is it too late to add needs of parents/children in there somewhere?
i know there aren't a lot of people who take care of little children
(mostly their parents) with indymedia and i know that it's probably
impossible to have a child care corner in camden center (even though
that would make participation in media activities a lot easier for
parents). but i know that there are some people in london trying to find
still - my experience is that people who have children start considering
going somewhere when they (we) see that children are welcome, that there
are facilities that will actualy make it possible to take part in the 'fun'.
that means: other children/parents, a place for kids to
play/be/sleep/eat somewhere nearby, willingness of others to share child
care. (i know this is not the main point in being in london for esf, but
children *can* be fun!), smoke-free venues.
when there is no mention of this in a call or invitation i also often
think that it is probably going to be very difficult to do anything else
than look inside from the outside and to get to know the local
playgrounds all by myself with my son. i've had that happen at several
summits, the esf in florence etc.
im a bit late, i know - the call was posted on
translations.indymedia.org just now. i'd still like to know what you
think about adding something. i'm not yet proposing anything concrete
because - as you can see - i can go on about this subject quite a bit
and tend to be extensive ;).
i will however make a more concrete proposal if you think that in
general it is ok. if anyone else feels like putting it in and is able to
make it short: feel free ;)
