We are approaching the 5th Meeting of the International Labour Network of Solidarity and Struggles, which will begin on the evening of 10 September and continue until 12 September in the city of São José dos Campos, São Paulo.
With representatives from various countries in Europe, the Americas and Africa, among others, the activity will serve to exchange experiences and strengthen the organisation of the international working class, which is experiencing an important moment of debate against capitalism and its effects, attacks on rights, privatisations, layoffs, wars and imperialism in the world, climate change and so many other issues that affect the future of humanity
The activity will also be a space for solidarity and international co-operation between workers from different professional categories and sectors.
The last meeting took place in April 2022 in the city of Dijon, France. On that occasion, it was agreed that the next meeting would be held in Brazil, following the 5th National Meeting of CSP-Conlutas, which takes place from 7 to 10 September in São Paulo.
