Catalyst Social Centre, 146 Sydney Rd, Coburg (in the cafe)
Wurundjeri Country

On the unceded land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. Sovereignty never ceded.

During the recent and ongoing violent occupation of Palestine many of us have been drawn to or engaged in various solidarity actions. We have been trying, failing, asking, examining and learning about what solidarity might mean. At the same time we are witnessing the violent deaths of so many.

Organising within and alongside the context of violence and trauma has raised tensions and exposed internal limits to struggle. Too often collectives and radical organisations have collapsed after grappling with these limits, oftentimes around interpersonal conflict and harm.

In this discussion, we want to explore these tensions and what a principled practice of addressing harm and conflict in struggle might look like within a shared politic and across difference.

We would like to offer these readings as a way to ground the conversation and encourage you to engage in them before the discussion.

* After Accountability - Peter Hardie
* Endnotes #5 The Passions and the Interests - Revolutionary Motives
* We Will Not Cancel Us - Unthinkable Thoughts
