INVITATION TO ALL OTTAWA ACTIVISTS
Do you believe that the current economic and social system is fundamentally flawed?
Do you feel frustrated by the inability of progressives to adequately challenge what we are up against?
Do you want to join with other individuals in Ottawa from across diverse sectors and organizations to be more strategic, more powerful, and more-far-reaching?
Come help create an Ottawa Assembly.
Inspired by the Toronto Workers' Assembly, the Ottawa Assembly would bring together individuals to build working class unity and solidarity defined broadly and inclusively. The Assembly would seek to be more than a coalition or network, and to organize and act to claim new ground, not only defend previous gains.
MONDAY, JULY 26th, 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm (light supper will be served)
233 Gilmour Avenue, Wyllie Board Room, Main Floor, PSAC Building
At this meeting, we will engage in meaningful and focused discussions about what is needed in Ottawa to build a powerful and effective movement for change.
We will hear from Rebecca Schein about the Toronto Workers' Assembly.
Using participatory meeting techniques, we will start to identify issues and projects that we might want to undertake.
It will be a different kind of meeting. It will be a chance to build new relationships and friendships. Come and be part of something exciting.
