Event description

Description

Based in the South-East? Love free activist training? Well then look no further than this year’s South-East student activist weekender.

Workshops, skill-sharing, and direct action, designed for students with ANY level of experience in activism. All you’ll need is a sleeping bag and a willingness to take part. Vegan meals and accommodation will be provided, and travel costs can be reimbursed if you ask in advance.

This free event will be centred on how we, as students, can make a real change on campus. It will give us a space to talk about the Fossil Free campaign (getting Universities to divest from fossil fuel companies) and the Divest Barclays campaign (getting Universities to boycott Barclays because of their ties with the fossil fuel industry). And we’ll also have exciting introductions to two other campaigns: Sweatshop Free (ensuring University electronics aren’t being bought from sweatshops) and Undoing Borders (keeping the corrupt border industry OFF our campuses).Come along, make some friends, and help create a bigger and better South-East movement.

Come along, make some friends, and help create a bigger and better South-East movement. We welcome people of all ages, backgrounds, identiites, and levels of campaigning experience. Join the facebook event
