Everywhere we look in the world there are revolutions and struggles that are challenging dictatorship, economic inequality, and oppression.

From Cairo to Madison, these struggles show us that "another world is possible." But they also raise questions about what ideas, strategies, and tactics are necessary to carry the struggle forward.
Socialism 2011 will provide an opportunity for new and veteran activists to discuss what these events mean for our world, and for our own movements today.

Last year, more than 1,500 people turned out to Socialism 2010 in Oakland and Chicago.

Don’t miss the chance to meet with hundreds of others like you who want to build an alternative to a system of greed, racism, war and oppression.

What they say about past Socialism Conferences...

The young people at the conference took me back in time to when you were ready to stand for what was right. It lets you know that what you may have planted years ago will come to reality today. I feel great to have become a part of it.
Dr. John Carlos, 1968 Olympic bronze medalist who raised the Black Power salute.

Socialism conferences are exciting gathering places for students and young activists, for revolutionary scholars and fighters for social justice, to share ideas and experiences that can help us understand and change the world. I've been to a couple—it's not enough. I'm coming again.
Paul LeBlanc, socialist and author

(No Comments) But information regarding Our SAARC Cenference

11, 12 & 13 November, 2011
Peoples SAARC Conference
of
Nature-Human Centric Peoples Movement
Invitation
The need of Peoples SAARC Conference of Nature-Human Centric Peoples Movement can be understood by looking at the existing fundamental reality of the official SAARC. And this fundamental reality is that South Asia today has become the most dangerous area of the World where the World faces the threat of the extinction of all forms of life in case of Indo-Pak nuclear war which can occur at any moment because Indo-Pak border skirmishes have been a regular feature of Indo-Pak border.
At the present juncture, the South Asian Nations, like all other trading blocks in the World, have been caught in a 2-dimensional crisis i.e., environmental degradation in general and each of its components in particular, on the one hand, and the crisis of dehumanization of the present human society (called a "free and open democracy" with its over 2 centuries old theory and practice) in general and each of its social aspects [i.e., sociological (or ideological or theoritical) vision or standpoint; peoples belief and motivation; human gender relations and proportion of sexes; political performance covering its international, national and local aspects; economic progress dealing with its international, natioanl and local features and cultural ethics relating to all its components, i.e., education, science and technology, language, art (music, dance, drama, architecture, sculpture, painting, crafts, etc.) behaviour, manner of speech, dress etc.] on the other.
Environmental degradation expressed by global warming or climate change is the biggest challenge that the human community is now facing on this Earth. The crises is so serious that either the human community overcomes it immediately, or it will devour the human community and finish it for ever. The time at our disposal is very, very, very small. According to the whole World scientific community organized within the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (UNIPCC). The size or proportion of GHGs was 280 PPM (Part per million) in 1750 and it is 379 PPM in 2007. It is far greater than the natural increase from 180 PPM to 300 PPM over the last 650,000 years. Now the global temperature is 0.76 centigrade high. The World has less than a decade to change course. According to them, if the human community did not change its course by 2020, the crises of climate change will become irreversible and thus after very short time the human community along with the entire bio-life on this Earth will go out of existence.
Climate change is not a market problem. It is an existential problem. It can not be solved by market means. Corporate World makes it a market problem. Climate change problem demands that polluters immediately stop the production of GHGs.
Nature-Human Centric Peoples Movement believes that the ongoing fatal environmental and social crisis is an outcome of the corporate theory of capital whose 2 facets, i.e. Western capitalism and Marxian communism, are one in holding capital as the supreme thing in society, which constantly misuses and over-uses environmental and human resources to achieve the maximum profit. It (i.e., Nature-Human Centric Peoples Movement) firmly holds that the way out of the present life and death crisis lies in motivating and mobilizing the people for a peaceful transformation of the present corporate capitalist system (now operating in all the nation states) into a Nature-Human Centric System which consciously regards that the most precious thing in society comprises environmental and human resources and not the money capital. Hence, according to it, the development, progress and prosperity in society should be judged by the promotion of nature-human resources. Capital money or wealth, according to it, is merely a medium of exchange and nothing more. By falsifying the capital (i.e., money or wealth) as the personification of development, progress and prosperity, the corporate capitalist theoreticians have devised a system which ruthlessly destroys the environmental resources and violently and mercilessly exploits the human resources.
Obviously, the transformation of the present corporate capitalist order into a Nature-Human Centric Order is an urgent need of our times. The sooner it is done the better.
The different aspect of this agenda will be discussed in coming peoples SAARC Conference. A separate document will be provided to delegates and participants.
