The MR-2004 is a four day international event, scheduled for January 17-20, 2004. It is independent of and will run parallel to the World Social Forum (WSF), Mumbai.
It is part of the process of building a strong worldwide anti-imperialist movement going beyond the limits of WSF (see Why Mumbai Resistance 2004?) towards organised resistance building upon the militant experiences and lessons of the recent anti-globalisation and anti-war movements.
MR 2004 has a clear and unambiguous anti-imperialist focus (Introducing MR 2004) and seeks to unite those who are genuinely opposed to imperialist globalisation and wars of aggression. Through sharing experiences and analysing imperialist strategies, it aims at developing a perspective that will take the movement forward, and uniting all struggling forces, irrespective of the forms of struggle they may choose, to confront and ultimately defeat imperialism.
MR 2004 stands for a concretely defined alternative socio-economic structure (unlike the amorphous “another world is possible” of the WSF) built on a basis of self-reliance, moving towards a genuine socialist order.
MR 2004 program includes a two-day seminar and a series of workshops (a brief outline of the programme) on issues that affect the lives of the people, a day of cultural resistance on January 19th and a mammoth mass rally on January 20th.
We call on all those in favour of a militant and sustained struggle against imperialist globalisation and war to join this process. See list of sponsors and participants.
