There is rising concern about the flood-threatening levels of greenwash that will we seeping from The Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA), also known as Chatham House (1), this coming Tuesday February 7th 2006, when BP Chairman Peter Sutherland will be speaking there on 'The future of the World Trade Organisation in addressing sustainable development’ (2). (What we like about these guys is their bone dry sense of humour.) With delicious yet appalling irony, February 7th is also likely to see BP announce record quarterly profits.

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.
