Castellano

The José Martí Project of International Solidarity, which hereby convokes to the Second International Conference With All and for the Good of All, to be held in the Palace of Conventions of Havana, Cuba, from the 25th to the 28th of January, 2016.

The Conference will broach the problems generated by the globalizing project of modernization in decay, and the options to transform and improve the world in fields such as the following:

The cultural and moral dimension in fields like

  • The risks and hopes offered by the technological and scientific development, particularly the new information technologies
  • Access to education and culture for the exercise of basic human rights in the circumstances of the 21st century
  • Migrations and the cultural dialogue as themes that require being handled deeply and not superficially.
  • The ethical framework of reference for the social action in the face of the crisis, based on the best contributions of Latin American thought, from Simón Bolívar and José Martí to the most relevant thinkers of the 20th century and of our days.

The social dimension in fields like:

  • The impairment of the living conditions of both rural and urban workers in all regions of the planet
  • The role and challenges of the new social movements that emerge from the crisis
  • The struggle against all forms of discrimination – of gender, race, creed, age and social condition – that legitimize the inequality and criminalize the struggle in favor of social justice
  • The role of feminine organizations in social transformation. The right of women in society.
  • The unionist movement and its role in the struggles for a better world under the new conditions created by the global economic crisis
  • The role of youth, the students and their organizations; their insertion in the processes of change
  • The religious organizations, ecumenism, its contribution to peace and the earthly world longed for by human beings of good will
  • The native populations and the ethnical minorities: the need of policies of inclusion and respect in the face of exclusion and marginalization.
  • Drug consumption and drug traffic: causes, consequences and opposition to that widespread scourge.

The environmental dimension in fields like:

  • The generalization of the environmental conflicts derived from the transformation of the natural patrimony into natural capital through the appropriation of the essential resources for life in the poorest urban and rural sectors
  • The unceasing destruction of ecosystems that are vital for the existence of our species
  • The need to create a different atmosphere through the construction of different societies

The political dimension in fields like:

  • The fostering of participative democracy as means for the construction of new societies, with all and for the good of all
  • The struggle for the right to organization, mass communication and the free expression of targets and proposals by the majority sectors of our societies
  • The need to oppose terrorism in all its forms, particularly those aimed at preventing the participation of all in the discussion and solution of the problems of all
  • Justice as universal peace value. To respect and valuate International Law, conceived to represent the interests of all peoples of the world and not at the service of the most powerful

The economic dimension in fields like:

  • The struggle against the attempt to transfer to the rural and urban workers the costs of the crisis generated by the speculative activities of financial capital
  • The need to imagine and construct new economies based on harmonious relations of human beings among themselves and with their natural environment, which have the aim to allow us to be prosperous in order to be good
  • The promotion of the integration of the peoples and their States for the construction of solidary regional economies, linked by ties of mutual benefit that ensure common prosperity.
  • Integration and solidarity in Latin America and the Caribbean. CELAC, ALBA, UNASUR, CARICOM, MERCOSUR as central points of a new America. Possibilities and dangers threatening them.

Each one of these fields and thematic lines, as one may see, can and must be the object of multiple punctual initiatives of development. They will all be welcome.

The work of the Conference will be carried out in commissions and plenary, and comprises in addition the celebration of a Youth Forum, a UNESCO symposium “For a Culture of Nature”, a workshop on the patriots and thinkers of Our America and a round table In Defense of Humankind.
