Activists from across different struggles are coming together for an inspiring day-long workshop to share tactics, ideas, and to build practical skills. Join us!

Our different groups have worked towards building power in marginalised communities, building stronger links between different social movements and decolonising our movements and our minds. There is so much we can learn from each other.

These are some of the questions we will explore over the day:

  • How can we use the media- without getting used by the media?
  • Which tactics are effective- and how can we make them work for our different movements?
  • What do we mean when we talk about solidarity?
  • What does decolonising our movement and working with intersectionality actually mean- and how can we try to make sure we’re not reproducing the same structures we’re fighting against within our groups?

Bring yourselves, your friends, and your ideas!

Organised by: London Palestine Action, Women4Syria, Bahraini Institute for Rights and Democracy, London Latinx, Campaign Against Arms Trade, Wretched of the Earth, Kurdistan National Congress, Jubliee Debt Campaign, Iraqi Transnational Collective, London Mining Network, Palestinian Boycott National Committee, People & Planet

This day is part of The Spark 2016.
