Wednesday 18th September: Direct Action & the Movement Workshop

As part of the ITM AGM & Conference a space was created to look at lobbying and activism, and specifically looking at direct action. This space was welcomed as being very much needed in light of the conference inputs and the failure of current structures and strategies to bring about social change for Travellers and the need to look at all possible avenues to bring about this change. An informative input from Caoimhe Kerins sparked debate and discussion and from that members of the workshop agreed that ITM should set up a working group on direct action to see what we can do, how we can do this, why we will do it and when.

It was agreed by the participants to meet again on the morning of Wednesday 18th September at 11am in the Adam & Eve Church on Wood Quay for as many Members to come together to build on this.
