The Sparrows’ Nest, St. Anns, Nottingham on Tuesday 18th September, 7.00pm.
Solidarity groups and networks are a self-organised response to hassle from employers, landlords, letting agencies, bailiffs and debt collectors.
Locally, the Nottingham Solidarity Network has been going for over a year and has had some recent successes.
The Anarchist Federation, Nottingham group, is pleased to announce a workshop by SeaSol, a long running solidarity network in Seattle, USA.
In their own words,
“Seattle Solidarity Network (SeaSol) is a workers’ and tenants’ mutual aid group that you can join to fight back against bosses and landlords when they do something like steal your wages or your damage deposit. By supporting each other through collective direct action, and winning these small fights we build our strength, experience and confidence, we can take on bigger opponents and take back more from the bosses – and we start to realize that we can do far more than that – we can create a new world…
Join members of SeaSol in a workshop and discussion about why we believe that building solidarity networks or doing similar small-scale organizing in every city is one initial step towards building a movement of resistance based around people’s daily experiences and fighting back against the rich and powerful.”
The meeting will take place at The Sparrows’ Nest anarchist cultural centre and library in St. Anns. All welcome.
