Solidarity Dynamics

Solidarity Dynamics (Don Sutherland) provides support and solidarity to workers, their unions, other community and grass roots organisations and movements, to help win the struggles they are engaged in.
In general, SD works to challenge and defeat the destructive exploitation of people and nature. We seek that exploited people become more confident as protagonists rather than subjects.
Support is provided through any one (or combination of) organizing, education, action research, and communication activities. The core idea is to unleash workers’ and community potential towards mindful militancy and power to confronts corporations, employer groups and their governments.
Support can be short lectures and workshops, short courses, longer courses as required, structured reading and discussion groups, one to one or small group mentoring, and on-line learning.
Within this framework, support can be tailored to meet the requirements of groups and organisations.
We work with you through discussion and mutual planning to develop the programme of support that meets your organisation’s needs.
