Dig deep for Global Justice Schools in Manila and Amsterdam

Friday 10 June 2011, by Ronald Lara

From this 17th of July until the 7th of August 2011 the International Institute for Research and Education (IIRE) in Manila will organize the third Asian Global Justice School. At the end of this year the IIRE in Amsterdam will also organize a Global Justice School.

We hope to have participants from all over the world in the Amsterdam school which will be held, as usual, in three languages - Castilian, English and French. This makes it possible for comrades from Asia, Africa and Latin America to attend as well as Europeans.

Participants in the Asian Global Justice School especially are activists coming from very different countries and political traditions, most of them coming from across Asia. The school is a rare opportunity to exchange knowledge and experience across borders, strengthen international links and contribute to the building of a new Asian Left. A growing number of organizations is set to participate, but the school and participants are faced with financial constraints, especially because of rising airfares.

The IIRE Manila and IIRE Amsterdam have launched a joint appeal to seek sponsors for the travel costs of participants. At the moment we have candidates from Indonesia, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Sri Lanka who cannot attend unless they get financial support.

Donations should go to the SOWS foundation in Amsterdam.
