Throughout 2015 there has been an incredible amount of creative grassroots protest against the brutal connected environmental, social, racial, and economic injustice's and the rise of the far rights politics across Britain. Those targeted by prejudice have come together [Disability, HIV, women's, migrant right groups and many more] and have created imaginative performance protests (such as 'The Beyond UKIP' cabaret) to confront these injustice's and to create a new world beyond this inequality.
These groups are coming together again for an 'action-lab' where we will create a series of actions for the rest of 2015 to let the electoral politicians know that our dreams live far beyond the ballot box.
The day will involve -
Learning from a panel of activists from key historical moments of injustice and resistance (speaker list to follow)
Strategising a series of actions for the coming year.
Facilitate critical thinking about the injustice of the whole system and not just individual causes/campaigns/groups
Facilitate unity, solidarity, ongoing networking and linking up of activities through grassroots performance protest and online media.
Create a large protest that strengthens movements at the grassroots and encourages resistance to the divide and rule of the mainstream political system.
RSVP to reserve your space or with any enquiries or if your press - firstname.lastname@example.org
The training is organised by a range of grassroots social justice movements as part of the 'Never Nie Wieder - Never Again Ever!' campaign - A unique memorial-activism programme to pass on the legacy of Holocaust survivors today. See all information at www.neveragainever.org
If you can't make this one there will be another action-lab on July 19th 2015 in central London.
