Announcement :: Globalization
07 May 2008
La gobernanza local participativa es posible y urgente; cada vez somos más los que compartimos estas convicciones y las últimas están proclamadas por las instituciones.

May Day 2008- International anarchist communist statement
05 May 2008
Towards a new international movement of the exploited,
Against neo-liberalism, against war, against hunger and poverty,
For peace, food and housing for all, for safe and secure jobs,
Towards the libertarian alternative!

* all efforts to contribute to the development of the international class-struggle anarchist movement, by supporting its political networks and its capacity for social insertion in the struggles and struggle fronts in support of popular power, so that we can spread the anarchist communist project and put the libertarian alternative into practice.
