Wednesday Assembly Round-up

Wednesday Assembly Run-down

Wednesday evening saw the first of our regular organising assemblies which was well attended and rather fruitful. Here follows a brief run down of what went down.

Procedure for putting on events at the space:

It was decided that events other than free uni workshops should be presented to the assembly on Wednesdays to be given the thumbs up by the group. Free uni workshops can be submitted spontaneously. Should someone wish to put on an event at shorter notice it can be proposed to folks at the free uni on Saturday.

Event Proposals:

Conflict resolution – mid November

Regular film night – every Tuesday, film starts 7.30 next week’s film to be decided at the end of the previous week. First film: Living Utopia – a film about Spanish anarchist organising in the 1930’s.

Independent media group – a get together to create independent media – every Thursday 5pm

Letter writing to those imprisoned for their participation in current struggles – every Thursday 5pm

Legal observer training – Date TBA (before November 9th)

Regular English as foreign language lessons – Every Saturday @ the free uni

Gender chat club – two sessions – Monday’s 5.30pm (self identified women only) Saturday @ Free Uni men and women welcome.

Publicity:
