Academics, intellectuals, educators and social activists from 16 countries will attend the Ninth International Workshop on Emancipatory Paradigms scheduled for Havana from January 10 to 13.

Participants will come from Argentina, Australia, Austria, Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, Chile, El Salvador, Spain, the United States, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Peru and Venezuela.

Most of them belong to regional organizations and networks such as the World March of Women, Via Campesina, the Brazilian Landless Workers’ Movement, the Civic Council of Indigenous and Popular Organizations, the Mexican Indigenous National Congress and The Other Campaign, and the Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front of El Salvador.

Mylene Montero, a specialist of the Cuban Institute of Philosophy, told ACN that the main topic of the discussions will be the people’s social movement in Latin America.

The agenda also includes topics such as the crisis of Capitalism and alternatives from Latin America, impact, strategic role in the new world political scenario, socio-political popular movements and the construction of new models of emancipation.

There will be a session dedicated to Cuba on social diversity and integration.

The first event of this kind took place in Havana in 1995 and it has been held every other year since then.
