Feminisme, een nieuw begin. (Evie Embrechts)
In Dutch
Evie Embrechts schreef onlangs het boek 'Feminisme. Een nieuw begin." Het boek gaat in op enkele belangrijke discussiepunten die de beweging nog steeds verdelen: racisme, prostitutie en pornocultuur bijvoorbeeld.
In deze workshop gaan we in op een aantal actuele vragen: hoe staat het met feminisme vandaag, wat zijn de sterktes en zwaktes? Hoe zit het met mannen? Wat is kruispuntdenken? Transgenderbevrijding en feminisme, gaat dat goed samen? Hoe passen feminisme en socialisme bij elkaar? Wat zijn de mogelijkheden van een feministische toekomst: hoe ziet die eruit en hoe kunnen we ons daarvoor organiseren?

Non-violent strategy (Agir pour la Paix)

Anarchists in Greece today
In English
Since 2010 the news from Greece monotonously include terms such as “sovereign debt crisis”, “great depression”, “austerity measures”, “political instability”, “social crisis”.
What ‘s the reality behind numbers, economic indexes and media cliches? What ‘s the current situation of a society after six years of “crisis” and how does this affects the political landscape? And the most important question for activists, what are the struggles against the present political status?
More than just outlining answers to the above questions we shall focus on the anarchist movement in Greece and its attitude towards the state policy of the last years. The rise to power of Syriza marks a turning point for the anarchist movement in Greece. In a political context where the governmental left seeks to integrate and take control of parts of the social movement, anarchist movement emerges as the consistent voice of class and social interests of the oppressed.

'Keep it in the ground' - climate activism (ENG)
In English
The outcome of the Paris Climate Conference will not solve climate change. What will? All over the planet, people take action to keep fossil fuel in the ground, often with massive actions of civil disobedience. In August 2015, more than a thousand people entered the coal pits in Rhineland, Germany, and tried to stop the diggers. This year they are coming Lausitz, near Berlin, where people have struggled against mining and resettlement for years.
Grass roots activists speak about the upcoming action camp and about climate activism. How does the extraction of fossil fuels relate to the wider energy policy? Why is it crucial to keep them in the ground? What are the perspectives for the climate movement after the Paris Summit and what is the role of direct action?
