COCo at the Peoples Social Forum Planning Assembly
Over the weekend of the 26th and 27th of January, COCo staff member Spencer Mann had a chance to attend a planning general assembly for a Canada, Quebec, and Indigenous Peoples Social Forum. The purpose of the assembly was to officially launch the social forum and set-up the structure of the forum and hold the initial discussions on the themes, process, date and place of the Peoples Social Forum. Some of the highlights of the weekend included reports from the Original Peoples Caucus and the People of Colour Caucus. Another highlight was a talk and Q&A from 2 of the founders of Idle No More.
