Eplus Club schedule
December 28 to January 3
Theme: - The voice of dissent is an integral part of the progress and development of any society and nation. Policies lead to protests; protests sometimes lead to re-thinking and that in turn improves upon the original decision. While protesting is important for our interests and well-being, we need to ensure that it is not misused. Let's discuss.
The Revolutionary: - Have you ever taken part in a protest/agitation? What was the issue and what did you do to show your dissent? If you haven't been a part of any protest, you can choose to talk about agitations you have seen in your school/college or locality.
Something Else: - Nowadays people are resorting to unique ways of expressing their opinions as conventional methods often do not attract the public eye. Some people form a group and shave their heads while others take out candlelight processions. Do some reading and find out about a few agitations and movements that are out of the ordinary and talk about them.
Wits at Work: - “Women: Stop! Drop! Men: Enroll!” read a poster in The University of Alberta where students recently protested against the University president who wanted more men to join the University. Poster campaigning and graffiti on walls have been really popular for long. Posters sometimes are fun to read owing to witty and creative slogans. Take a look around and tell us about some interesting posters and graffiti you have recently come across.
Cyberevolution: - With advancement of technology and the popularity of social networking, more and more people are choosing to protest through blogs, social networking sites, online signature campaigns etc. Take a look and tell us about some blogs, sites etc that are talking about current issues and trying to form public opinion and let us have your opinion on online movements?
Well Documented? : - Plenty of movies have been made all over the world on the subject of revolution and protest. Talk to us about a movie on social revolution that you enjoyed. What was the story? Do you agree with the way the characters protested?
Debate: - Peaceful protests are generally disregarded.
