why are you reading this?

Sophie made a beautiful slip of the tongue on Saturday that set me thinking; she said, 'We're going to build up a campaign on the issues that care for us'.

Where would we be, as individuals, without the issues we care deeply about?

Why do we spend our sunny Saturdays in a large room in Euston?

How does this relate to empowerment, and the group/individuals issues that Zaria's playing with below?

(The pictures are of the issues that we hung on our washing line on Saturday, the 'issues that care for us').

Hi Kathryn,

beautiful slip of the tongue indeed. The issues that care for us.

A point about empowerment, though. I don't know if I've misunderstood this, but I feel quite empowered enough already. I don't think my personal empowerment is an issue or a problem in any of the issues we stuck on our washing line last week. If anything it is a bit too much empowerment of sections of society which has caused and continue to exacerbate certain societal problems, such as environmental problems.

In terms of being empowered as a protester, does that empowerment come from being a part of successful groups? such at the TTT crew?

any ideas?
baci a tutti,x
