All radical, community-orientated local groups and individuals throughout the country are invited to a UK-wide Community Action Gathering in Nottingham on Saturday 27th March.
Obviously, there's only so much that we can do at one event. But we hope to work out how to promote the concept of community action effectively, to establish better links and communication channels among local groups, and encourage new ones to flourish all over the UK. That way we will be more effective and be able to make a real difference in our communities.
This event aims, through workshop discussions, to:
· share information, local experiences and views about some of the key issues affecting our communities
· establish better links and communication channels among radical, community-orientated local groups and individuals
· promote collective and non-hierarchical, open and horizontal forms of organisation
· promote anti-authoritarian, anti-state, anti-capitalist and pro-community, pro-working class grass-roots politics - that is, the interests of people rather than of governments and corporations!

nb. This event was organised shortly before the date of the concurrent "Building a working-class anti-racist and anti-fascist network conference" was announced ( http://www.indymedia.org.uk/en/regions/nottinghamshire/2010/02/446613.html). As both events are in Nottingham, delegates to each event are urged to bring colleagues to attend the other!
