Pages about the stations

The following pages collect all material relating to militant reflection stations that were organised in specific cities or regions to make if easier to find.

Tips & methods for hosting events

The militant reflection events that were organised so far were all different, ranging from an evening event focused on a single topic to a weekend of dicussions without predetermined topics. We consider this diversity one of the strength of holding decentral discussion events in that they can be organised according to the specific needs and possibilities of the local people participating, yet contribute to a shared movement-wide process. We will collect experiences, tips and reports about organising these events here. Besides this, if you are planning to organise a militant reflection station two good ways to get started are to visit another station and/or get in touch with the editorial collective at milref [at] riseup.net (PGP key).
