NEWS CENTER – The “Network for an Alternative Quest” invites people to the conference “Challenging Capitalist Modernity IV: We want our world back — Resist, Reclaim and Rebuild” in Hamburg. The call can be read:
“Call for a collective stance to demand our world back!
This is a call to all those who are struggling for a free life and an end to all forms of exploitation. A call to gather together to demand an end to the destruction of our world and the environment. A call to gather together to put a stop to femicide, epistemicide, societycide, and genocide.
Our world has never before seen such a rate of destruction. In the last hundred years, not only are different languages and cultures dying off, but every day numerous plants and animals become extinct.
Capitalist modernity and its source, patriarchy, have brought us not only to the brink of the destruction of human society as we know it but also of our world. However, it is not all hopeless, if we take a collective stance, we may come out of the chaos with a better civilization — democratic civilization — but only if we do something about it now. We do not need to search for another world elsewhere; we want our world back!”
