september 22nd is "international car free day" like other years the irish government have planned very little so plans are underway for the big day
state of emergency - car free day ; 22nd september
a network of different people who are working for a more sustainable world has formed and seeks your assistance and input
we are hoping to further the critical discussion and dreaming in society with more and more people and from that do a few things to demonstrate how things can be more ecological
"state of emergency" is coming into play.....
starting to push the critical discussion
the world is sad she needs more dreams
What's your dream?
the world is sad, she needs more dreams
it is hoped that there will be a live stream (an audio transmission/ a audio and visual transission/ 2 way audio and visual stream through webcams and screens) on the day between different nodes around planet, primarly between the streets of dublin and the monks garden in venice (venue for irish partipitation in venice bienelle (art olympics)), but also with the possibility of more nodes connecting up or tuning into and participating in this experimental system
it is hoped that various indymedia groups can help with the tek end of this ambitios proposal
dublin eco city group
here in dublin we have set up an eco city group, we are attempting to make an 18km eco corridor for the city, we have created our first of many food production community gardens on the corridor, we do cycles around the circular eco corridor every month, we are in process of setting up a social centre for the city. presently there is an exhibition in the dolphins barn pulic library about the garden.
i was part of imc-oxford when imc-uk decentralised and am part of imc-ireland in a very loose way - mostly writing stuff, photos and audio, also give small imc workshops to different community groups and put on screenings with same groups and sometimes put on screening on the streets
imc is more than a website- a multitude of clusters tuning into and participating in the "critical discussion"
this is an initial call out to see if there is interest from other groups or practical support in making it happen. it is also a request to tell us what plans are underway in your areas for international car free day.... critical mass, reclaim the streets, state sanctioned car free zones, free public transport, eco festivals........
we will be meeting up physically and having discussions and workshops in the garden or other city spaces, we also hope to have online meetings about tek end with other imc'istas if there is interest.
we are aware that is ambitious but it is a STATE OF EMERGENCY, because without a radical change in the way this planet is being exploited life for our species comes to an end here on our home
thanks for your time
