Activistas contra a comercialização da Educação

Dear All,

1st: Take a look of this mobilisation map created by activists in France:

Is anybody willing and able to make a similar map for the upcoming week of action, which we could then put on the homepage (http://emancipating-education-for-all.org)?


2nd: A few days ago I prepared a "Slide-show" with some of the footages of the "International Day of Action against the Commercialisation of Education", on Nov.5th:


3rd: Did you hear about the recent protests in France, India, U.S. of A. or Ireland? No?? Well, let me give you a little overview.

This is the current list of activists (9) willing to share their contacts with all of you:
Any other groups willing to be added?
I am also considering to publish this list on the homepage (http://emancipating-education-for-all.org). Does anybody of those eight listed here not want their address to be published on the website?

It might be very useful to have a contact from each group/city/country listed on the homepage, so that activists know who to contact in their region.

Therefore I ask all of you to let me know, if I can publish your group name and email address on the homepage!
Please let me know in the coming days.

But then again, it is great, if more people get involved :)

In Solid,
