Hello again! Here is our second newsletter, a bit shorter than last time. Please let us know if you would like to be removed from the mailing list. You are also welcome to let us know if you feel some useful or interesting information is missing or if you want to highlight something (a feminist event f.ex) in our next newsletter.
Next workshops!
Exciting times ahead, we are for the first time hosting a weekend workshop in feminist self-defense. The workshop is a total of 14 hours (including breaks) and it will cover all of the major factors of feminist self-defense. Participants get an opportunity til really dig into FSD and get to know different tools to combat different kinds of gender-based violence.
The dates are as follows:
11.-12. February, from 10:00 to 17:00, saturday and sunday. 14 free spots.
12.-13. March, from 10:00 to 17:00, saturday and sunday. 14 free spots.

The price of the workshop is according to a sliding scale, which means you pay one of these amounts depending on your financial capacity: 5000 kr – 7500 kr – 10.000 kr – 15.000 kr (If these prices don’t work for you just contact us and we will figure something out).

To sign up send an e-mail to slagtog@slagtog.org with your name, pronoun and the date of the workshop you want to sign up for.
What has been happening?
In december five trainers from Slagtog finished the second part of the training of trainers. The training of trainers is organised and taught by Irene Zeilinger, who has over 25 years of experience in teaching FSD. She has also led the NGO Garance based in Belgum, which in many ways is Slagtog’s rolemodel. Besides the trainers from Slagtog, 5 trainers from Romania participated in the training of trainers. The training took place over two week period. The preparation for the third and last part of the training of trainers is being organised, and will take place in Belgium at the end of May 2022. During the period of October – Desember 2021, Slagtog led 5 introduction workshop in feminist self-defence and worked with various groups, including W.O.M.E.N, Q-félagið and Póst-húsið.
Other feminist events. Due to the current gathering restrictions not much seems to be happening. We none the less want to highlight the support groups of Samtökin ’78 for different minorities within the LGBTQIA+ community.
