by RADIOCITTA' PESCARA Sunday, Jan. 14, 2001 at 3:46 AM 0039 85 42 19 770 pescara italy

This is an invitation to all the people who took part physically and/or spiritually in the mobilizations and debates started in recent months in Seattle, Praga, Nizza, Milan, Ancona, Genoa, Naples and Bologna, as well as to all the people who look with growing interest towards the rise of a new movement against neoliberism.

"Cantieri": a workshop on "NEW ECONOMY / NEW RIGHTS" debating the proposal of "social wage" and/or the right of "citizenship income". Pescara, ITALY, February 10-11, 2001.

This is an invitation to all the people who took part physically and/or spiritually in the mobilizations and debates started in recent months in Seattle, Praga, Nizza,

Milan, Ancona, Genoa, Naples and Bologna, as well as to all the people who look with growing interest towards the rise of a new movement against neoliberism.

We do not have defined assumptions, only the urge to fully analyze and comprehend present and future possibilities of the current capitalistic development. The "Cantieri", (as we

defined it last summer when it was organized for the first time by CARTA in Naples) is going to be an open workshop. The "Cantieri" has the main objective of promoting

action as well as cooperation between the different forces antagonizing the new phase of the capitalistic

development. Indeed, last June in Naples, we sought to further the analysis on critical themes

such as the "working/non working" issue, as well as on the right to a "citizenship income", as a trigger to build cohesion amongst the different components of labor. As we have said, we do not have a predefined thesis. On the contrary we are set to promote a non hierarchical and non

dogmatic debate, as well as spontaneous networking between the different components of the antagonistic movement, in order to sort out more effective strategies that will

make a powerful impact on our times.

Our starting hypothesis is the call for a "social wage".

Again, this is a proposal not a dogma. An additional/alternative starting point is the need for a

"citizenship income". No matter where we start, the rapid crushing of what has been called by some the "diamond of labor" imposes an urgent modernization of our analysis. By

using an "investigative" approach we aim to sort out different proposals on the issues of income

redistribution, as well as fully identify the multiform expression of labor today. Investigation includes consideration on confrontational approaches, the forms that the struggle must assume, and on the planning of practical areas of "autonomous sociality". We will not focus exclusively, on the analysis of the "traditional workplace". On the contrary we will, more broadly, focus on

the system as a whole, the "social factory" in which we live as a result of the impetuous development of a global network; a "social factory" fed by migratory fluxes, and

that is constantly remodeling the functions and the organization of the state, as well as redefining the

boundaries of our collective imagination and ideology.

However, we do not want to talk only about movements, we want the movements to speak. Our investigation will consist of personal communications, in dept theoretical analyses and debates by the experts and investigators that so far

have carefully studied these processes. However, this process will be mixed with the direct voices from

movements in France and Italy, that in recent years have produced great analysis as well as praxis on issues such as "working/non working" and the right to "citizenship

income". Our ambition is to put together a common platform of demands and economic policies that, by assembling multiple forces, will constitute a critical mass strong enough to gain credibility and authority. We think that a "minimal" (and definitely legitimate) goal of income

redistribution is not in contradiction with additional goals such as the reduction of working hours, the creation

of autonomous economical practices and the further development of a "services economy".

We call this goal "minimal" as we recognize that no revolution is needed to pursue it.

However, we know as well, that this "minimal" goal strongly antagonizes the intellectual dictatorship of contemporary "unidimensional thinking" that imposes flexibility, temporary employment and "behind close doors" negotiations. This goal can be pursued HERE and NOW and at every level. We can pursue it locally, at municipal level,

focusing the struggle on the rights to transportation, food, education, and local management of federal funds as well as by actively supporting the struggles of temporary and

unemployed workers. At the national level we can act by pushing the legislation in favor of strong tax

reform and social security. Finally at the European level we can pursue it by antagonizing the absurd parameters set by the "Stability Pact" or, as we did in Nizza, challenging the ambiguous "right to work" proposed by the "Charter of Rights". Finally, we invite all of you to participate

in this two day "CANTIERI", in Pescara, as a social occasion to promote, reinforce and stimulate mutual curiosities as well as fruitful acquaintances.
