SchNEWS, the weekly direct action newsletter, has been providing information for action to anti-capitalists since 1994. We’ve put this conference together as an opportunity to discuss, plot and organise resistance to the suicidal onward march of capitalism. From the occupation of Iraq to criminalising dissent, from the growth of sweatshop economies to creeping privatisation of basic services, capitalism is attacking more and more people. And more and more people are resisting.
This conference is a chance to hear about that resistance first hand and find out how you can get involved in it.
2pm Our lives, their profits – how we fight exploitation
* Anne Jones, mother of Simon Jones and campaigner for workplace safety
* Edgar Paez, international secretary of Columbian trade union SINALTRAINAL
3pm Climate change - capitalism's legacy to the world
* Rising Tide, grassroots network taking action on the root causes of climate change
4pm The warmongers and how to oppose them
* Mark Curtis, director of the World Development Movement and author of Web of Deceit
* Ewa Jasiewicz, human rights activist and journalist imprisoned by Israeli government
* Jo Wilding, activist, writer and witness to the seige of Falluja
5-7pm How direct action can save the world
* A call for direct action against the G8 visit to Scotland in 2005
* Anne, Edgar, Mark, Ewa, Jo and everyone else!
