Seminar on eco-social justice campaigning, 18 June 2013

The state of eco-social justice campaigning in East Asia and the Americas

Speakers: China Ngubane and Patrick Bond
Date: Tuesday, 18 June 2013
Time: 12:30-14:00
Venue: CCS Seminar Room, 602, 6th Floor, MTB Tower, Howard College

The Japanese 'TICAD' - Tokyo International Conference on African Development - was held in early June, replete with promises of $32 billion in new aid. A civil society counter-summit there came amidst other opportunities to assess Asian progressive solidarity, in Korea and Hong Kong. In all three countries, the openness to a Durban activist's perspective was heartwarming, and will ensure further progress in 'brics-from-below' connectivities between BRICS countries, hinterlands, and critical eco-social-justice campaigners. Meanwhile in New York City and Quito, Ecuador, two major conferences this week offered strategies for fusing economic and environmental justice campaigning.

China Ngubane coordinates the CCS Brutus Community Scholar programme and has been involved in anti-xenophobia and immigrant solidarity work in Durban for many years. He spent May 29-June 10 in Japan, Korea and China (Hong Kong), at civil society events. Patrick Bond, CCS Director, was a speaker at the Left Forum and the International Seminar on Civilisational Crisis, Ecosocialism and Buen Vivir.
