(en) Britain, Post-G8 UK-wide Dissent! National Gathering: Oct 15&16, Sheffield

Date Fri, 16 Sep 2005 21:34:26 +0300

www.dissent.co.uk The Dissent network saw thousand of activists come
together in July to create a mobilisation of
opposition to the G8 and also the space in which our
idea’s for future organisation were realised. Since
the G8 there have been many discussions that have
focused on the future of our network, our politics,
and priorities. At the last gathering the overwhelming
consensus was to maintain the Dissent network and this
gathering will present the opportunity to solidify our
plans and visions for the future.

In order to facilitate this process, The Matilda
Collective would like to invite all autonomous groups
and individuals interested in discussing the future of
Dissent to attend the next National gathering in
Sheffield on the Weekend of October 15th/16th

The gathering will take place at Matilda Social Centre
which was initially opened up as a the host for
activists in Sheffield organising opposition to the G8
Justice Ministers Meeting in June 2005. Since then,
the building is being used as a social space for the
creative and practical ideas of those wanting to
create alternatives.


Anticipated agenda items include: -

* Proposal for an action camp in the summer of
2006 targeting the real sources of climate chaos;
* The future of the Dissent Network! What are our
priorities? How do we sustain momentum?
* How can we be most effective against the G8 in
2006/2007? (This includes discussion on the
effectiveness of mass mobilisations).

If people would like to add points to be discussed
people should email dissentprocess@lists.aktivix.org
with proposals and topics.

There will be floor space for people to sleep so
please bring a sleeping bag/camping mat/ blow up
mattress. There are spaces available at people’s
houses, but these will go priority for people with
children and other needs. If you need alternative
arrangements, please contact us at

Food will be provided by the Matilda Café and will be
charged at £3.50 per day. All food will be vegan, but
