Gaining Power- Challenges Facing Activists
19th July 2012 – 10.00am – 4.00pm
The venue for this event is Resource For London, 356 Holloway Road, London N7 6PA
We are delighted to confirm that the next NatCAN conference will be held in London for the first time and we hope that you will be there to join us.
The day will look at the issues close to our hearts and give real accounts of work across the country that has made a real difference to communities. We will be providing lots of time to take part in discussions with others, as requested by members of NatCAN.
What will the day offer?
The keynote speech will be given by A World To Win
They will be giving a fascinating insight into global capitalism, growing inequality and poverty. The debate will then be handed over to the delegates to discuss further. The afternoon will target grass-roots problems and issues that affect us all in our communities. It will be a day with something for every activist to give opinions on and look at ways forward.
In the meantime please read this request from Penny at NCIA as you could take part in an essential piece of research NCIA are looking to do over the coming months and of course tell us your experiences at the conference:-
Is this you? Trying to get the council and landlords to improve local housing? Resisting, yet another, TESCO in your area or other damaging planning applications? Tackling the crap Housing Benefit Service and Job Centre? Despair about poor care and facilities for older people (or others who depend on good local services) and wonder just what to do about it? Fed up with the rum deal that kids get at local schools and looking for others who might do something about it? Active in the local anti-cuts group?
If you’re involved in taking action on issues affecting local people in your area, want to share tactics with others or find out how to get help to keep you going, then this event is for you! Enrol HERE….
Penny at NCIA firstname.lastname@example.org wants to hear from you about where you get support in your campaigns – from fellow activists? From a local network? From on-line contacts? Tell us what makes the difference, so we can spread the word to others looking for support.
