8:45-9:15 delegation meeting

9:30 – 11:00 – The material conditions of the oppressed today: focus on the youth – Marine/ Elena/Violaine (FR) - chair (CH). In the context of the crisis of the neoliberalism, we’d like to focus on the life conditions of working class youth both of students and precarious workers, on those layers of populations that heavily suffer from cuts to welfare state and from the normalization of precarity as a life condition. The analysis takes into account intersectionality (between gender, class, sexuality, race, age, geography factors) and has the goal to provide useful tools to investigate the class composition today.

11:00-12:15 Women’s space

12:15- 13:15 Forum on direct grassroots experiences of welcoming migrants (I, GR, F - Ens, CH) - chair (B - Chichi) Forum held by migrants that are part of experiences inside or close to our organizations, that could share their experiences of struggle and welcoming, experiences that saw a central role of the self-organization of migrants themselves.

8:45-9:15 Delegation meeting

9:30 – 11:30 From the revolutionary processes in the Arab region as uprisings to war in Syria: the barbarism of imperialism Peter Drucker - chair GB. Victories and defeats of the revolutionary processes in the Arab region make it necessary and urgent to re-analyse the geopolitical dynamics, not only in the Mediterranean area, but on a global scale. The educational should focus on the situation in Syria and touch several aspects: loss of the hegemonic role of the US in the Arab zone, growth of the economic power of China, Russian interventionism, positioning of European Union. Consequences of imperialism are analysed from an intersectional viewpoint.

Thursday 27th

7.50-8.45 breakfast

8:45-9:15 delegation meetings

9:30 – 11:00 Dissident sexuality in neoliberal era (Sergio from Portugal) - chair DK. Neoliberalism valorizes productive and reproductive force through processes of normalization, control and false freedom, managing to keep strong alliances with the reactionary and conservative forces in its interior. The struggle for homosexual marriage, ”gay friendly” and “women’s quotas” rhetorics are used in such a way to reshape the human and democratic appearance of the advanced capitalist states and are often used in the imperialist and neocolonialist offensive against different cultures. The educational thus tries to individuate the significance of resistance to neoliberalism starting from sexual identities, looking for alliances with non conformal subjectivities (identities) and sexualities, and reproposing sexuality, bodies, and self-determination as central elements in the anticapitalist struggle.

11:00-12:15 LGBTIQA space

12:15- 13:15 Forum (Palestine, Black Lives Matter, Ireland, Russia - chair (GR). This forum is on lgbt and queer experiences, which differ from one another. From the Palestinian queers resisting Israel and Islamic culture itself, to the experiences of Russian comrades, heavily hit by homophobic, violent and sexist policies by the government. From the situation of Ireland, which allows homosexual marriage in a heavily conservative system (abortion is forbidden), to the Black Lives Matter collectives, exemplary experiences that fight against white, bourgeois and hetero/homonormative narrations.

Friday 28th

7.50-8.45 breakfast

8:45-9:15 Delegation meeting

9:30 – 11:00 Territories in struggle between city and countryside Sem terra (BR)–Fuori Mercato (I) +Peter (DK) - chair (CH). Educational which starts from the analysis of some exemplary experiences of territorial resistance in different contexts around the world. In particular, we’d like to focus on the link that these experiences generated between the environmental and food sovereignty issues, on the self-determination of the use of land resources and (in some cases) in the self-managing of production, according to a democratic and participative model, alternative to the capitalistic scheme and able to create solidarity links between different contexts. Rethinking production starting from the defence of environment and commons and, at the same time, of labour, has led in some cases to the necessity of rethinking the relation producer-consumer and countryside-city. The educational starts with the interventions of concrete experiences/struggles, and will be concluded by an intervention (----) that will analyse more theoretically the ecosocialist perspective.

Saturday 29th

7.50-8.45 breakfast

8:45-9:15 Delegation meeting

9:30 – 11:00 Selforganization and Poder Popular (Gigi Malabarba + Ernesto Diaz) - chair (Latin America). Thinking about and organizing revolutionary resistance and fight means also posing some questions about the present situation: the disaggregation of the working class movement, the crisis of the neoliberal model, the new forms of normalization of sexual identities, the dramatic scenarios of imperialism and the destruction and plundering of the environmental resources, the concentration of wealth and the wealth monopoly held by the 1% of population. All these elements bring to the fore the issue of power relations. Not just who decides, but rather who should decide on our lives. Self-organization in the working class movement, in the women’s movement, and in liberation movements, has been a central issue and today is once again a means of politicization, creating the conditions to organize the revolutionary forces. We invite the two speakers to debate on self-organization, poder popular (popular power) and political organization.
