Revolt Video

KeysGroups take need keys-
Bad books-
Kids Space-
Prisoner Support
Also individuals who are not in these groups but who use the space. Its cost about 10 euro to cut a set of keys.

8Safer Space- Safer space obviously effects everyone who uses SP. - I guideline should be drawn up for SP A.S.A.P to address this complex issue, and displayed on the wall.- Safer space will be on the agenda for AAA- An AAA just about Safer Space.

RAG- Need storage space, self etc- There is an old filing cabinet in Gers that could be used, people needed to collect it (very funkin heavy carrying it down a few fights of stairs), Maybe keep filing cabinet out side the door upstairs to save space.

Anti Authoritarian Assembly

Anti Authoritarian Assembly and Social

This Sunday, 10th September at 2pm, Seomra Spraoi

Everyone is urged to attend the next AAA, which is a regular gathering of individuals and groups who are involved in libertarian/anarchist/DIY-type activities in Dublin city (you don't have to have any affiliation or label to come along).

The agenda will be drawn up on the day however, the general format for the day will include:
- Tea/Coffee/Water
- Introductions
- Discussion on Rossport Solidarity Camp/Shell to Sea
- Update from all groups/campaigns present
- Car Free Day
- Future discussion on Safer Spaces/Sexual Violence
- Any other future proposals
- Any other business

If anyone as anything else to add to the agenda come along on the day or email seomraspraoi@gmail.com in advance.

After the meeting there will be food and some music. This will give us all a chance to relax and chat. The social side of the meeting should definitely have kicked off by 5pm so those of you too delicate to sit through the AAA but interested in hanging out with the cream of Dublin’s libertarian activists should come along then. Bring food, bring music. All welcome.

Seomra Spraoi is on the first floor, 6 Lower Ormond Quay, Dublin 1 (on the north quays between the Millennium Bridge and Capel St bridge, ring the top buzzer).

The last AAA took just two hours and was very enjoyable. Hopefully this too will prove to be an interesting and pleasant day.

(Note: It was hoped that there would be a speaker from Rossport Solidarity Camp present to tell us all about what is going on there. At the moment unfortunately it is unlikely they can make. Therefore, there will perhaps be a more general discussion about the Camp and the campaign and what we in Dublin can do to help. This will be for the first 15 or 20 minutes.)
