Turning Swords Into Ploughshares

The Lucas Plan

19:30 – 22:00 BST

BAWA Centre, 589 Southmead Rd,
Bristol, BS34 7RG

This screening of an edited version of the recent film “The Plan” in Filton should be seen as a contribution to the discussion on how to move forward con the Defence diversification Agency resolution passed overwhelmingly at the 2017 TUC Conference.

The Lucas Plan was a pioneering effort by workers at the arms company Lucas Aerospace to retain jobs by proposing alternative, socially-useful applications of the company’s technology and their own skills. It remains one of the most radical and forward thinking attempts ever made by workers to take the steering wheel and directly drive the direction of change.

Today, more than 40 years after the Lucas Plan — we’re facing a convergence of crises: militarism and nuclear weapons, climate chaos, and the destruction of jobs by automation.
