Anti-Militarist Gathering Update
he anti-militarist network invites all who are prepared to take action against global militarism for a two day conference at the Cowley Club Social Centre in Brighton on the 2nd and 3rd of May 2009.
This conference aims to:
1. Support the Smash EDO Mayday mobilisation on May the 4th in Brighton.
2. Plan for resistance to the NATO Parliamentary assembly in November in Edinburgh
3. Plan for resistance to the DSEI arms fair from 8 - 11th September
4. Continue in efforts to build an effective support network of anti-militarist direct action.
We declare our opposition to the global arms trade and all its supporting industries, as well as armed bodies which defend the power and privilege of the few at the expense of human well-being and environmental sustainability.
The anti-militarist network aims to cooperate on a non hierarchical basis. We make all decisions using consensus methods and will aim to make our conference a safe space free from sexism, racism, homophobia and all other forms of discrimination.
Food and crash-pad convergence will be provided on a donation basis. If you need somewhere to stay and for all other inquiries please contact: email@example.com
