1. DOOR-TO-DOOR CANVASSING FOR GRASSROOTS CAMPAINGS.
Politicians and their supporters go knocking on doors when it’s election time because it works. Grassroots movements can and should learn how to use this tactic year-round to rebuild community around common needs, and grassroots campaigns. Londoners for door-to-door are doing just that, catalysing the public to support the Postal Workers campaign to save door-to-door delivery of mail. Come learn how to effectively hit the streets in your neighbourhood, interact with people at their doors, and convert passive dissatisfaction into active participation in your campaigns and movements. http://
2. DROPPING BANNERS, GAINING VISIBILITY .
A well-timed and well-positioned banner drop can be one of the most effective tactics for making a statement, getting press, speaking directly to the broader public, or protesting an event. What are the best fabrics, paints, fasteners, weights? Where are the best locations? How do you navigate legal concerns? Come learn the basics of making and deploying a banner from Mark C., a grassroots Indigenous anti-poverty organiser from Kitchener with over a decades’ experience fighting for a better world and dropping show-stealing, eye-grabbing, message-blasting banners.
3. THIS IS AN INTERVENTION!
Let’s talk about Points of intervention. This training provides you with strategies for intervening at crucial leverage points within the system. Whether it’s a rally, an occupation, a walk-out, or a strike, knowing this information can help you effectively achieve your campaign goals. Presented by your CSA Commissioners and the Pay More Get Less campaign at the University of Guelph. www.guelphstudents.org
4. OCCUPY AND SHUT IT DOWN!
Ever since thousands of activists swarmed city squares from Wall Street to Cairo “Occupy” has been seen as a movement rather than the highly effective and disruptive tactic that it is. There is a deep history of grassroots movements all over the world using this tactic in their struggles against the rich and powerful.. and winning. Come learn the basics of organising an occupation! How do you hold space and defend it effectively? How do you time it for maximum disruption? Keeping it a secret vs. mass callout? What tools can be helpful for holding the space after the police arrive? What are different roles people can take on to support the action? Etc. Presented by a highly experienced occupier and organiser with the Rising Tide Network. www.risingtidenorthamerica

Did you pay attention to the names I highlighted in red ?
Mandy Hiscocks is a convicted G20 urban terrorist who was sent to prison for her crimes. To this day, she remains unrepentant .
Another speaker, one who needs no introduction is Sakura Saunders . Sakura is a well known eco terrorist who love wearing disguises to go into corporate office and video the executives . She did exactly that back in about December of 2013
Of course no organizing meeting is complete with out Canada’s most notorious and dangerous profession riot organizer, OCAP’s John Clarke. He is a highly dangerous urban terrorist and if there was a riot in this city over the past 25 years, he was behind them .He imports riotors from Quebec as what took place during the G20 and the queens park riots, But as big a mouth as he has to incite riots, He will usually y watch them from the comfort of his living room. This time, lets all help make his viewing pleasure and experience he will never forget ….. from inside a prison cell .
Now we need to look at who is organizing this event. Darius Mirshahi is the husband of Sakura Saunders. He was arrested but charges where dropped against him during the G20 But make no mistake, they dont come much more radical than him .
This event will no doubt have in attendance many of the most hard core of the anarchists , who’s IQ level is considerably smaller that even the smallest pebble they may throw .
Be prepared, these people want to create mayhem and destruction and the Pan Am games and the Pan Am summit on July 08 is a tailor made event just for them.
