Occupy Wall Street and Anti-Capitalism

January 26, 2012 at 11:47 pm (Uncategorized)

Meeting announcement. This Sunday in New York. 

Do you believe another world is possible?  That humankind would be better off with a system other than capitalism (or the other class societies that came before it)?  Are you inspired by OWS and the explosion of the occupy movement, but also find the need for a network of similar minded activists to work or share ideas with?

 Revolutionary and non-sectarian anarchists, socialists, and communists are coming together to report on their activity in OWS,  share insights and discuss next steps, support each other, and hopefully work
 together productively in the future.

Our first meeting, initiated by a small group of anti-capitalist activists, took place on January 8th.  About forty-five people attended and, after a productive discussion, agreed to continue meeting.

We are not looking to ‘take over’ OWS, or build a separate alternative to it, but to form a network for anti-capitalist activists already active in the movement.  No decisions have been made about what we might do!
