be available but for now here is the text of the lecture and the accompanying slides.

The Jimmy Reid Foundation records its thanks to Aamer for providing such a stimulating and enjoyable evening – he has certainly set the bar very high for the speaker of the 2020 annual lecture!
