Dear friends, We're just days away from Life After Capitalism 2004- an exciting
conference and activist gathering taking place in NYC one week before the RNC.
Among many other topics, 1 panel on each day of the conference will
address themes and questions pertinent to the labor movement and class
struggle in the U.S. (and beyond) of interest to working people, union
memebrs and staff, and all labor activists.


Topics covered will include:

*Overview of postwar U.S. labor history
*Union democracy and reform movements
*community unionism, minority unionism, workers centers
*Reimagining the labor movement- the role of radical vision
*Organizing immigrants and the undocumented; organizing in the low-wage
service sector
*Grassroots international solidarity
*Forging ties between labor and the global anticapitalist social movements
and more...


Including representatives from:

*Civil Service Employees Association
*Coalition of Immokale Workers
*Domestic Workers United
*Justice for Janitors
*Montpelier Downtown Workers Union
*NYC-based workers center
*'The Take' (Documentary on Argentinian factory occupations)
(*for identification purposes only)
and more...


The discussions around labor are part of the larger conference:

*Life After Capitalism 2004 NYC August 20-22*

The protests around the Republican National Convention taking place in New
York City later this summer are shaping up to be perhaps the largest this
country has ever seen...

While these protests will give us the chance to collectively raise our
voices in opposition to the direction that this government is taking us -
many of us realize that the problems that we face run much deeper then
simply the Bush administration, the Democrats, or this upcoming current
election cycle. What we face are institutional problems, problems which
will only be challenged and ultimately overcome by imaginative and broad
based social movements- not ballot boxes. Life After Capitalism 2004 aims
at contributing to this process by providing a space for activists- in the
run up to the intense mobilization period- to reflect on the importance
of long term vision, strategy, and face to face relationship building.

This is an invitation, asking activists from around the country to come
into New York City a week prior to the major demonstrations and
participate in what should be an exciting and energizing weekend – a
weekend that seeks to bring together and give voice to the (non-sectarian)
anti-capitalist left, anarchist, and kindred social movements in the
United States...

Our site <http://www.lifeaftercapitalism.org> briefly outlines the basic
areas of focus within the conference and provides a (partial)list of speakers
and schedule. In addition the site allows you to register online,
something we encourage
folks to do as soon as possible due to space restrictions of approx. 800
participants. We have worked very hard to keep all costs to a minimum
($15-25 sliding scale) - all registration fees go directly into making
this weekend happen as our only funding comes through the opening Friday
evening event and conference fees. We also have a number of free
registration slots which will be extended specifically to activist
communities who have been traditionally marginalized from these kinds of
gatherings and debates. For information regarding a waiving of the
conference fees and any other questions, please contact:
info@lifeaftercapitalism.org or call (212) 591-0083.


We hope to see you all in New York for what should be an amazing weekend!
