Pavement dwellers to present their book at two events / Only 17 hours left to bring our book tour to Europe and North America

7 09 2011

To all supporters of the Symphony Way and Western Cape Anti-Eviction Campaign,

The Symphony Way Pavement Dwellers will be presenting their book at two events in Cape Town today and tomorrow:

  • SA Cities Studies Conference – Along with other authors, we will be presenting our book, No Land! No House! No Vote! at 5pm tonight (7th Sep) at the Kimberley Hotel on Roeland Street in Central Cape Town. For more information, click here.
  • Making a home in temporary spaces: film and photography by Sydelle Willow Smith – Symphony Way will be speaking and displaying their book at 6pm tomorrow (8th Sep) at Rococo on Buitenkant Streent in Central Cape Town. See facebook invite here.
Last chance fundraising for Europe/North America book tour:
We only have 17 hours left to raise the money we need for a our book tour. If we get at least $4,000usd, then we’ll be able to bring 2 authors on tour.

Please contribute here now so that our voices can be heard outside South Africa.

We cannot humanise our world through a vanguard media. The right to a voice cannot be held only by elite academics, authors and politicians. To fix the publishing industry, we must turn freedom of speech on its head. This is why the first ever pavement dweller book tour of Europe and North America is so necessary. On behalf of the Symphony Way community, we ask you to help us bring our new anthology, No Land! No House! No Vote! Voices from Symphony Way, to the world!

We plan to visit universities, bookstores, organisations and movements the following cities:
London / Oxford

New York / Boston
Philadelphia / Washington DC
Chicago / Milwaukee
San Francisco / Los Angeles
Ottawa / Toronto

If you believe in the importance of providing a platform for authentic voices from below, this is your chance to make sure these voices get heard. Please contribute to our campaign and you will receive free copies of the book, DVDs, signed copies by Raj Patel, and even a specially arranged visit to the city of your choice by the authors.

But please contribute here now before we run out of time!

Thanks for your support. Aluta continua!
