WORKSHOP ON SAT 18TH OCTOBER
Long time Chelsea Manning & Julian Assange supporters, Payday Men’s Network (see Refusing to Kill) and Queer Strike (see Global Womens Strike) will be at the Anarchist Bookfair, London, this Saturday, the 18th of October, hosting a workshop on how we can protect our whistleblowers and refuseniks.
Much of the focus will be on Chelsea Manning, and the session will cover the contribution she and Julian Assange of WikiLeaks have made to history, and the difference this has made to us all.
Also discussed will be the catalyst that Chelsea has been for change in San Francisco Pride.
Earlier this year Queer Strike & Payday Men’s Network published a key essay covering these issues which appeared as one of the contributions to the important Spring 2014 issue, majoring on Chelsea, of ‘QED: A Journal in GLBTQ Worldmaking‘ (Michigan State University Press)
The workshop starts at 12 noon. Come along and join us!

How Chelsea Manning‘s action sparked the LGBTQ and anti-war movements’ blowing the whistle on San Francisco Pride?
