US Social Forum Movement School - Jackson MS

15h ago



Organizers from across the country joined in a US Social Forum Movement School held in Jackson Mississippi in January 2015. Participants discussed the following questions: 1. What is political independence and why do we need it? 2. How can our movement go from the defensive to the offensive? 3. What is the relationship between movement tactics (e.g., actions, campaigns, protests and resistance) and movement strategies 4. How would we describe the features of the current political moment? How does it overlap with the work that folks are already doing and how should it inform the direction of the US Social Forum?
