        Due to various things (COC). This event will now be held at Plantation Productions, at the Portal, Govan road. Not the Pearce Institute. Don't worry if other people don't get this The portal is two minutes away, about two blocks down from the Pearce Institute. Someone will be at the PI to direct people and there will be a direction notice on the PI door. Sorry about that.

THE CRISIS OF COMMUNITY and the Opportunity for Change, Sunday 17th 1:00pm.
       On the Sunday James Kelman, will lead a discussion geared towards mobilisation and solidarity in dealing with the issues across the city of the councils process of stopping DIY community activities in favour of. "You can have community things but we will do them for you with private partners". There has recently been a growing ground swell of ordinary people feeling the urge and the necessity to do something. Such as. Maryhill Park clean ups, despite council objections. Making Councillors accountable campaigns. Community run dinner nights at the Pearce Institute and places like Kinningpark Complex are creating activities and bringing groups together, presenting local people with a platform to voice their concerns and also their ideas. I mention a few but there are many others across the city. Some are known about but many are invisible to people as well as to each other.
