Can the Militarist See Outside the Box?

01-09-2004 12:51

Liberation theology and the theology of hope can give us strength against fundamentalism, intolerance and jingoism generated by hyper-materialism. As prejudice is a stepping stone to understanding, false consciousness, false security and false religion can be replaced by exchanging roles and egalitarian passion.

Major UK NGO's Criticise ESF Organising Process + SWP / SA

01-09-2004 09:03

A coalition of 10 British NGOs including the major ones like Oxfam, Jubilee and Greenpeace have written a letter complaining about the UK European Social Forum organising process and saying it has been characterised by a lack of transparency and openness.

While the NGOs don't mention them by name, they're criticising the SWP (Socialist Workers Party) and SA (Socialist Action) for dominating a meeting to decide speakers names through weight of numbers. This is a significant moment. Reports from the meeting also revealed what appeared to be willful miscounting of votes and other undemocractic behaviour. The letter has been published ahead of the european esf assembly meeting in brussels this coming weekend.
