Activités Séminaires

 “We must do this again -very soon”, said one of the twenty-two radical socialist-feminists from eleven countries in Europe, Latin America and Asia, who participated in the IIRE International Women's Seminar, 11-15 July. “It was so positive to have the time to explore these issues together and look at them in an international context."

« Il nous faut le faire de nouveau dans un futur proche », disait une des vingt-deux féministes-socialistes venues de onze pays d'Europe, d'Amérique-Latine et d'Asie pour le Séminaire International Femmes qui s'est tenu à l'IIRE du 11 au 15 juillet.

« On avait le temps de creuser ensemble les sujets et de les comprendre d'un point de vue international. »


On the weekend 19-21 June, IIRE hosted the  Europe-wide Meeting on Solidarity with the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. Over 120 people, representing diplomatic missions, Bolivarian Circles and other solidarity organisations from a wide array of traditions, attended the three-day event which was co-sponsored by the Bolivarian Circle of The Netherlands and the Venezuelan Embassy at The Hague.
