Den iranske ambassaden ønsker at SAIH fjerne plakat.

Som mange kanskje har fått med seg så er SAIHs kampanje i år utdanning for frigjøring og kampanjeplakaten var lagd som en filmplakat; flere tidligere diktatorer som løper fra kjempestudenter med bøker i hånden. En av disse diktatorene er ayatollah Komeini i selskap med bl.a. Hitler, Mugabe, og Gaddafi, for å nevne noen. Dette har utløst sterke reaksjoner fra den iranske ambassaden som ber om at plakaten skal fjernes fordi den er støtende.

“Branding in Serbia”

On Tuesday we had a lecture with Siniša Šikman from CANVAS who was a part of the student movement who was active under the regime of Slobodan Miloševic in Serbia. The organization’s history starts with the regime of Miloševic. The organisation that Šikman was a part of was under the mass protest was called Otpor and they grew larger with time, but they did not want any leaders in fear of ending up like their government. Their goal was to ridicule the regime and to make people laugh at it and by that remove the fear for the government; they also wanted freedom and fair elections.

In 2002 the first free election were held in Serbia and Šikman was one of those that were engaged in rebuilding the country. Many people became interested in the work that Šikman and his fellows did so many travelled to Belgrade to learn from them and their experience. This new founded interest sparked the initiative to make curriculum; books that others could use to learn from and soon they started training others as well. This was the creation of CANVAS (Centre for Applied Non Violent Actions and Strategies). They wanted to continue their work in a more structured way as well as working for improving non-violent solutions that would work well in different situations and for different activist groups.

CANVAS have managed to accomplish some things over the years; they have had more than 123 workshop conferences, with more than 2000 attending, three masters’ programmes at the University of Belgrade, and they have trained several organizations that have been successful in their home countries ; Georgia, Ukraine, Lebanon and the Maldives, to mention a few. In addition they have on-going projects in Venezuela, Zimbabwe, Bolivia, Belarus, Burma, Vietnam, Tibet and the Middle East. This is quite an accomplishment since they are currently only eleven working in the organisation at the moment. CANVAS are an growing organisation and they are an inspiration for others; we in SAIH-Ås wish them good luck in their future work.

Day two in the Campaign Week!

Today we had two waffle stands at campus, handing out free waffles and flyers promoting tonight’s lecture and the movie night on Thursday.

In the hour from 12:00 to 13:00 we arranged a stunt in the Economy Cantine. Four activists were placed around in the stairway and inside the cantine, sitting perfectly still with hands tied at their backs, duct tape over their mouths and sign around their neck explaining about students’ situations in other countries.

We got very good reponse from people walking by and some response by email:

“Jeg så deres tankeprovoserende, kraftig, berørende stunt i kantinen i dag. Det var veldig bra, og dere må gratuleres.”

All in all we are very pleased with today’s work, so thanks to everyone who helped out today and we are looking forward to the remaining part of the Campaign Week!

Høstsamling 2011!

SAIH Ås sin president, Emilie, dro på høstsamling og har skrevet et lite innlegg om dette. Ellers håper jeg at alle har hatt en god ferie og ønsker både nye og gamle aktivister velkommen tilbake til nok et spennende semester her på Ås og ellers i landet!

4 aktivistet fra SAIH- Ås var med på SAIHs idylliske høstsamling på Strandheim leirsted på Nærsnes. Dette var en helt herlig helg bestående av spennende foredrag, kreativt kampanjearbeid og underholdning. Særlig foredraget til Martina Vucasovic som foralte om studentopprøret i Serbia og filmen om studentleder Diego Marin gjorde inntrykk. Ellers var det også veldig moro å prøve å komme på aktuelle stunts og aktiviteter som kan gjøres under årets kampanjeuke. Alt i alt er SAIH- Ås veldig førnøyde med høstsamingen og sitter igjen med inspirasjon og motivasjon til videre arbeid i lokallaget.

Se bilder fra høstsamlingen på: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150224903827168.282944.65439442167&type=1
