(en) US, NYC, The New SPACE - The New School for Pluralistic Anti-Capitalist Education*

Date Tue, 07 Feb 2006 12:36:05 +0200


The New SPACE) is a new anti-capitalist educational project dedicated to
developing and advancing ideas for liberatory social change.
Together with the new movements for global justice, we believe that
"another world is possible" -- a world free from the domination of
capital and free for the flowering of human powers and talents.
The New SPACE holds that free dialogue and the protection of
dissenting views are essential for the development of liberatory ideas
and for forging real unity among those struggling for liberation. We
reject the suppression of dissenting views and individuals in the
name of "unity," convinced that such suppression is antithetical to
the working out of real unity. "Freedom," as Rosa Luxemburg
reminds us, "is always and exclusively freedom for the one who
thinks differently." Accordingly, one distinguishing aspect of our
mission is to create an educational space -- not existent at present --
in which pluralistic dialogue and dissident perspectives are respected
and encouraged.

The New SPACE will be a place for exploring challenging questions
that today's movements confront, such as: How do we build
non-hierarchical movements that can sustain themselves? How can
such movements safeguard grass-roots democracy? How do
consciousness and ideas relate to movements for social
transformation?

Resolutely anti-authoritarian and non-sectarian, the New SPACE
brings together anarchists, humanist Marxists, and others. All those
who share our mission and goals are invited to join us as students,
teachers, and partners in the development of this project. In
particular, we will encourage and facilitate the participation of
women, people of color, GLBT people and others who face
exclusion and discrimination. We also envision a new space that
young people, without ties to the old Left, will find welcoming. We
seek, through our classes and other activities, to create an
environment in which youth, working people from diverse
backgrounds, intellectuals, and activists can dialogue and collaborate
in order to make sense of, and transform, our world.
