We would greatly like some proposals from all people worldwide, especially
marginalized communities and minorities.

The Mission Statement:

A World Beyond Capitalism (AWBC) 2005 invites activists to come to
Portland, Oregon in August 2005 and engage in a weekend of educational
discussion and visionary dialogue.

We believe in the need to reflect and imagine the future of the world
beyond capitalism. We will emphasize the need for multi-lingual,
long-term

strategy through open dialogue and bridging political theory with
practice.

By building on the increasing number of conferences worldwide in which
people from diverse backgrounds, races and cultures discuss subjects
regarding world peace, we hope to build solidarity among diverse
organizing communities.

Over 1000 participants from Canada, Kenya, Mexico, Ghana, Germany, the
U.S. and all over the world will come together in harmony in Portland,
Oregon in August 2005 to share ideas regarding new visions, changing the
world, the
cooperative movement, intentional communities and much, much more. Come
and be a part of this tremendous occasion. Activist, Punks, Minority and
Marginalized

Communities from Alternative medicine healers and activists, Intentional
communities, Permaculture Homes, co-ops, independent publishing
communities, progressive activist groups and other equality seeking groups
are invited to volunteer, table, or just fellowship, network and learn with
every one from all over the world. There will also be a performance of
live, multicultural musicians and a theatrical debut prior to the
conference. August 26-28, 2005, Portland State University,

Portland, Oregon. Not only is this a conference, but it is a
multi-lingual, multi-racial alliance building experience. This conference
will create alliances in a manner which transcends the boundaries of the
English Language, Race, Class, Gender, Age, Ability, Sexual Orientation
and Endless Theory.

In addition, The Grassroots Exhibition enables non-government and
non-corporate people and groups of many different types the chance to
come
together in solidarity. The Grassroots Exhibition gives everyone the
opportunity to share information and items with people outside of their
usual circle of friends, yet still amongst those who desire to see a world
that is beyond forced corporate dependence and capitalism. Below are a few
of the different groups that you can look forward to seeing at the

Mrs Conclusion: What was Jean-Paul like?

Mrs Premise: Well, you know, a bit moody. Yes, he didn't join
in the fun much. Just sat there thinking. Still,
Mr. Rotter caught him a few times with the whoopee
cushion. (she demonstrates) Le Capitalisme et La
Bourgeoisie ils sont la meme chose...Oooh we did laugh.
Thanks all, sisters and brothers.

That qualifies as 'discussion'...

...but I'm not sure about the 'visionary' part. :o)
