Last Call for Alternatives’ Days Registration

Tuesday 2 August 2011, by Melissa Wils-Owens

Since 1994, Alternatives Montreal has focused Canadian interest in social and political activism through an annual event called Alternatives’ Days.

Both an opportunity for Canadian camaraderie and strategy development, Alternatives’ Days is a weekend of activities related to current social, economic, political and environmental concerns. Activists and artists from within and outside Quebec, as well as international partners, official guests and members of Alternatives come together to share analyses, reflections, music and good will. Activities include panel discussions with well-known public figures, a variety of practical workshops, cultural activities, kiosques for community organizations and local produce, evenings around the bonfire and open air activities for the whole family. This year’s theme is Revolutions Facing Neo-liberalism, referring particularly to the Arab Spring. Alternatives’ Days exposes concerns, entices discussion and illuminates the need for global solidarity, making it a pivotal occasion. It will be held from August 19-21 at Camp Papillon de St-Alphonse de Rodriguez in the Lanaudière region.
