About the Event

These dinners are our offer to the community of Stroud to come together in these times of crisis and start talking across the generations and yummy vegan dinner. This month we'll be learning from our siblings in Somos Semillas (who will be joining on Zoom) about Indigenous Resistance Day (12th October) and why they're inviting us to be part of it!

Many more people than ever are talking about Indigenous People and their vital importance as part of our global family. Originally named 'Columbus Day' after the so-called 'discovery' (more like invasion) of Columbus in the Caribbean - this day has been reclaimed by Indigenous Peoples across the world and has become a powerful international rallying cry, into which we're invited through RYSE's part in the PRALER process.

Our sibling Marina will bring us her wisdom from 6:30-7, before posing some key questions and leaving us as a community to discuss them and dive in deeper together. And so as always, it'll be very much a space for sharing from our own experiences and about the video/picture prompts we bring - so no need to be an expert, as we always quote from The Zapatistas - 'Between all of us we know everything' - and this is very much our attempt to bring together people from across the community to start having the big essential conversations.

Any questions email us at theryse@riseup.net and we'll get back to you asap - love and power from The RYSE team 🔥💚✊
