Kurdish Conference in Hamburg 3-5 April
We recommend everyone to travel to this conference in Hamburg, early April.
This the invitation from the organizers:
Invitation to our 2015 Conference
you may have heard of or participated in our successful 2012 conference in Hamburg. For three days hundreds of students, intellectuals and activists came together and discussed perspectives to overcome the current, crisis-struck system of capitalist modernity and the ideas of the Kurdish freedom movement and others on this topic.
We are happy to announce our second conference with the title “Challenging Capitalist Modernity II: Dissecting Capitalist Modernity–Building Democratic Confederalism”. This confer- ence will take place on the Easter weekend, 3-5 April 2015, in Hamburg. This second conference shall also focus on the critique of the capitalist modernity but most importantly it will in detail talk about how to build its alternative. Thus economy and women’s freedom shall be two main themes in the 2015 conference. It will not only be bigger (the Audimax takes up to 1200 people), but –we expect– even better.
The headlines of the 5 topic blocks are:
Dissecting Capitalist Modernity
Capitalist Modernity vs Democratic Modernity
Industrialism vs Ecological Industry and Communal Economy
Overcoming the Stumbling Blocks of Revolutionary Theory
Lessons to be Learned from Alternative Practises
