        AFGJ Presents...Tear Down the Walls National Gathering for Global Justice

 

You are invited to join the Alliance For Global Justice in Tucson for the Tear Down The Walls National Gathering to strategize and network together to build a more unified movement for transformational change in the US. Check out the video: http://youtu.be/U4w3rJzCA-U

The Tear Down the Walls National Gathering is hoping that 50-100 people will make the journey from Cascadia at the beginning of the rainy season to sunny and warm Tucson, November 1-3. We're setting up a travel fund for those who can't afford it to make it accessible to those with the heart and the time.

There are so many Walls to Tear Down...


Walls made by War, Imperialism, Oppression, Homophobia, Racism, Militarized Border Walls, Wall Street, Walls to Citizenship, Housing, Education, Walls to Economic Equality and the Walls between us, which weaken our collective movement.

Please join us, November 1st- 3rd in Tucson Arizona to Tear Down the Walls! Learn more, and please share this with your friends and colleagues.

Help us get the word out!

All Souls Procession Weekend.

Unsure? How about checking out this video that shows a small sliver of the epic community gathering of over 20,000 people in Tucson that finishes off the conference on Sunday evening November 3rdhttp://youtu.be/dsJQPwfd9jk

People's Power Assemblies

The purpose of the Tear Down the Walls National Gathering is to create spaces for cross-movement strategies and networking. We want this to be an action oriented conference that will create substantial progress toward building a stronger, more unified movement for transformational change in the US.

To that end we are incorporating six  2 and a 1/2 hour People’s Power Assemblies throughout the weekend which are designed to produce cross-movement strategies and at least one [inter]nationally coordinated day of local action that all the groups involved agree to build together.

Topics for People’s Power Assemblies

  1. US Imperialism and Anti-Militarism
  2. Drug War and Drug War Prisoners
  3. Immigration and Border Militarization
  4. Economic Justice
  5. Ecology and Empire
  6. Anti-Repression and Prison-Industrial Complex

*We recognize that there is substantial overlap even among these six issues. Capitalism with its need to create mechanisms for criminalization and social control is an even deeper root than these six cross-movement issues.
