DEFEATING THE OFFENSIVE OF GLOBAL CAPITALISM - FIGHTING TO WIN

by Chicago Direct Action Network Friday, Aug. 24, 2001 at 12:24 AM
DirectAction@Onebox.com Tel: 773 377 5001 x3175 1658 N. Milwaukee Avenue Box #361, Chicago, IL 6064

You are invited to join activists from the workplaces, the neighborhoods, and the anticapitalist movement in a weekend of discussions.

DEFEATING THE OFFENSIVE OF GLOBAL CAPITALISM - FIGHTING TO WIN

Hosted by the Chicago Direct Action Network

Endorsed by Carpenters Local 713 and AFSME 3506



You are invited to join activists from the workplaces, the neighborhoods, and the anticapitalist movement in a weekend of discussions.

Time/Location: Friday, Saturday, Sunday 7th, 8th, 9th, September at the United Electrical Workers Hall, 37 S. Ashland, Chicago

Speakers include representatives from the Chicago's Robert Taylor Homes, Save Maxwell Street Campaign, Camp Cesar Chavez High School Campaign, Carpenters Wildcat Strike of 1999, Ontario Coalition Against Poverty, Anti Racist Action, Workers Solidarity Club of Youngstown Ohio, CLAC (Canadian AntiCapitalist Convergence), and the Teamsters Jeffboat Wildcat Strike

Life is getting harder for working class people as wages decline and the work rate increases. Billions of people worldwide are starving and the planet is being polluted while the offensive of the major corporations to increase their profits and control threatens all. Strikes, mass movements, demonstrations, uprisings and the movement that emerged in Seattle are challenging the corporate agenda. Confronting and halting this offensive is the central task facing activists and working people today.

Chicago Direct Action Network is hosting this weekend to discuss how to fight and how to win. We will draw lessons from the failed policies of the trade union leaders, the mainstream protest and liberal organizations, and the various oppositions that have developed over the past decades, as well as look at the strengths and weaknesses of the anti-globalization movement that has developed since Seattle. We also will discuss how the fight against racism, sexism and other oppressions relates to the fight against capitalism.



The old "politics of protest" have failed. We aim to build unity between the new anti-global capitalist movement and the activists in the workplaces and neighborhoods and unions, between the struggles in the most exploited countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America and the struggles in the more economically powerful countries. If you wish to be involved in struggles that win, to develop alternative policies to those of the leaders of the unions and the mainstream liberal protest movements, then come along to our weekend of discussions.

Housing for people will be provided by members of the Chicago Direct Action Network and local activists free of charge
