Chat Meeting #11 (Soli Partnerships)

April 16th: Global Chat Meeting
to Coordinate Solidarity Partnerships for May Day 2017 (and beyond)

The chat meetings are an important part of the tools of communication in the coordination process of the Transcontinental May Day 2017. Notes of previous chat meetings are available inside this pad. The next chat meeting will take place on Sunday, April 16th, at 4pm UTC!

A first ten chat meetings to discuss the idea and agree on a common framework already took place since September 2016.
They were joined by people in Dhaka, Hamburg, Rabat, somewhere on the Philippines and in Malaysia, Madrid, Nijmegen, Louvain, Koblenz, West Bengal as well as Florida.
Like the previous chat meeting this one will be dedicated to the coordination of so called solidarity partnerships in context of the call for a Transcontinental May Day 2017. The chat will be a space to network, introduce ongoing labour struggles and work on sustainable connections beyond May Day.

And for those of you who have a profile on fb, there is this event page.
