takingcontrolwestmidlands – Now this looks interesting:
Taking Control – West Midlands Gathering 2011, May 14th -15th, is a weekend of workshops and practical sessions aimed at creating a more unified West Midlands community of people and groups interested in actively pursuing democratic and liberating social change.
There will be a wide variety of workshops on offer, with topics ranging from alternative media to gender and sexuality, from food politics to setting up co-operatives. We aim to provide the space for people to meet, discuss, and plan how to take action.
The gathering is open to all and will represent a wide range of opinions, groups and people, however, its’ aims are explicitly anti-authoritarian and non-party political.
Those running workshops at the weekend gathering at The Edge, Cheapside include The Industrial Workers of the World, Indymedia Birmingham and Radical Routes. If you feel like getting involved or finding out more than the website tells you, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
