What are the psychological effects of the stress experienced in activism, such as (but not limited to) police violence, resposibility for own and other's safety, constant stress of "low level" repression, ... ?
We want to focus on how we as a community can deal with that. What structure can we provide for each other? What does solidarity mean in this context?
We can offer our experience at the g8, some background knowledge, especially about trauma (post-traumatic stress "disorder"), some information about what's going on in other countries.
