The Common Weal Policy Podcast - Episode #49

Episode 49 of the Common Weal Policy Podcast

This week, Craig Dalzell speaks to Bob Gillespie from Common Weal's Test, Trace, Isolate and Support Group - a group from the Common Weal Locals activist network who decided to get together to raise awareness of and lobby for our Ending Lockdown policy paper.

Bob discusses how the group got together and what they've been doing in terms of lobbying politicians, health boards and trade unions and what feedback they've been getting back in return.

And all of Common Weal's policy work can all be found in the Common Weal Policy Library.
