Community - creating, being in, supporting

Occupy Sydney

A global movement is growing. From Egypt to Spain, from Greece to the United States, hundreds of thousands of everyday people are occupying. Occupy Sydney began on 15 October, with hundreds of people reclaiming Martin Place. Flanked by the imposing towers of the financial and political elites, where a handful of people make decisions which affect the whole society, a new democratic space was established.


Cross Border Collective: reading and writing group

Monday, October 31, 2011 -
2:00am to 4:00am

The Cross Border Collective, based in Sydney, works to create a world where people’s movement is not controlled in the interests of capital.

Our reading and writing group gets together once a month to talk about a few articles we have read and to work towards writing articles, zines and other materials that we can use in our on-going campaign to break down borders at the nation-state level as well as other social, cultural, political and economic borders which operate to divide us.

Calling all Community Workers, Students, Activists and Thinkers!

Can community organisations actually be a part of their community, instead of an arm of Government?

Can our work contribute to transforming the social and economic realities that creates the need for ‘services’ in the first place?

Community Work for Social Change invites you to take part in a collective process of reinvigorating our practice, from the bottom up.

Community Teach-In: Natural Gas and Carbon Trading

Sunday, October 23, 2011 -
1:00am to 3:00am

We have all heard about the dangers of coal seam gas (CSG) and have been encouraged by the public opposition to proposed CSG projects.

But does natural gas have an opportunity to sneak in by the back door? Carbon trading will soon allow Australian polluters to export the dangers of fracking and natural gas. What role can we expect natural gas to play in the new economics of carbon trading? Who will profit and who will lose out?

Come to the Friends of the Earth teach-in and join a conversation about the relationship between coal seam gas and carbon offsets.
