In this webinar, Madoda Cuphe discusses how the AIDC’s Building Counter Power programme responds to corporate dominance in every aspect of global society. Madoda will then explain why AIDC sees building counter power to corporate hegemony is important in building communities and reducing inequality. He will also talk about some of the social movements who through their community struggles and campaigns against corporate exploitation have joined forces with AIDC to form a formidable “counter power” agenda. The webinar further explains why in neutralising corporate domination it is important to build a national movement rooted in communities.
