It is desirable that as many organisations as possible participate in this meeting to strengthen our Network.
Ethic Etape, centre de rencontres internationales de séjour de DIJON
Arrival: Thursday around 1pm to allow for an on-time start.
Meeting: from Thursday 21 April at 3pm to Sunday 24 April at 12pm.
A welcome for comrades will be organised at Dijon station.
We ask all organisations to meet a minimum cost, although this represents a significant financial effort: it is neither desirable nor possible for the total cost to be met by a handful of organisations or by state grants.
The cost is 270€ per person and includes
- accommodation for the three nights
- all meals from the evening of Thursday 21 April to midday on Sunday 24 April.
For non-European organisations the cost can be reduced to 170 euros; the difference will be paid by a solidarity fund.
Solidarity fund :
CSP-Conlutas, CGT and Solidaires have set up a joint solidarity fund to enable the participation of organisations in difficulty. Let us know quickly if you need financial help. Let us also know if your organisation can (even modestly, everything will be useful) contribute to this fund.

Meetings by sectors
The number of sectoral workshops will be established on the basis of the professional sectors of the comrades registered for the meeting. It seems that we can already foresee the list indicated above, but this must be confirmed by your registrations.
Debate and contributions
There is an urgent need for organisations to write texts, especially on the following themes: international situation, ecology, women's struggles, privatisation, repression, self-management, etc.
Important: we ask that texts be sent to us already translated into at least English, French and Spanish at email@example.com
Our 4th meeting is an opportunity to strengthen the International Trade Union Solidarity and Struggle Network through meetings by professional sector and collective reflection on the subjects that the organisations will have considered as priorities, as well as through the adoption of a work plan and common tools that will allow us to strengthen the anti-capitalist, self-managing, democratic, environmentalist trade unionism of struggles, independent of the bosses and governments, internationalist, and fighting against all forms of oppression (machism, racism, homophobia, xenophobia).
