GAP meeting - 7th February

We meet every Monday, 6:30 - 9pm, at the Pearce Institute, Govan Rd, on the corner of Pearce St.

All who agree with our vision statement are welcome at our meetings:

"We strive for a sustainable society where all people are free to live their lives as they see fit without fear of oppression, persecution or marginalization insofar as this does not prevent others from doing the same. We see this fulfilled thru a society built upon principles of co-operation, solidarity, mutual-aid, direct democracy and freedom of association."

Brain wash - 7th to 10th February

We invite everyone (activists, feminists, ecologists, doctors, conservatives, vegans, carnivors, anarchists ...) to take part in our brain washing session by taking a look at documentaries concerning some key issues such as WASTE, IRAQ, ZAPATISTAS, and the MEDIA. We will have guests to speak about each theme as well as open discussions. We will also have a flyer table (for local activists to take part in) general information about the G8, IMF, WTO, supermarkets, surveillance, a Zapatista mural on exhibition, ZApatista coffee, as well as some of Jess Hurd's photography ...

The aim of this event is to welcome as diverse and extreme points of views as possible to converge in one space. It doesn't matter whether we agree with each other or not, the idea is to communicate and figure where and why we disagree. It will also be an opportunity to see some great films such as Surplus, Manufacturing Consent, Total Rubbish, The Human Cost of War, and Independent Media in a time of War, Zapatista.
