Occupy! Occupy! Occupy! Conference

The Occupy! Occupy! Occupy! Conference will explore occupations as a tactic in industrial, community, student and environmental disputes.

Not only is 2021 an important year for us, it also marks the anniversary of a number of other notable occupations in the central belt of Scotland: Upper Clyde Shipbuilders, Glasgow (50th Anniversary); Lee Jeans, Greenock (40th Anniversary); Lovable, Cumbernauld (40th Anniversary); Kinning Park Complex, Glasgow (25th Anniversary): Free Heatherington, University of Glasgow (10th Anniversary) and the Occupy Movements in Glasgow and Edinburgh (10th Anniversary). We will also be including: Timex; Caterpillar; Pollok Free State and Faslane Peace Camp. We will use the 20th anniversary of the occupation of the Baths as a starting point to celebrate other occupations in the central belt of Scotland with a variety of speakers: from those directly involved in the occupations to academics and researchers working in the area.

There will be a new performance & video piece by Donna Rutherford and we will be launching the Govanhill Baths Occupation 4 page comic strip by Magic Torch Comics which will kick start our graphic novel covering the occupations in the conference to be published in March 2022.
