Day Do you justice
How to think queer alternatives collectively to the mainstream justice system? Can queer communities really conceive of justice that is not LGBTI + phobic, sexist, racist and classist?
The day "Do you justice" on the theme of intra-community justice will aim to explore and reflect on queer practices in the field of justice. Between transformative justice and injustice, how can we question the automatisms, the grids of reading and the methods in place in our communities? In parallel with the mainstream justice system, our queer spaces open up an opportunity to reflect on concrete alternatives to "doing justice". This time of encounter, sharing and discussion is conceived with a view to benevolent collective construction.
This day breaks down in three stages:
12h-15h30: Practical workshop for conflict situations in queer circles: tools and forging a critical posture - COMPLETE
14h-16h: The queer justice in question (s): open discussion;
16h-17h: Cyber-harassment and call-out in a militant environment: conference and discussion.

🐙 queer justice in question (s): open discussion
Queer Week and Just a Collective offers you an interactive experience and horizontal and benevolent exchange on questions revolving around our queer justice. The workshop will be based on a survey proposed by the Just One Collective on your own report to the processes of justice intra-community and will be disseminated on the internet upstream and on paper the same day. It is up to you to answer according to your interest and at your pleasure, to a question, to several or all. This survey will be widely distributed and anonymous responses will be collected by the collective and then discussed during the event.

Presentation of the feminist collective against cyberbullying on cyberstalking and call-outs in feminist militant circles.

🐙 Practical workshop for situations of conflict in queer circles: tools and forging a critical posture
By the Community Justice Think Tank in context queer
On (an "on" queer / transedebigouine / non-cis-hetero and anti-authoritarian) has all around us conflicts, aggression, denunciations of violence, interindividual or collective; and various responses to it, from pacification to exclusion, with a "mediation" or "transformative justice process" sometimes named, and most of the time unsatisfactory.
State justice, we do not want it; the feminist tools (institutional or anti-authoritarian) created for the heteraters are not entirely adapted; we find too few resources and people equipped to have appropriate answers, which correspond to us.
So how to do ?
For two years, we have been a group of four-five people (queer / tpbg / feminists) who are looking for ways to find an approach that is not punitive, taking into account the systems of structural domination and the specific power relations. to our queer / tpg community, so that in the event of conflicts and / or aggression, we can unlock the situations and move towards a better sort, and for a transformation of our communities in the long term.
In this workshop, we propose to present (for the first time!) Where we are in our research, with many more questions than answers, doubts, some convictions, and no protocol.
The workshop will be very focused on practical cases. Of course, we will ask some basics, we will want to convey some beliefs we have acquired and some resources. But we will work mostly in small groups in a very concrete way, on bits of fictitious situations that we will propose to you.
PS: We start at a time where we could have lunch ... but we have 3:30, so we take a good break that will be the opportunity to eat a piece together and informal exchanges. bring some food to share!
🐙 Discussion "The queer justice in question (s)"
What is a queer mode of justice? What are the results and limits? For which application? How to think individually and collectively of operative tools? Tools that do not exclude, that do not do more harm than good, that are up to our utopias.
Before the Queer Week and over several weeks, Just a Collective (collective queer / tpg feminist) met to talk:
Commonly used queer justice tools
Recurring mechanisms at work between us when we try to do justice
From our analyzes of situations of conflict or violence
Statutes of victims and aggressor.se.s
The misuse of some of these tools and excesses of our attempts to do better than mainstream justice
But also successes when we manage to actually do better.
Queer Week and Just a Collective offers an interactive experience and horizontal and benevolent exchange on these issues. The workshop will be based on a survey proposed by Just a Collective on your own report to the intra-community justice processes and will be webcast upstream and on paper the same day. It is up to you to answer according to your interest and at your pleasure, to a question, to several or all. This survey will be widely distributed and anonymous responses will be collected by the collective and then presented at the event.
This survey will address burning but necessary questions such as:
Should it sometimes be better to do nothing as a community?
Do you think that sharing of space is operational?
What makes the difference between aggression and an unpleasant event?
This event will be organized in several stages:
- Reading time of the questions posted and exposed on the walls of the Bellevilloise;
- Collection of anonymous answers in ballot boxes;
- Discussion time: common reading of the answers collected and discussion around these answers.
In the form of group exchange, this discussion will therefore revolve around the generic notions of justice, reparation, violence, victim and aggression. This discussion aims to encourage reflection, questioning, reaction - as individuals and as a community - to answer these questions:
What do we want to create in the face of conflict, in the face of aggression within our communities? How to improve our practices of autonomous and transformative justice?
🐙 Conference discussion Cyber-harassment and call-out
By the association Feminists Against Cyberbullying
Intra-community violence and interpersonal settlements: Community justice within militant circles can lead to numerous abuses and violence, including waves of cyberstalking during call-outs and other public denunciations. But nothing justifies online violence and cyberbullying. How, then, can we question and improve current mechanisms and tools used by activists to better resolve disputes, denounce violence and protect vulnerable people without creating new violence? Ketsia Mutombo and Laure Salmona, co-founders of the Feminists Against Cyberbullying Association, will try to answer these questions and open avenues for reflection in order to initiate a co-construction of tools more suited to conflict resolution. .
Presentation of the association
Created on January 3, 2016, Feminists Against Cyber Harassment is an intersectional feminist collective formed as a non-profit association and mobilized against violence against women, girls and LGBTQIA + people via digital tools. At the origin of the #TwitterAgainstWomen campaign, the association's mission is not to leave the digital space - this space where it is possible to learn, to exchange, to inform, to and so much more - to become an inhospitable and dangerous space for women, girls and people marginalized by society, at the risk of seeing them desert. To this end, it aims to raise awareness and social networks cyberbullying and cyberviolence, to accompany victims and inform them about possible remedies.
