GTWA Coffeehouse: Occupy Debrief

- 9:00pm
Friday January 27 2012

Venue: Beit Zatoun
Address: 612 Markham Street
Cost: Free

2011 - maybe it wasn't quite 1968 but it was a year of great social upheaval. With 2011 behind us, the GTWA is holding the first in what will be a new series of Coffeehouses to discuss where we are as a movement, with this particular one featuring two local activists who were very involved in Occupy Toronto, and in particular building links between the Occupy movement and the labour movement. Is this the beginning of a new community/labour coalition that we've been waiting for? Will the Occupy movement be able to sustain itself and help awaken a dormant labour movement? How did the Occupy Toronto experience measure up with other Occupations? These and other issues will be topics of comradely discussion.

Speakers include two activists with the Occupy movement - Brendan Bruce and Lana Goldberg.

January 27, 2012, 7pm at Beit Zatoun 612 Markham Street

This Coffeehouse is organized by the Greater Toronto Workers' Assembly Internal Education and Political Development Committee (IEPD)
