FORO SOCIAL MUNDIAL MEXICO 2018- 2020 “ASAMBLEAS DE LOS PUEBLOS”

August February, 2January8
(Próxima Asamblea Viernes 3 de agosto a las 17 hrs. en CENCOS) 1. El 13 de julio de 2018 se realizó una reunión del FSM en CENCOS. Asistieron aproximadamente 30 personas. 2. Se dio lectura y se comentó el documento “Rompiendo el aislamiento haremos historia”, que preparó Leo Gabriel, quien expuso un resumen y abrió el debate. 3. Además de informar de los efectivos avances del 8º Foro Social Mundial de las Migraciones (México, nov. 3-5, 2018) José Jacques Medina destacó que en la reunión del FSM en Salvador Bahía, Brasil, en marzo pasado, se hizo la petición de realizar una reunión del Consejo Internacional (CI-FSM) en México, y se expresó la propuesta de construir desde abajo la estructura y la preparación del siguiente foro general, que se propuso realizar en nuestro país en el 2020. 4. Se discutió que, después de las elecciones en que arrasó AMLO, esa coyuntura interna podría generar una dinámica política que llegara a expandirse a Latinoamérica y a otras regiones del mundo, y que para ello debe replantearse el presente y el futuro del FSM. 5. Se convino en que siendo el FSM un “movimiento de movimientos”, que busca un cambio que supere la crisis terminal del capitalismo, después de 17 años de ser un espacio de encuentro y de reflexión ya se tienen que revisar sus principios, sus objetivos y sus estrategias para convertirse en un espacio diverso y plural en el que no caben las derechas y, por tanto, las izquierdas de todo el mundo deben generar no sólo ideas sino acciones para una transformación social, económica y política que constituyan un verdadero cambio de época. 6. Por ello se recordó que se han venido realizando “Asambleas de Resistencias” en África, Asia del Sur, Sureste Asiático y Europa del Este, y que para América Latina se llevará a cabo otra en noviembre de este año en Venezuela, a fin de elaborar planes de acción convergentes. 7. Asimismo, se coincidió en promover una de esas reuniones, auspiciadas por el MST y Vía Campesina, para México, Centroamérica y el Caribe, a la vez que se propondría el nombre de “Asamblea de Pueblos” para esa y para las subsiguientes reuniones globales o regionales del FSM. 8. Se acordó elaborar una “Hoja de Ruta” para definir y precisar propuestas y actividades relacionadas con el FSM en México, que incluya Ejes Temáticos, Convocatorias y Participación de organizaciones y movimientos sociales y civiles que ya actuaron en el 2008-2010 o que quieran hacerlo en el 2018-2020. 9. Como Ejes Temáticos para un diálogo entre mirantes y organizaciones de la sociedad civil en el FSM de Migraciones se propusieron los siguientes tópicos que reflejan por un lado las causas de la migración y los puntos de partida para una transformación de las sociedades: - movimientos de paz versus Guerras y Militarización - Derechos Humanos (especialmente ONU-Compact) versus Represiones y Persecuciones - Diálogo Ecosistémico y Descrecimiento versus destrucción ambiental - Empoderamiento de las mujeres versus culturas de feminicidios - Economías solidarias versus la generalización de la pobreza 10. Cómo adherirse a uno u otros de esos Ejes, elaborar fichas técnicas y avanzar en su desarrollo, será discutido en la próxima reunión en CENCOS el viernes 3 de Agosto a las 17.00 hs. 11. Se hizo un llamado a los participantes de buscar hasta esta fecha a más organizaciones y personas que quieran participar en este proceso, dando énfasis a la mayor diversidad de las luchas posible y destacando la necesidad de ampliar el espectro hacia otro Estados de la República.

- Soon more information about the conference at the EU Parliament (Brussels, 18-19 September).

Three Degrowth International Conferences in 2018: Sweden, Mexico and European Parliament

The Support Group of the International Degrowth Conferences is happy to announce three degrowth events for 2018. After the conferences in Paris (2008), Barcelona (2010), Venice and Montreal (2012), Leipzig (2014) and Budapest (2016), (https://degrowth.org/conferences/) in 2018 there will be:


1) 6th International Degrowth Conference for Ecological Sustainability and Social Equity: Dialogues in turbulent times

Where: Malmo (Sweden)

When: 21-25 August 2018

This conference aims at expanding the geographical and thematic scope of degrowth discussions, as well as building dialogues with critical social theories, sciences and social movements. Malm? is a perfect city to host such a conference. Vibrant and mixed, but also relaxed and down-to-earth, it has a strong presence of alternative forms of organising and a varied cultural and grassroots life. We want this conference to further consolidate these and act as a platform for mutually enriching dialogues among groups from around the globe striving for a better world.

More info at: https://malmo.degrowth.org/

Find the calls for academics, activists and artists here (Deadline: 31st of December): https://malmo.degrowth.org/calls-for-participation/

Parallel to the 6th International Degrowth Conference, two complementary and twin events will take place:


2) The First North-South Conference on Degrowth: Decolonizing the social imaginary

Where: Mexico City (Mexico)

When: 4-6 September 2018 (Please, note that there has been a change in the dates. Previously it was: 19-21 June 2018).

Language: bi-lingual (English and Spanish)

EN: The First North-South Conference on Degrowth will be held in Mexico City, supported by universities, NGOs, and social movements. It will be an occasion to open and continue in-depth debates around the dominant illusions on economic growth. These are already ongoing debates inside and across the societies that are on their way to become modern and developed as well as those 'excelling' in these aspects. For the first time, a Latin American country will host an international gathering on Degrowth, after five conferences in Europe and one in Canada. Decolonization of the imaginary, Survival, Cultures, and Wealth will be the main issues under discussion.

ES: En 2018 tendrá lugar la Primera Conferencia Norte-Sur sobre Degrowth, México 4-6 Septiembre 2018, apoyada por entidades universitarias, ONG\’s y movimientos sociales de este país, con el propósito de abrir y dar continuidad a debates de gran calado en torno a las ilusiones o quimeras dominantes sobre el crecimiento económico, de las sociedades en camino de la modernidad y el desarrollo y las sociedades que sobresalen en estos aspectos. Por primera vez, un país Latinoamericano servirá de sede para debatir los temas del Decrecimiento, después de cinco conferencias en Europa y una en Canadá. Serán temas centrales de esta conferencia: la Descolonización del imaginario social, la Supervivencia, las Culturas y la Riqueza.


3) Degrowth in the EU Parliament: Post-growth conference to challenge the economic thinking of EU institutions with influential EU policy-makers

Where: European parliament, Brussels (Belgium)

When: 18-19 September 2018

A post-growth conference supported by various stakeholders (Members of the European Parliament from different political groups, academics, NGOs and unions) will take place in the premises of the European Parliament on September 18-19 2018, coinciding with the 10th anniversary of the collapse of the US Bank Lehman Brothers that sparked the economic crisis in which we are still trapped.

Given its central location close to the heart of the European Union decision-making, the conference will offer a unique opportunity for the EU civil society to confront their views with those of EU officials and staff that defines the core of the economic model and political priorities. Considering that the latter are not compatible with a fair and ecological transformation of our societies, workshops will address the theoretical design of models used to frame the European economy, the relevance and feasibility of basic income schemes, the ultimate goal of the internal market and the environmental consequences of technological progress. The aim of these days - about one year before the next European elections and the nomination of a new Commission - will be to create a cultural contagion effect by which the thinking of policy makers will tilt towards genuine sustainability.

The work will be preceded by a preparatory session at the Universit? Libre de Bruxelles and followed by a debriefing and exchanges on how to coalesce allies to ensure that change will actually happen.

More information will be communicated soon. For the moment, save the dates!

Future conferences: If anyone is interested to organize future international degrowth conferences, please do not hesitate to contact the Support Group.


Wishing you a degrowth new year,

The Support Group (SG)

The SG is the official promoter of the International Degrowth Conferences. It is composed by people who have been highly involved in the local organizing committees of the previous international conferences.
