Traveller Solidarity Network Infotour

Many Gypsies, Roma and Travellers face harassment and repression and suffer forced evictions for who they are, and for leading the lifestyle they have lived for centuries.

The Info Tour is touring the country in March building links between local activists and traveller sites, to resist repression and discrimination.

Coal Action Scotland infotour at The Space Project

Coal Action Scotland are touring the UK to mobilise against Scottish
Coal’s plans for a 4 million tonne opencast coal mine at Glentaggart East.
This mine is one more of many that have ravaged the Douglas Valley over
the years, and with South Lanarkshire Council once again approving a
Scottish Coal mine despite huge objection to it the stage is set for a
showdown in South Lanarkshire.

Coal is still a massive issue in the UK – despite some victories against
opencast mines and both Scottish Coal and UK Coal being on the brink of
collapse, more and more coal is burned and mined every day. This is
disastrous for communities and ecosystems, but capitalism’s dependence on
cheap and dirty fossil fuels means that the struggle must continue!

Come to find out more and be inspired! There will hopefully be some sort
of food involved. Maybe even cake.

Community Organising Training weekend

Hi green actioners
I'm helping to put on this training session for the Leeds Community
Organising group and there are still some places available.  Having been through a similar weekend myself back in March, I can thoroughly
recommend it as personally challenging and useful for anyone who wants
to build community power.

If you are interested, please complete & return the attached form to
Jonathan, details below.

Dear all,

As someone who has had some contact with the development of Community
Organising in Leeds, I’m emailing you with details of an upcoming
training session that Leeds Community Organising and Bradford
Changemakers are jointly hosting in September.

The training is taking place over two days on Saturday 25th and Sunday
26th September 2010 at Leeds Church Institute in Leeds city centre (20
New Market Street, LS1 6DG), and will run from 9.30am to 4.30pm each

This is an opportunity to deepen your knowledge of the principles and
practice of community organising, extend your own leadership skills, and grow relationships with others involved in the development of Community Organising in Leeds and Bradford.

The full weekend costs £30 per person and includes lunch and
refreshments. Further information and booking details are included on
the attached flyer – please do pass this on to others in your
organisations and communities who may be interested.

I look forward to seeing many of you there.

With best wishes
Jonathan Dorsett
