We'll be looking at how education, the legal system and the Prevent / Counter-terrorism regime coalesce to create an environment of hate that facilitates the operation of a de facto Police State.

137 SACC - Islamophobia Conference 2016 We'll be looking at how education, the legal system and the Prevent / Counter-terrorism regime coalesce to create an environment of hate that facilitates the operation of a de facto Police State.

In this state citizens are either living in fear and self-censorship, or full and knowing complicity, or exceptionalist complacency or a combination of some or all of the aforesaid. Whilst the primary targets and victims of hateful discourse, discrimination and state and street violence are Muslims, everyone lives in this Environment and this State, many minoritised communities now feel a resurgence of hatred and everyone is impacted negatively.Organised jointly by the Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC) and SACC, and linked to the conference on the same theme being held by IHRC in London on 10 December.

171 Välkommen till Sverige - Migration & asylum in Sweden a Nordic Horizons event with Mikael Ribbenvik, Acting Director of the Swedish Migration Agency

With Mikael Ribbenvik, Acting Director of the Swedish Migration Agency. In 2015 more than 163,000 asylum seekers arrived in Sweden, more per capita than in any other European country, including Germany. The sharp increase in the number of people fleeing Syria and other war-torn countries was labeled a 'migrant crisis' in Europe. How did Sweden deal with the issue? What lessons can be learned? Even before the recent Syrian crisis Sweden was already one of Europe’s most welcoming countries to refugees. But the country has found it dificult to integrate newcomers and find jobs for refugees and asylum seekers with little grasp of the Swedish language. Mikael Ribbenvik, Acting Director of the Swedish Migration Agency, explains why Sweden has become the Nordic nation with the most open attitude to migrants and refugees and shares his experience in managing the recent surge in migration applications.

Our Democracy

Our Democracy

7.00pm Mon 21 Nov 2016
Act As If We Own The Place campaign launch.

597 Our Democracy Act As If We Own The Place campaign launch.

Our Democracy - Act As If We Own The Place is a coalition of organisations, campaigners and politicians who are dedicated to improving our local democracy. The campaign arises from a simple idea: that human beings flourish when they have control over their own lives. We think communities can redesign their local democracy to work better for them, thriving all the more by taking control of their community’s future. To celebrate the launch of the camapign, join us for a public discussion on renewing local democracy featuring: LESLEY RIDDOCH, author of Blossom: What Scotland needs to flourish ROBIN MCALPINE, director of think-tank Common Weal GEHAN MACLEOD, co-founder of GalGael Trust and former resident of Pollok Free State WILLIE SULLIVAN, director of the Electoral Reform Society Scotland At the moment most of us have things done to us; power exercised over us by the government, by the council, or by companies who don’t work with our community interests at their core. This disempowers and patronises us. If democracy is about anything it is about us running our own affairs. That is why we are asking you to ‘act as if you own the place’ - if the citizens of a village, town, city or country don’t own it, then who does? At the launch we will announce a series of Scotland-wide events where local people can gather together to talk about how they want to run that local place. More information about this will be available shortly. There has never been a more exciting time to get involved in the campaign for a better local democracy. Moreover, there has never been a time when it has been more needed. Our democracy isn’t working in the way it should. To renew and extend the control we have in our communities, it needs a shot in the arm from you and your friends and networks. The event is free but so we have an idea of numbers, please reserve tickets using the ticketing link. Facebook Event: https://www.facebook.com/events/283940438668537/

Dr Hamilton:The application of engineering analysis allows numerical data relating to the status of the global oil production system to be derived for historical and future production. This reveals that conventional oil is no longer the rich source

373 Dr Alister Hamilton - Brexit, Oil and the World Economy Dr Hamilton:The application of engineering analysis allows numerical data relating to the status of the global oil production system to be derived for historical and future production. This reveals that conventional oil is no longer the rich source

"In this talk we shall briefly explore the parallels between the UK and “Arab Spring” countries with regard to indigenous primary energy supply dynamics, to show why the UK's vote to leave the European Union might be considered “The English Spring”. We shall show that the application of engineering analysis allows numerical data relating to the status of the global oil production system to be derived for historical and future production. This reveals that conventional oil is no longer the rich source of energy it once was, due to its inevitable depletion. While not apparent using economic analysis, the application of engineering techniques quantifies this process clearly, precisely and verifiably. The entropic decay of the oil production system affects both the price of oil, which will be range limited with a dramatically reducing maximum price, and economic growth rates throughout the world. The use of oil has historically boosted economic growth. We have analysis to show that by 2020 this will no longer be the case and that by 2030, the average barrel of oil will no longer act as an energy source. As a result of this process, production will cease. The world is about to receive an immense energy shock. It is essential that policy makers understand this issue in order to mitigate impact. This presentation will provide an executive briefing of the key issues."

3656 Scotland After Brexit: Lessons from the Nordics highly eminent speakers from Iceland, Finland, Denmark, Norway and the Faroes look at the EU through a Nordic lens

A Nordic Horizons event with support from the University of Edinburgh. How should a small nation like Scotland engage with Europe -- the Nordic countries have experienced every conceivable variant on the theme. Denmark (since 1973), Sweden and Finland (since 1995) are all members of the EU. Iceland and Norway are not EU members but belong to the EEA – the European Economic Area that underpins the EU. Denmark’s devolved governments in the Faroes and Greenland are neither members of the EU nor EEA and only Finland has joined both the EU and the Euro zone. Travel is made easier by the fact that all Nordic nations – whether EU members or not – are part of the Schengen free travel zone. Currencies change at every border yet trade for most Nordic nations is with one another. Inevitably though this is not the whole story. Behind the national picture, attitudes to Europe and the EU in the Nordic region are as complex as anywhere else in Europe, fractured by differences between political parties, economic sectors and social groups and between town and country, core and periphery. Maybe there is something for Scotland to learn.

Academic freedom: "national security" threats in Turkey, India and the UK

10.00am Thu 27 Oct 2016
with speakers from Turkey, India and the UK

livestream by Democracy TV

272 Academic freedom: "national security" threats in Turkey, India and the UK with speakers from Turkey, India and the UK

DESCRIPTION In the past year, neo-populist governments in Turkey and India have taken a series of actions in the name of the “nation” and “national security” against particular universities, individual academics and students who have raised questions or conducted research about these governments’ handling of separatist and oppositional movements. These actions challenge the future of academic freedom more generally. In the UK, government policies and laws on counter terrorism agendas, such as Prevent, now require universities and teachers to monitor speech and even thinking on campus in new ways, while the Home Office is outsourcing monitoring of international students to academics, making them de facto border guards. Against this background of general and specific threats to academic freedom from the national security state in these three countries, this one-day public event will allow us to jointly reflect on some key questions, such as: • Do we need to rethink what academic freedom means to address the kinds of threats universities are facing today? • How do national security logics intersect and magnify other threats to academic freedom? • How can we in the university resist the invasion of national security logics into the space of the university? • What strategies have proved effective in addressing the threats identified? Speakers from the three countries will focus on case studies of specific manifestations of such threats and develop theoretical analyses of these developments, as well as generate ideas for taking action to address them. We have also invited active members from the Reclaiming our University initiative at the University of Aberdeen: they will outline the strategies they have used to bring about change in their home institution, as a case study that will generate ideas on how to address the threats identified during the day. We will also have photo displays of scenes from India and Turkey related to the events discussed. Draft programme: 10:00-10:15am: Welcome 10:15-11:30am: Turkey panel: Who will be next? Academic labour and honour in times of war 11:45am-1:00pm: India panel: “Anti-national” charges deployed to suppress critical voices in universities 1:00-2:00pm: Lunch 2:00-3:15pm: UK panel: outsourcing surveillance to universities 3:15-4:15pm: General debate with panellists and all participants 4:30-6:00pm: Reclaiming our University—how to do it! 6:00-6:15pm: Wrap up 6:30-7:30pm: Reception and short films Speakers include: Prof. Nandini Sundar (Delhi School of Economics), Dr. Papia Sengupta (Jawaharlal Nehru University), Dr. Cetin Gürer (formerly at Nişantaşı University, currently Bremen University), Dr. Tuna Kuyucu (Boğaziçi University), Dr. Martin Mills (University of Aberdeen), Dr. Andrew Neal (University of Edinburgh), Ulrike Flader (DEMOS Research Centre for Peace, Democracy and Alternative Politics, Turkey) This event is funded by the School of Social and Political Science, the Global Justice Academy, the Citizens, Nations and Migration (CNaM) Network and the Centre for South Asian Studies, all at the University of Edinburgh.

Our Democracy Act As If We Own The Place campaign launch.

Our Democracy - Act As If We Own The Place is a coalition of organisations, campaigners and politicians who are dedicated to improving our local democracy. The campaign arises from a simple idea: that human beings flourish when they have control over their own lives. We think communities can redesign their local democracy to work better for them, thriving all the more by taking control of their community’s future. To celebrate the launch of the camapign, join us for a public discussion on renewing local democracy featuring: LESLEY RIDDOCH, author of Blossom: What Scotland needs to flourish ROBIN MCALPINE, director of think-tank Common Weal GEHAN MACLEOD, co-founder of GalGael Trust and former resident of Pollok Free State WILLIE SULLIVAN, director of the Electoral Reform Society Scotland At the moment most of us have things done to us; power exercised over us by the government, by the council, or by companies who don’t work with our community interests at their core. This disempowers and patronises us. If democracy is about anything it is about us running our own affairs. That is why we are asking you to ‘act as if you own the place’ - if the citizens of a village, town, city or country don’t own it, then who does? At the launch we will announce a series of Scotland-wide events where local people can gather together to talk about how they want to run that local place. More information about this will be available shortly. There has never been a more exciting time to get involved in the campaign for a better local democracy. Moreover, there has never been a time when it has been more needed. Our democracy isn’t working in the way it should. To renew and extend the control we have in our communities, it needs a shot in the arm from you and your friends and networks. The event is free but so we have an idea of numbers, please reserve tickets using the ticketing link. Facebook Event: https://www.facebook.com/events/283940438668537/

SACC - Islamophobia Conference 2016 We'll be looking at how education, the legal system and the Prevent / Counter-terrorism regime coalesce to create an environment of hate that facilitates the operation of a de facto Police State.

In this state citizens are either living in fear and self-censorship, or full and knowing complicity, or exceptionalist complacency or a combination of some or all of the aforesaid. Whilst the primary targets and victims of hateful discourse, discrimination and state and street violence are Muslims, everyone lives in this Environment and this State, many minoritised communities now feel a resurgence of hatred and everyone is impacted negatively.Organised jointly by the Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC) and SACC, and linked to the conference on the same theme being held by IHRC in London on 10 December.

The YES Movement A non party afiliated rally for Scottish Independence

The Yes Movement Rally on the 18th of September 2016, this is being held at Glasgow Green from 12pm until 8pm. This is going to be a day to remember. Why come? Why Volunteer? I would like to tell thee. Have any of you ever felt like you were here, to do something great with your life? Well you are and this is why we are all here. We are here to change the world. It is no easy task, but to us it is clear that the task is ours. That is why they called us the Bravest in all the stories. We will show the world there is another way to live, that social and cultural change is inevitable and that a new way of doing things is being birthed. A great human being once said 'Be the change you wish to see in the world'. For too long we have been realising that the entire system is corrupt. We have waited for those in power to change things, For someone to stand up and do what's right. None of them have, not really. We are creating this Movement together. As Humanity we can free ourselves from this system that none of us agreed to when we were born here, by taking our power back and in doing that, we show others how to free themselves from the Elitist system. To put it bluntly, the days of working to pay bills and die are over. We want more for ourselves and the generations to come. We stand for Equality, Contributing and Pioneering our own future. There are new way's to do things now and we all know that, we must venture into the unknown and discover 'HOW?' together. Please email [email protected] Your expertise as a wonderful human being is required if you are a First Aider, Stage Hand, Steward, Chaperone or you would like to set up a stall for the day. Please also feel free to contact us if you have any suggestions/ ideas, or if you would like to help us in anyway. All contributions are most welcomed. The system we live under is broken, we're not fixing it. We want to create a new one. Go bravely friends. We are the change bringers. Please Share this message, We look forward to hearing from you.

Hope Over Fear - We'll be coming, Road to freedom rally Hope Over Fear - We'll be coming, Road to freedom rally with lots of music and family fun activity.

From organisers: As promised, at our previous rally in "Freedom Square, Hope over Fear are organising this event to, once again mark the anniversary of the 2014 Scottish independence referendum and more importantly, send a clear message to our First minister that "We're Still Yes," our numbers are growing and we're' ready for #indyref2 whenever it is called. We understand that Nicola has a very precarious road to navigate, avoiding the various pitfalls set by the establishment and their lackeys in the MSM, before setting a date for #indyref2 but we know it is coming. Despite the attacks and smears from the Msm and their lackeys "We'll be Coming" and aiming to build on our previous, hugeley successful events in order to let our First minister know that the grassroots are ready, the seeds of Independence are growing stronger and in the words of the Graham Brown Band "the passion for freedom in our eyes" is burning brighter than before. This will be a well organised family friendly event with speakers, performers and entertainment for all to enjoy. Acts and speakers will be announced in due course.

We'll be talking about the failure of British politics to change the lives of ordinary people, and how we can do things differently. In addition we will discuss and debate the changing terrain on which we must build a new grassroots movement for independence.

'Resolution 20' Hemp & Medical Cannabis - SNP Fringe Event SNP Conference Fringe Event

During the SNP Autumn Conference, on Saturday the 15th at 12:30 to 1:30pm, we want to hold a fringe meeting to discuss and bring to wider attention the positive aspects of Medical Marijuana and Industrial Hemp and how they can benefit Scotland. We will do this by facilitating an open discussion and hopefully through this break the myths that surround Cannabis and Hemp. We have two speakers confirmed: Laura Brennan - Whitefield, who has MS and Alistair MacKinnon, who has continued side effects from hepatitis C infection; both conditions can be alleviated by the medical use of Cannabis. Across the globe, as the decriminalisation and legalisation of Cannabis continues, we know that we could be helped, as the accelerated pace of research surrounding the medicinal value of Cannabis becomes extensive. We also wish to see the rejuvenation and increase in the industrial production of Hemp. Historically, the cultivation of industrial Hemp in Scotland was widespread, from Caithness to the Lothians and from the Outer Hebrides to Galloway. With over 500 possible products, it is time for this extremely useful plant to be reinstated as an agricultural product and its uses supported by industry and Government. We hope that the outcomes of this initial discussion at Conference will, firstly, create a petition to the UK Government to devolve drugs policy to Scotland, and secondly, petition the Scottish Government to allow for the medicinal use of Cannabis as well as supporting and creating a Hemp industry. Fringe meetings at the SNP aren't cheap and we are hoping that crowdfunding will help ordinary members like ourselves to be able to fund a fringe meeting at conferences. We are looking for £1127 to cover costs and expenses. £1027 are the stated costs for the room, and £100 for printing documents, leaflets and flyers for the event day. https://www.gofundme.com/2ga3zfdk Please help us get this necessary discussion into the heart of Scottish politics.

Stand Up To Racism Scottish Conference a national conference bringing together speakers, organisations and other activists to discuss how we can tackle the rise of Islamophobia, racism, anti-semitism and how we defend civil liberties

A racist offensive is sweeping Europe, with governments and the right-wing media using migrants, refugees and Muslims as scapegoats for an economic crisis and wars they did not create. The racist tide will only be driven back by anti- racists standing up and confronting it. From Germany to Greece to the USA, people who want a society free from racism are saying no more. People are taking to the streets in large numbers to oppose racism, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism and to say migrants and refugees are welcome here. The EU Referendum campaign unleashed some of the most heinous racism and far-right nationalism we have seen in generations. Both sides used dehumanising language about refugees, and migrants became the number one scapegoat for falls in living standards, we are now witnessing a horrific increase in violent hate crimes. Exactly the same racist arguments were used against Jews, Irish, African, Caribbean, Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi communities. The Tories will use Brexit to whip up yet more anti-immigrant racism and accelerate their austerity policies and attacks on living standards. However people voted in the referendum, we now need to unite and take to the streets to demand an end to austerity policies, to stand up to anti-immigrant racism and show our solidarity with refugees and migrants. On 19th March 2016 over 20,000 people from across Britain took to the streets in Glasgow, London and Cardiff to say Refugees are Welcome Here and mark UN anti-racism day. Students and trade unionists, people of all faiths and none, migrants, musicians, teachers, pensioners and parents, took to the streets to make a defiant stand against racism. Together we showed unity in the face of racism. We will be back next year for another huge demonstration against all forms of racism. Unity is our strength so we cannot let racism divide us. We are the majority and we will stand up to racism.

Scottish Independence Convention Presents The Reassembly Elaine C Smith will be hosting the many guests from across the country and the movement... and we will then be able to get down to some serious discussion about the way ahead...

Exactly two years on from the referendum, The Scottish Independence Convention are having a social event for all interested Indy groups to launch the next phase... to bring us all together, encourage dialogue, listen to some speeches, poetry, comedy and enjoy some music. We need all that energy, artistic endeavour, hard work and good old political discussion to get started again ( though it has never really gone away) and we need to establish a gathering place for all the groups,individuals, artists and ideas that made the Yes movement so vital in the journey towards self determination and Independence. Elaine C Smith will be hosting the many guests from across the country and the movement... and we will then be able to get down to some serious discussion about the way ahead.

The YES Movement A non party afiliated rally for Scottish Independence

The Yes Movement Rally on the 18th of September 2016, this is being held at Glasgow Green from 12pm until 8pm. This is going to be a day to remember. Why come? Why Volunteer? I would like to tell thee. Have any of you ever felt like you were here, to do something great with your life? Well you are and this is why we are all here. We are here to change the world. It is no easy task, but to us it is clear that the task is ours. That is why they called us the Bravest in all the stories. We will show the world there is another way to live, that social and cultural change is inevitable and that a new way of doing things is being birthed. A great human being once said 'Be the change you wish to see in the world'. For too long we have been realising that the entire system is corrupt. We have waited for those in power to change things, For someone to stand up and do what's right. None of them have, not really. We are creating this Movement together. As Humanity we can free ourselves from this system that none of us agreed to when we were born here, by taking our power back and in doing that, we show others how to free themselves from the Elitist system. To put it bluntly, the days of working to pay bills and die are over. We want more for ourselves and the generations to come. We stand for Equality, Contributing and Pioneering our own future. There are new way's to do things now and we all know that, we must venture into the unknown and discover 'HOW?' together. Please email [email protected] Your expertise as a wonderful human being is required if you are a First Aider, Stage Hand, Steward, Chaperone or you would like to set up a stall for the day. Please also feel free to contact us if you have any suggestions/ ideas, or if you would like to help us in anyway. All contributions are most welcomed. The system we live under is broken, we're not fixing it. We want to create a new one. Go bravely friends. We are the change bringers. Please Share this message, We look forward to hearing from you.

Hope Over Fear are organizing this 2015 event to coincide with the anniversary of the referendum and to make a clear statement that our journey to full Independence for our nation continues. Our First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon has stated clearly that it will be the people of Scotland who will determine if and when there is an #indyref2. Lets fill Freedom Square and the surrounding streets of Glasgow on September 19th to make our voices heard. 2018 is an ideal year for #indyref2 as it is clear in terms of elections north and south of the border. (2016 Scottish parliament, 2017 Scottish council, 2019 English council and 2020 General election.) Join us on the Square with the message, #Indyref2 2018.

HOPE OVER FEAR: SEIZE THE DAY RALLY George Square, Glasgow. Lots of great speakers including Mark McGowan, The Artist Taxi Driver plus great music...

The Hope Over Fear campaign will not shirk its responsibilities. On May 7th 2015 we have a unique opportunity in Scotland to wipe out the blue, yellow and red Tories in one fell swoop. We can electorally punish those who lined up with the billionaires and millionaires to lie, deceive and bully our nation into submission. We are not too small, too poor or too scared to move forward into a new and better world and by uniting the pro-Scotland and anti-Establishment vote in May 2015 we can realise our dreams. Bring the family and enjoy another great day out while listening to the speakers from all political backgrounds and on the importance of using your vote wisely at the general election. There will also be many amazingly talented artists and musicians for you to enjoy on the day. In the words of Gerry Cinnamon's inspiring anthem of our movement, "Hope Over Fear, Carpe Diem". Let’s seize the day in 2015. NOTE: Mark McGowan, The Artist Taxi Driver will be one of the speakers :) FACEBOOK EVENT: https://www.facebook.com/events/401561463337441/

BBC Bias Peaceful Protest #2 Around 1:30 - 3:30pm BBC Bias Peaceful Protest #2 - The People's Voice!

BBC Bias Peaceful Protest #2 - The People's Voice! Sunday, June 29 at 1:30pm - 3:30pm BBC Scotland Studios, Pacific Quay G51 1 Glasgow, United Kingdom This is a protest against bias from the self-proclaimed “impartial” BBC. The most important issue we need to highlight is the repeated omission of relevant facts, information & answers that has kept Scotland in the dark about the real independence debate. The BBC’s coverage is ruining the run up to the biggest decision in our history. People are suitably sickened by the BBC & other mainstream media and their one sided conveyor belt of scare stories portrayed against our economic prospects, EU membership and the currency of an independent Scotland. Sometimes the bias is not in what they do cover but what they don't cover in their news & current affairs programmes. Specific examples of bias that concerns us are as follows: Make up of Question Time panels. Irish & Luxembourg EU ministers views misrepresented. UKIP promotion during EU elections. University of the West of Scotland report on bias on evening news programmes (BBC & STV) University of the West of Scotland report on bias on Radio Scotland Good Morning Scotland show The BBC's membership of the CBI which opposes independence and even tried to become an official member of the no campaign until a U turn after a mass cancellation of membership by Scottish companies. Different styles of questioning for Yes/No including more frequent interruptions from interviewers. The list goes on… Let's keep up the pressure on the old BBC and arrange their next outing as a massive anti-bias operation! Bring your saltires, banners, balloons, friends, family and loud voices. Make it a day to remember! Everyone is welcome from both sides of the debate. Groups that wish to protest about other instances of BBC bias unrelated to the independence debate are also more than welcome to attend.
