Staines Anarchists presents… ‘Five Minutes of Infamy’ – a regional co-ordination gathering

Wednesday 13th June 2012, 7pm
@ Egham & District Social Club, 132a High Street, Egham, Surrey, TW20 9HL.

We want to create a new world, one based on mutual aid and solidarity, free from exploitation, but we realise we are a long way from achieving these ends. One step towards this goal is to put like-minded groups and individuals in contact with each other. As such we invite you to ‘Five minutes of Infamy’ a local co-ordination and social event for anti-capitalist/campaigning groups along the Surrey/Berks border. We want to get the local activist groups in the same room, to work out what we have in common and to aid each other in our respective struggles. The aim is to better aid communication between the different groupings in our immediate area, to develop a local culture of mutual aid as well as establishing a regional social event for those interested in the business of positive social transformation.

Proposed structure for meeting

Each invited group will have 5-10 minutes to introduce themselves. This can include where they are based, their political orientation, what they are currently working on or campaigning around, what significant dates they have coming up, what they need to achieve their aims – e.g. more bodies for a picket/action and what they have to offer in terms of mutual aid – e.g. skills/equipment/resources (this could be meeting rooms/photocopying, design skills, trainings etc). After the ‘go round’ there will be a 20 minute Q and A session, followed by drinks/social event. This could include music/performances from sympathetic bands/dj’s etc.

If the event proves successful we propose rotating the location of the event for future regional co-ordination meetings.

For more information on the event please contact stainesanarchists@riseup.net
