Third Movie Night Report

On February 17, a group of people gathered at the Sluiskade Occupy Camp to watch the documentary ‘Just do it – A tale of modern day outlaws’. It was the fourth event of this working group. 30 people came to see the movie. We enjoyed the cozy atmosphere of the ‘event tent’ with couches, blankets and warm drinks. The discussion afterwards gave everyone a chance to express their ideas – some of the main topics we talked about were the goals and reasons for activism and strategies for community building.

First Movie Night Report

On December 6, a group of people gathered at the Hunzerheem Squat to watch the documentary ‘Let’s make money’. It was the second event of this working group, and we’re satisfied with how it went. Our advertising and flyering actions the days before seemed to have been successful – 35 people came to see the movie.

Since the documentary showed several contrasting viewpoints about the workings of our current monetary system, our intent was to provide space for people to exchange their ideas and thoughts afterwards. 23 people stayed for a two-hour discussion around the fireplace.

General Information Meeting Report

On the 29th of November 2011, a group of people gathered at the University of Groningen to find out more about Occupy. It was the first event of this working group, and we’re pretty proud of how it went. Our flyering campaign of the week before seemed to have been successful – there were between 30 and 40 people there, enough to get the nerves going!

The intent was really to give people some background about Occupy and other current movements, the state of progressive activism in Groningen and some ideas about how they could be involved. If you were there, feel free to let us know what you thought below!

There were many requests for the presentation that was put together by the working group as a whole, so we have uploaded it here: Occupy General Information Meeting Slides 29.11.11 Please feel free to circulate this throughout your networks!
