- Hoofdcategorie: IIRE Activities
After a full year of operations at the Timorplein in Amsterdam, the IIRE stands strong as a truly international, radical left think tank and study centre for social activists. Thanks to commercial activity conducted at our building, the influx of volunteers and generous donations, the IIRE has proven itself to becoming a sustainable project serving the social movements geared towards transforming our world.
Our Global Justice School held in April, and the Youth School in August were as usual, well-attended by experienced activists from around the world. Likewise, the hosting of various important activities that spoke to contemporary debates brought life into the newly remodelled building.
For the IIRE, 2008 was also characterised by unprecedented outreach locally and internationally.
This year, the IIRE became a model for similar projects of activist training. In November, our sister organisation in The Philippines, IIRE Manila, opened the doors of its newly purchased building. Spaces for the library and lodging facilities have been completed.
