(en) Uruguay, Montevideo, The 4th Latin American Encounter of Popular Auonomous Organizations (ELAOPA) 24-26 February 2006

Date Wed, 22 Feb 2006 13:13:55 +0200

The Encountero will be at Lagomar: SAG (Sindicato de Artes Gráficas)
holiday camp Km 21.500 de la Ruta Giannasttassio, Uruguay.
Dear comrades, -- You are invited to the 4th Latin American Encounter of Popular
Auonomous Organizations which will take place on 24, 25 and 26 February 2006.
The 1st Encounter took place in Porto Alegre (Brazil) in January
2003, followed by the 2nd in February 2004 in Cochabamba (Bolivia).
The 3rd Encounter was in February 2005 in La Plata (Argentina).
The Encounter seeks to be a space to share and spread the
experiences of struggle of autonomous social organizations and
movements that are not tied to political parties or to institutionalist
NGOs. We are class-struggle oriented organizations using libertarian
principles of grassroots work, direct democracy and grassroots
solidarity. We aim to build unity between all those who struggle and
consolidate resistance through the values of our peoples and our
cultural traditions, while being at the same time an opportunity to
coordinate our activities and strengthen ties for the building of
popular power.

Thetheme of the Encounter will once again be "Building Popular
Power". The first day of workshops will see general debates on
building popular power, while the second day will concentrate
mainly on analysing how best to build popular power in each of the
areas of struggle.
