Full Spectrum Resistance - Pipi & Jelle
How can we be powerful, create diverse strategies to protect life on Earth? And what can do we learn from resistance movements in the past? In this interactive workshop we will work with these questions. The workshop is inspired by the book Full Spectrum Resistance by Aric McBay.
What can anarchists learn from Extinction Rebellion? - Climate activists
Right from the very beginning XR has been met with a lot of criticism from people involved in radical politics. At the same nobody can deny XR's success in getting tens of thousands of people involved in direct action.

Mediation & Transformative Justice Workshop - Weerstand conflictbemiddeling

Comfortably numb: perspectives on action within geographic contexts - Marina and Kasia, Suinbike Suleimenova, Roberto Morris & Renato D'Alencon
How does the experience of organizing, direct action, research, and other political activity relate to the local and historical contexts in which they exist? What can activists in different cultures and political climates find different or common, what lessons can they learn from each other's experience? How does it relate to one's position in the neocolonial global North/South divide?
Movement strategy or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Diversity of Tactics - Harriet Bergman, Kees Stad
NOTE: this workshop changed slightly in its form and will now be in Dutch. Hoe bouw je een diverse beweging waarin verschillende soorten campagnes, acties en groepen elkaar kunnen aanvullen en versterken in plaats van in de weg zitten? We gaan in gesprek met iemand uit de radicale beweging uit de jaren 80 en mensen die nu actief zijn binnen de klimaatbeweging.

Reflecting on Extinction Rebellion - Clara
Extinction Rebellion (XR) has an extreme stance on actions organised under its name: non-violent mass civil disobedience to disrupt – but also cooperation with the police. Where does this insistence on this tactic come from, and where to go from here?
The Organizing Model: A Recipe for Grassroots Movements? - Nida Organiser, Logistical flexworker, FNV Organiser 1, FNV Organiser 2
How does the (union) 'organising' model work out in practice? How democratic and self-steering are the organized workers actually? And does it generate lasting movements, or are the celebrated successes only temporary? Workplace and community orgnisers and workers discuss.
Thank you for calling - Karel de Kleijne
Why is calling out oppressive behavior in white normative left wing activist spaces so difficult? Why are dominant groups within movement spaces trying to silence marginalized people who call out oppressive behavior? (spoiler: fragility)
