>> Hi, We?re sending this to you because your group provides vital
>> support for social movements in Britain.
>> Would you be interested in participating in a Movement Support
>> Gathering later this year? Please get back to us about how you?d
>> like to get involved, what you would be interested in bringing to
>> the gathering and how you think such an event might help build our
>> support networks throughout the U.K. Our contact details are
>> With protests spreading up and down the country, we felt it would
>> be helpful for groups who support this growing student, workers, &
>> environmental protest movement to meet during a national event,
>> build connections, and share workshops. So we?re putting out
>> feelers to see if there?s interest in having a Movement Support
>> Gathering later this year. The idea is to have it in central
>> England (not in London) and perhaps focused around a large action
>> that we could then support the day after the gathering. For
>> example, the weekend before the Conservative Party
>> in Birmingham (8 to 11 October 2012).
>> At the bottom of this email is a example of what a schedule for
>> this gathering might look like.
>> Solidarity & Autonomy, Green and Black Cross Legal Support
>> 07946541511 gbclegal at riseup.net<mailto:gbclegal at riseup.net>
>> The format could be:
>> DAY 1 During the day there could be workshops provided by all
>> groups involved, such as:
>> 1) A series of workshops & trainings (Know your rights,
>> facilitation training, legal issues & squatting, organiser
>> training, self defence, legal observer training, tech tools for
>> activists, building a website, activist medics, conflict
>> resolution, etc)
>> 2) Trainer trainings (for example, how to train legal observers,
>> 3) Space for groups/networks to meet (For example GBC needs to do a
>> short business meeting amongst the various GBC regional groups who
>> would be there)
>> 4) An afternoon plenary session for open space discussion/skill
>> share ? possibly use Seeds for Change or other facilitators. How is
>> it we build a support network for the protest movements? How do we
>> share information about what is already available (between
>> ourselves and also the wider movements)?
>> DAY 2 Presumably the following day would be an Action Day and many
>> of us could participate or support the locally organised action
>> -- Green and Black Cross Legal Support
