How can we move beyond both the fascist “alt-right” and a bankrupt (neo)liberalism toward a collectively liberated society with justice and democracy for all? Join us for a follow-up event to “Resistance in the Time of Trump” focusing on organizing, action, and building a radical, grassroots resistance in dangerous times. The event will begin with short presentations from invited speakers talking about specific social justice projects, organizations, and initiatives happening right now in Halifax and the region. Break-out discussion/working groups will follow with the aim of letting people connect with the initiatives most interesting to them. The focus of the event is connecting people with the fabric of struggle already present here.
Invited speakers and workshop facilitators:
Jackie Barkley and Ben Sichel (anti-racist and long-term organizing)
Doreen Bernard (Mi’kmaq resistance and the struggle against Alton Gas)
Art Bouman and Kellan Roy (Autonomy East)
Larry Haiven (solidarity with workers and labour struggles)
Alex Khasnabish (movements and what it means to win)
