  • CAMPERSpeak: Peer sharing + inclusive - infrastructure + a banjo = a free-form camp + 100% fun | Info-Activism a project of Tactical Technology Collective
    be much higher at this camp FN Do you expect very concrete outcomes in participant skill or enthusiasm levels after the camp Absolutely The most concrete outcome we re always aiming for is new friendships and stronger ties between participants so that they can continue to support one another and collaborate long after the event In addition since many workshops will focus on the specific needs of specific campaigns we re hoping to have significant impact with regard to supporting those campaigns We want folks to leave here with practical tools and knowledge they can apply immediately upon return to their activism work This is a community of practice which rarely gets to convene in such a focused and supportive context So we re hoping the overall community vibe will sustain well beyond our time in Bangalore FN As one of the two lead facilitators what are the three biggest challenges before you In any international event language is always a challenge We will strive to be inclusive working on keeping the diction slow and the vocabulary accessible to those for whom the primary language of the event is less familiar A second challenge is pacing across the span of the event participants are on the ground here for 7 12 days and so it s very important to make sure we conserve energy and momentum in order to finish strongly We ll take a day off in the middle of the week for recreation and encourage each participant to take care of themselves and to establish a pace they can sustain for the duration of the camp But of course we will all still end up happily exhausted at the end And the third is certainly infrastructure we re still not sure if the facility will bear the load of all our electrical needs we don t have the internet set up yet but we know that there will bandwidth issues And with lots of folks sleeping in tents we want to make sure everyone is comfortable FN In a multi cultural camp of this kind with global participation how do you ensure that diverse cultural traditions and current awareness levels are taken care of There is no single thing we do it s an ongoing process We use an agenda format that treats all participants as equals there are no stars who give keynotes or pontificate from panels We encourage each participant to create their own experience and encourage everyone to see themselves as being in service to one another We also have several special sessions where people are encouraged to share from their own cultures traditions and interests The Bazaar is a place where folks can share objects they have brought from their region or teach others skills unique to their own background We have an open mike night where participants are encouraged to sing a song or perform something traditional or unique to their region And artistic activities in the program will let folks express themselves

  • CAMPERSpeak: Recipe for info-activism: Keep it simple. Be inclusive. Make mistakes. | Info-Activism a project of Tactical Technology Collective
    Justice in Bhopal formed in 2004 It adopted IT in order to reach out and retain its international supporters The campaign website http www bhopal net and its numerous blogs became a primary source of communication and information dissemination It sometimes gets even employed for non violent direct actions like fax and phone actions It also helped in forming a large Students for Bhopal solidarity network in the US that has spread to over 40 universities and schools across the US http www studentsforbhopal org This transformation was more in response to the growing use of IT in activism It has helped the campaign tremendously in retaining the public memory of the disaster however the challenge to come up with new ideas remains constant FN Do you feel the Bhopal campaign has succeeded or failed over the years or leaves a lot more to be yet done Why It has been extremely successful just in terms of introducing the 1984 multinational gas leak disaster at Bhopal to young people and people from the various walks of life There is of course scope for a lot more given the sheer diversity within IT There is also a debate among the campaign groups within the movement over the use of technology which is often considered unconventional by grassroots organisations who believe that use of technology only reinforces social classifications in this case by creating a digital divide FN Please tell us about CEM How big is it how does it work and what are its priorities Community Environmental Monitoring CEM is a grassroot support organisation working with pollution impacted communities in Tamil Nadu The CEM initiative seeks to involve communities in the fight against pollution by engaging them in environmental and health monitoring and sustainable livelihood activities CEM is as much about the community as it is about the environment CEM sees political empowerment and the right to make informed decisions about development as key to success in the struggle against environmental casteism and discrimination While local self help is emphasised CEM s philosophy also hinges on holding corporations and polluters accountable Currently CEM works with communities in Cuddalore Mettur and Trichy in Tamil Nadu It has also assisted communities in Goa Gujarat Andhra Pradesh and Kerala See http www sipcotcuddalore com FN Why do you feel Bhopal is still an important issue Bhopal is relevant to all our lives today Our industries and chemical facilities are still operated with similar negligence and we continue to ignore signs that tell us that things are not right The disaster was not just an event it highlighted the serious flaws in our social systems and structures that we still continue to operate within There were lessons in Bhopal and we know from our work in CEM that those lessons are still relevant There is a constant battle with the state to implement and the corporations to adhere to the environmental laws the goal towards collective realisation is still afar and Bhopal continues to inspire
