May Reshuffle

This Saturday will be a good one with the May Reshuffle community activists gathering at the Pearce Institute in Govan. Between twelve and eight there will be workshops and talks on a variety of subjects and there should be something for everyone.
There will be workshops on car culture and public transport in Glasgow, climate change and grass roots health initiatives. There will also be two really interesting looking talks. The first on the struggle against gentrification in New York City from an activist from Movement for Justice in El Barrio who have successfully defended there community in central NYC from developers looking to destroy it.
The second talk from Stevphen Shukatis, research fellow at the University of London entitled Combining Critical Practice, Research and Theory as Popular Struggle. Catchy title eh?
As well as the workshops there will be books and a reference library provided by the radical Independent Bookfair, food from the brothmix collective, SunnyGovan FM, free software from the Electron Club, Madlab for kids from Glasgow university, Galgael traditional crafts, massage from monkey Machine and Bees!!
See you there.
