Atlantic Regional Solidarity Network Annual Gathering
November 29, 30, and December 1, 2013
If you are interested in issues that affect Latin America and the Caribbean, this is the gathering for you. Activists and interested participants from around the Maritimes gather to meet, network, plan and strategize on issues in these regions and explore what is going on, how we are affected and what we can do about it. It’s a great weekend to find ways to get connected with global solidarity and social change.
This year's theme is Media in the Global Economy: Corporate Media, Human Rights Defenders, and Growing Alternatives. We will be exploring the mass media’s role in shaping perceptions and politics, how it is affecting the work of human rights defenders in Latin America as well as looking into the role that alternative media plays in struggles both here and in Latin America. We will be welcoming Haitian writer and activist Jean St. Vil as well as investigative journalist Dawn Paley as resource people throughout the weekend, and a full agenda for the weekend will follow soon.
Please mark the dates on your calendar and join us! All are welcome!
