The week ahead at the Frontline Club: From Syria to China’s energy pioneers

August 3, 2011

Tickets for tonight’s First Wednesday have sold out but you can watch the discussion live here. Chaired by the broadcaster Paddy O’Connell, the debate will focus on Syria as the crackdown continues, the death toll rises and the UN Security Council comes under increasing pressure to reach a resolution condemning the violence.

Monday’s screening Children of the Revolution tells the story of two militants, Ulrike Meinhof of the German Red Army Faction (pictured) and Fusako Shigenobu of the Japanese Red Army, through the unique perspective of their daughters.

Also next week photographer Toby Smith will be presenting his latest project, China’s New Energy Pioneers, for which he spent two months documenting China’s attempts to address escalating energy and environmental problems.
