Got better things to do when election night rolls around? So do we! Join #Edinburgh GAF this Thursday 12th December at 20:00 in the Autonomous Centre of Edinburgh, where we'll be screening Invasion (a documentary about the Unistoten camp) and Prelude to Disaster (the latest episode of @submedia's Trouble) and holding a discussion about each of them.
Can't make it? Then let's discuss it here!
1. What is the colonial history of your region? Who occupied these lands before the establishment of the current borders & national government?
2. What does anti-colonial struggle look like in your area? Are there any active anti-colonial struggles going on?
3. What projects are people here currently engaged with that could benefit from applying more of an anti-colonial lens? What would this actually look like in practice… aside from just token acknowledgement?
4. What are some of the practical things that non-Indigenous activists should know about when working with Indigenous groups, or in Indigenous-led campaigns?
5. What financial institutions, politicians, or corporations based in your community are supporting the destruction of Wet’suwet’en lands?
6. What are some ways of demonstrating material support for the Unis’tot’en and Wet’suwet’en? How can you support Wet’suwet’en sovereignty from your stand?
1. What are the tactical & strategic differences available to you, based on whether you live in a big city, a small town, or a rural area? What are some of the strengths and weaknesses of each terrain, as it relates to their potential for struggle?
2.What type of organizational structure would be required in order to combine the strengths and compensate for the weaknesses of these terrains? What steps would be involved in setting up this type of network?
3. What kind of role do you see non-violent advocacy groups like Extinction Rebellion playing in the so-called ‘climate movement’?
4. Climate change is often presented in apocalyptic, ‘end of the world’ terms. What effects do you think that this discourse has on resistance movements and broader society?
5. Is it possible for cities to be sustainable? What level of environmental impact is justified in maintaining their benefits, and what practical steps could be taken to make them more sustainable?
