The current global political, legal and economic system - global capitalism - devastates communities, cultures, economies, ecosystems, and popular sovereignty, benefiting the extremely wealthy few and empowering their corporations at the expense of the vast many. Earth Rights and Global Democracy stand as principles of resistance and alternatives to policies that accelerate the transformation of people and planet into commodities controlled by major corporations.
Earth Rights are grounded in a recognition of the inherent rights of all living beings and of Mother Earth. Global Democracy challenges global corporate and state power to promote community sovereignty and participation, global economic federalism, and global human and ecological rights protections.
Join us as we build our global movement together, in sessions that take on:
The Alliance for Democracy, Alliance for Global Justice, Universalizing Resistance Project, Mass Global Action, encuentro 5, and Global Climate Convergence are the principal conveners of the Earth Rights & Global Democracy Conference. Contact Nancy Price and Suren Moodliar for more information.
