Inter-Alliance Dialogue Assembly - Grassroots Responses to the Economic Crisis and Critical Issues of our Time
Enough is Enough / Basta Ya! – A Peoples’ Movement Assembly Forging Alternatives to the Economic and Ecological Crises of Our Times. We are living in uncertain and momentous times. The current economic crisis, a global ecological crisis brought on by global capitalism, and a shifting landscape of political power on global scale, have created a historical moment marked by volatility and change. The impacts of these interpenetrating crises are widespread and inclusive. All of us, including Mother Earth are affected. Amidst this uncertainty, this is also a moment of opportunity. Around the world and at home, we are witnessing the convergence of social movements that are not only battling against the devastating impacts of global capitalism and climate change, but also posing sweeping agendas for change that include how we organize the economy, how we interact with one another as human beings and how we create a sustainable future for the planet. The Inter-Alliance Dialogue invites you to participate in movement assembly to hear the testimonies of those impacted by the current crises, gain inspiration from the joint struggles that we and movement allies are doing to address current realities, and build a common platform for action this year to strengthen a movement for long-term change for a democratic and sustainable economy in the US and around the world.
