The Peoples' Social Forum (peoplessocialforum.org) promises to be the largest gathering of social movements in recent Canadian history. From August 20-24 tens of thousands of activists and organizers will be in Ottawa to discuss common issues and build stronger solidarities, including a sizeable delegation from Halifax.

Join us on the evening of August 9 at the Company House (2202 Gottingen St.) to help raise funds for our delegation, and to participate in a discussion of the potentials and possibilities the Peoples’ Social Forum. 

* What can we hope for coming out of the Peoples' Social Forum?
* What role will the Forum have in struggles here in Mi’kma’ki (Nova Scotia)?
* What are the limits of social forums like these, and what can we learn from the experiences of others?

Our panel includes:
El Jones, Halifax Poet Laureate
Billy Lewis, Mi’Kmaq elder
Alex Khasnabish, professor, co-director of the Radical Imagination Project
Tori Ball, Solidarity Halifax

Suggested donation/sliding scale: $5-10. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Organized by:
The Radical Imagination Project (radicalimagination.org)
The Peoples' Social Forum Halifax Expansion Committee (http://facebook.com/PSFNovaScotia)
