More information about the Grassroots Gatherings here
The Grassroots Gatherings were set up in 2001 out of discussions
between activists involved in the environmental movement, Latin
American solidarity, anarchist politics and community development
who shared a commitment to non-hierarchical, bottom-up ways of
organising. Gatherings are spaces for discussion and building links:
they are not dominated by any political party, and the only decisions
taken at Gatherings are about where the next one will be.

3.30-5.00 Plenary: Death of Partnership

Across a wide spectrum of movements - from community
development to trade unions, from environmentalism to disability
rights - activists are becoming aware that partnership is not working
for them. Both formal Social Partnership as well as "partnership
with a small p" - exercises in consultation and discussion at every
level of government - are becoming top-heavy exercises which
involve us in endless meetings and writing document after
document, which are then ignored completely. This Gathering aims
to bring activists from different sectors together to compare our
experiences of "the death of partnership" and to ask what our
alternatives are: "where to from here for grassroots activism?"
