FOR PEACE-NOT-WAR VOLUME TWO (not available on general release
until October) The anti-war CD to top all anti-war CDs.
(Except for maybe P-N-W Vol 1) First EXCLUSIVE chance
to check out the grassroots, anti-war CD and see how they
do it live....But wait! Hold your horses! Before we get
into all of that....In association with www.peace-not-war.org
are bringing you another day packed with films, workshops,
discussions, talks, exhibitions and live performances.....
The day will start with a performance from RHYTHMS OF
RESISTANCE at 1pm, so make sure you're there good and early,
or you'll be missing out on an excellent performance (which
will get us all warmed-up for a nice bit of visionary thinking...)
Then we move into the assembly - a chance for everyone to
offer an activity. As ever, we come together under the banner
of 'Visions of Another World' and this time we're asking
everyone to consider the question 'How will we create the
world we want?'. ECF operates by self-organisation, so you
can offer something at any time, right up until the assembly,
and we just work together to fit it all in. Listed below
are the workshops and discussions which have been proposed
already. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
if you would like to offer an activity or just turn up on
the day and between us we'll be able to sort it out. So....what
have we got?
