Anti-Capitalist - A Conference Against Capitalismposted by MR WAVETHEORY at 1/20/2007 03:59:00 AM
More than 80,000 people gathered for an annual anti-capitalist conference in Kenya's capital on Saturday, hoping to network with other activists and protest global policies they say hurt the poor.
The World Social Forum will be a chance to showcase "Africa and her unbroken history of struggle against foreign domination, colonialism and neocolonialism," according to a statement on the event Web site.
The forum kicked off with several hundred protesters marching from Kenya's sprawling Kibera slum to downtown Nairobi. About a third of Nairobi's total population, at least 700,000 people, is crammed into a single square mile in Kibera, with little access to running water and other basic services.
Venture capitalists of the world beware of the Anti-Capitalist! For the festivities, look no further than here. Needless to say I won't be there. Imagine a world without capitalists! Scary isn't it? There wouldn't be any bad people in the world anymore. And there wouldn't be any more goodies either. I wonder what I would miss most. Post what you would miss most in the comments!! Winner gets special mention in Mr Wave Theory.
