Autonomous* Spaces During the ESF in London, 13-17th October 2004.
We want to create open spaces for networking, exchanges, celebration, thinking,
and action. We believe our ways of organising and acting should reflect our
political visions, unlike the UK ESF organising process which has not reflected
the values and charters to which it aspires.
Some of us believe that it is possible to rebuild the ESF to make it closer to
the ideals it claims, others wish to go further and say that it only represents
a space for the co-option of struggles, and as such, should be opposed. However
we are all united in our diversity, and in our desire to act together in ways
that respect these differences.

There are now several self organised and autonomous spaces - they range from
legally hired venues to squatted social centres.We invite you to participate in
the autonomous spaces, to help shape them, to organise workshops, discussions,
creative interventions, and practical alternatives.

BEYOND ESF - Wednesday 13th - Sunday 17th October

We want to continue the radicalisation that we have seen during the recent
mobilisations against the WTO, G8, IMF and World Bank summits through BEYOND
ESF - a self-organised, radically different space. We invite participation in
discussion and direct action around specific themes: surveillance & control :
social centres : precarious work : no borders : zapatismo : G8 Scotland 2005.
BEYOND ESF will be based at a large legal venue, with provision for cheap food,
meeting space, imc and alt media facilities, and evening entertainment (*also
possible simultaneous translation).

The Laboratory of Insurrectionary Imagination

This open and autonomous initiative will function as a hub for those whose
activities fall outside of and in between the spaces of culture and politics;
whose actions exist between resistance and creativity. We are calling on groups
and individuals from around Europe to propose actions, events and tool/tactic
sharing workshops. Themes include, reclaiming contested spaces, surveillance
and consumption and the brand.

Life Despite Capitalism - Saturday 16th October

A one day event outside the ESF on "Commons and Communities", to be held at a
central london university (LSE) with two strands: "ROOTS" - Discussion of
visions, understanding, struggles, successes and difficulties around
experiences of commons and of reclaiming our powers and communities (commons at
work, traditional/indigenous commons, creative commons, alternative spaces,
public services, and migrant and precarious workers). "SWARM" - will see the
people working on "single issues" in the previous workshops, mixed up randomly
to cross-pollinate and contaminate each other.

The Carnival Forum

A volitile mix of politics and pleasure... As a mobile carnival forum we intent
to interlink some of the key esf venues and to take democracy to the streets en
route - taking the forum out of the tradtional conference hall and to the (so
called) every day people. Reaching out to the most diverse array of people
possible the CF is unpredicatble, inclusve and creative. It's the jester in the
esf court! - interspersing festivities with discussions, workshops and
skillsharing around (but far from limited to) esf themes like peace, democracy,
neoliberalism, sustainability, discrimination, the economy and work.
