But aside from that, many concrete plans and ideas emerged from the many workshops during the two days, including the formation of a grassroots network against the war, based on regional structures, the possible staging of Reclaim The Streets Belfast, and the suggestion to hold the next People's Global Action conference in Ireland. In fact the only problem that seemed to occur was that of two or more interesting workshops coinciding and the sheer lack of time to attend everything.
A special word of thanks has to go out to the Belfast crew for all their hard work and the organisation of this, the third Grassroots Gathering. It was a roaring success thanks to their hospitality and meticulous attention to detail!
The next Grassroots Gathering will take place in Limerick on Patrick's Day weekend in 2003. In the meantime, stay tuned for details on local actions and come to Shannon Warport to protest on the 8th of December!
