Saturday 6th October – Compelling Conversations 1
Call to Action
Muneer Malik (Head of the Supreme Court Bar Association) has announced a nation-wide strike call to protest law-enforcement/police brutality against civil society, the lawyers, and the media.
Is this form of protest meaningful in the 21st century? If so, how do we participate? If not, what are the alternatives? How can we ignite a movement to reclaim our rights? This is not about “If not Musharraf, then who?” This is about registering a strong protest and expressing outrage against ongoing crimes inflicted upon civil society and the media.
We would really like to hear sane voices with ideas about how to mobilize using technology, social networking tools, text messaging, design, and the energy of the young and not so jaded. And you know what, being apathetic is so last century. Show up and let’s talk.
