From Anti-Colonialism to Anti-Neoliberalism: The Working Class Struggle for Social and National Emancipation
in Asia and the Pacific

23 to 25 October 2013,
University of the Philippines Diliman

The 18th century up to the middle of the 20th century were centuries of uprisings by the oppressed peoples of Asia, Africa and Latin America.  At the forefront of these uprisings, directed mostly against Western colonial dominance and control, were the nascent working classes – from the gold mines in the hinterlands to the export-oriented plantations in the countryside, from the forced labor camps to the emerging urban ports in various colonies.

Have we forgotten all of this?  These uprisings produced countless martyrs, heroes, heroines and other icons in the pantheon of liberty and freedom in the developing world -- from Simon Bolivar and Jose Marti in Latin America to Sun Yat Sen and Mahatma Gandhi in Asia.

New Book:
The Pursuit of Alternatives
Stories of peoples' struggles across the globe are testaments to their determination to resist exploitation and injustice, and to imagine and construct their own narratives of economic and political difference. These stories of emancipatory moments demonstrate that something radically different in terms of dominant socio-economic relations and mental conceptions of the world may arise out of and beyond capitalism. The Pursuit of Alternatives: Stories of Peoples' Economic and Political Struggles Around the World presents a fresh and new perspective on how the 'process of becoming' alternatives might take place based on peoples' lived experiences... read more
