What connects fuel poverty in Clydebank, a dangerous liquid gas plant in Southall, hunger in Westerhailes, and destructive open-cast mines at Douglas and Merthyr Tydfil? A political system and culture that treats both people and our living world as disposable waste. And at one end is exploitation – at the other is catastrophic climate change. Along the way is gross inequality, toxic environments, greed and violence.
Eager to move from interest toward building creative solutions? Sign up for a day of introductory popular education and creative organizing workshops, designed to inspire alternative approaches to campaigning and community resistance.
The day will have three sessions on 1) creating spaces for dialogue and decision-making, 2) mapping and diagramming concerns and solutions, and 3) using theatre for collective learning and action.
Join us at the Pearce Institute, Govan Road, Govan, Glasgow, from 9:30 to 5:30 Saturday, January 15, 2011. The day is FREE, lunch is provided and transport will be reimbursed upon presentation of public transport receipts.
This day is presented by So We Stand, an emerging grassroots movement of people who consciously work for empowering social change to develop multiracial politics and self defence strategies for environmental and climate justice. We are committed to making links between struggles for justice, and work to provide support to local and broader struggles and campaigns by linking up communities, groups and individuals that share similar experiences and goals.
