activist trauma gathering, 4th February, London

Activist Trauma Network logo

Saturday 4th February 2006 10am-5pm

The Activist Trauma Network is organising a day of discussion and networking for all who are involved in promoting practical mutual support in activist, campaigning and community groups. This is an ever expanding area, as political work of any kind can be extremely demanding on every level. Many, but not all of us, became involved in this work by having first hand experience of trauma related to activism, police brutality, burn-out, stress-related physical illness and mental health issues. We are planning to discuss our own chosen work in these areas and expand on ideas we may have for projects, make new contacts and give/receive constructive feedback.

Illegal eviction of Bradford squat, last night police illegally assisted the eviction of a residential squat on Cecil Avenue holding four of the six occupants (all of the people in the building) for over 14 hours before releasing them without charge. The police entered and searched the building through a broken window and the landlord then changed the lock boarding the window behind them. The four men from Poland and Lithuania who spoke little or no English were questioned about other occupants of the building, asked if money had been exchanged and how the house had been entered and the electricity turned on.
