Workshop - Rights Are Revolution

category national | rights, freedoms and repression | event notice author Thursday May 29, 2014 09:38author by Deborah - Vegan Information Project Report this post to the editors

a consensus-based workshop

rights are revolution - a consensus-based workshop on the theory of rights, from an anarchists and radical feminist perspective

The Outhouse
Capel Street
Dublin

4th June 2014
7pm to 9pm

this workshop will, as usual, be in two parts -

1) a short talk on the radical feminist and anarchist challenges to a rights-based philosophy, and how these theories are not inherently incompatible and can be part of a single revolutionary challenge to the established order. optional q&a session to follow

2) a consensus-based workshop where we will explore some of the following issues, through discussion and practical exercises

a) the distinction between moral and legal rights

b) what 'rights' have meant as part of a patriarchal capitalist society, and what a real understanding of rights could mean as the moral baseline of our struggle

c) the rhetoric of rights - how a rights-based position can inform the language we use when engaging with others, and the revolutionary possibilities offered by this

d) rights vs needs - an exploration of the feminist ‘ethic of care’ position, how it differs from the concept of moral rights, an if and how the two could co-exist in our movement

e) where have the ‘rights’ gone in animal rights? - an exploration of what rights-based vegan campaigns would look like, and how they would change the currently inconsistent and confused face of our movement

we will also hopefully have time for a practical section on this last issue, where we can share ideas on rights-based theory, and its potential in practice to change what we do as advocates, from the language and slogans we use, to the actions we organise an take part in

thanx as always from the facilitator to all her creative and thoughtful fellow participants, and to the people currently away from us on various adventures - you are missed!
