Why campaigns fail
Mar 5 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
The Next Level Of Campaigning. Why campaigns failed, fail, and how they will not fail again.
Responding to time running out for achieving urgent and ultimately needed change, locally and worldwide, environmentally, politically, socially. Most campaigns for change (since the 1960s) were based on experience, creativity and community. In spite of this, they have sometimes won specific gains but have failed to cause the wider changes desired. After having thoroughly reviewed many campaigns, actions, and projects from the 1960s up to 2019, their successes and failures – here’s a summary of the most common mistakes, the reasons, and a surprisingly simple mind-map that can make campaigning look fairly different in set up, practice, and success in causing effective change. This is a talk of 30 min – 45 min, followed by open time for discussion, questions, responses. Ideally leaving you with something to take home on the day. Free Entry Thursdays 5 March, 12 March and 19 March 2020 6:30-8:30pm Base Community Coop (formerly Kebele Social Centre) 14 Robertson Rd BRISTOL BS5 6JY 200 Yards from Robertson Rd bus stop (buses 48, 48a, 49, 24)

Protest, police and the law
Mar 10 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

A talk and workshop designed to help keep you safe and effective whilst protesting, and full of advice that also transfers well to non-protest interactions with the police.

What can the police order you to do?

What are your rights when stopped and searched?

When are your risking arrest – and what happens if you are arrested?

Built on legal advice from activist groups and legal firms, along with decades of shared real experience interacting with the police. This should be of use to everyone. From protest organisers, to people looking to attend their first demonstration.

Useful if you are planning on attending events such as our climate action https://www.facebook.com/events/232166077919459/ or this upcoming anti-arms trade action https://www.facebook.com/events/2980689138642911/

Hosted by Green Anticapitalist Front.
