Propaganda

According to the language in early documents of the Co-operative Union, my role includes the dissemination of propaganda in favour of peace and justice. So, I’ve enjoyed reading “The People’s Cinema” which Shelagh passed me, about the use of film by the co-operative movement from as early as 1898.

Gracie Fields starred in two short movies – one, looking at a still photo, with an outsized co-operatively farmed Scottish salmon.

My favourite title so far is “The Penny: what can be done with it”.
