MORE DETAILS FORTHCOMING!
Join the International League of Peoples' Struggle (ILPS), Third World Resistance (TWR), and The Center for Political Education (CPE) for an afternoon of celebration, movement building, and political education in honor of the 60th anniversary of the Asian-African Conference, popularly known as the Bandung Conference.
We will host a panel discussion to explore the historical significance of the conference and its relevance for our current struggles. We will also share food and music and strategize based on lessons learned from the Bandung Era of the 60s and 70s.
Beginning on April 18th, 1955, the week-long conference united a number of formerly colonized countries and national liberation movements to build a common struggle against colonialism. The internationalist spirit of Bandung was recently brought to life in the January 2015 Commemoration and Reclaiming of Martin Luther King Jr.’s Legacy at a moment when police killings of Black people across the U.S. have spiked. Palestinian, Filipino, Haitian, Chicano, API, Black Liberation groups and allies once again raised the banner of “Third World Resistance” against police and military repression.
The 60th anniversary celebration will kick off Bandung Summer, a series of forums hosted by these various communities aimed at building knowledge and concrete forms of “solidarity in practice” with each other's struggles against imperialism and settler colonialism.
Suggested Donation of $5-$10 at the door. No one turned away for lack of funds. Proceeds from the event will help fund the delegation!
