(en) i2002 - International Solidarity Conference (de)

      A - I N F O S  N E W S  S E R V I C E

In June 1999 workers from anarcho-syndicalist, revolutionary-syndicalist and
industrial unionist organizations from many countries came together in San
Francisco (USA) at the International Solidarity Conference I99. For four
days they shared their experience and discussed many issues including the
struggle against the World Bank, ways of linking workersı struggles with
environmental activism, and the fight against poverty. A topic of particular
importance was how to ensure ongoing international communication between the
workers attending the conference.
Now, two years later, we want to build on that good start and invite you to
a follow-up gathering, i2002, to be held from 29th August to 1st September
2002 in Essen (Germany). We want to carry on and intensify the discussions
begun in San Francisco. Capitalist globalization, a major topic at I99, has
been thrust into the consciousness of many workers in the last two. Partly
this is due to the impressive demonstrations in Seattle, Quebec, Prague,
Gothenburg and Genoa, but mainly to the worsening of workersı own situation.
Resistance against capitalist exploitation is mounting all around the world.
At the i2002 conference we want to discuss how to improve the coordination
of union struggles world-wide and how our own rich experience of
self-organized struggle against capitalist exploitation and state control
can be made available to other workers around the world. There will again be
plenty of opportunity for sharing concrete experience.
Come to Essen and bring your experience with you! Together we can talk and
take the next step in the struggle for a free world ­ a world without
capitalist exploitation and state oppression!
i2002 Organization Group

The only precondition for participants at the i2002 conference is that they
agree with the following four principles:
  1. The class of those who are forced to sell their labour power (the
working class) and the class
      of exploiters have nothing in common.
  2. The working class must organize independently in order to fight the
class of exploiters.
  3. In this struggle the working classıs most important weapon is direct

  4. Only the workers themselves can do away with the global system of
capitalist exploitation.
