Life Despite Capitalism - Building Radical Economies


Life Despite Capitalism
Building Radical Economies

Friday 31st October –
Tuesday 4th November, 2008


In the beginning of November 2008, the Escanda collective in Spain along with others will be hosting a four-day radical economics gathering. We will analyse why the current economic system has failed and we will learn from the possibilities and experiences of those working despite capitalism to build autonomous networks of production and circulation from a basis of sustainability, self organization,

The gathering will focus both on the theory of radical economics and the practice: working towards creating and building radical economies within and between our own movements and collectives. We will provide a space for networking and there will be our very own radical marketplace for participants to bring, exchange, barter and give away goods as well as services etc.
