LET’S LEARN TOGETHER – the purpose of this blog

This blog is meant as a new path for me (not in the spiritual nor egoistical way), which I will keep open for other comrades. I do not promise to keep it up daily, at this time, as other work inevitably will take precedence. I do believe that meeting people, face to face in an organising effort for a better and more just world, and I hope this blog can spur us on in this endeavour. Whilst face-to-face meetings are preferable to email or cyberactivism, it does play a role in organising around ideas and hopefully, if we can utilise our ideas to make a difference, materially and in our thinking, we begin to rejoice over small victories. We intend to use the papers, in the Theorising Practice section of this blog (the third reincarnation of the Development Update), if reformatted for a printed / or photocopied edition.

Other articles not meant for Theorising Practice, will also be published to ensure we can both be creators of ideas and willingly share ideas of others as we walk the long walk to justice, equality and solidarity. Solidarity for me is both a means and a goal, and in a small way I hope all who participate can assist in rediscovering the joys and challenges of building solidarity. Let’s learn together.
