[OPIRG-EVENTS] Workshop on solidarity with South African grassroots groups
Date: Friday August 8th
Location: Jack Purcell Community Centre, 320 Elgin Street
Anti-capitalist Community Action (ACA) is hosting a speaker from the South
Africa Solidarity Network who will provide information about the current
grassroots struggle in South Africa and ways that anti-authoritarian,
social justice groups in the global north can act in solidarity with
activists in South Africa.
The South Africa Solidarity Network supports anti-authoritarian groups in
South Africa who are challenging the neoliberal agenda of the ANC.
Privatisation of basic services, evictions and an increase in state and
police repression have led to new groups being formed, and new strategies
being used, to fight back; The Network aims to facilitate the flow of
knowledge, support (and money) between anti-authoritarian, non-hierarchial
groups in North America with parallel groups in South Africa. We're in the
beginning stages of building the Network, most of the work so far has been
giving video showings and talks outlining the current situation in South
Africa and the groups involved in grassroots struggles there.
