Upcoming Event: International Seminar: Food, Water and Energy are Not Commodities!

The Movement of People Affected by Dams (MAB) along with other US organizations and social movements that form part of the U.S. Solidarity Committee with the Movement of People Affected by Dams (MAB) would like to invite you and your organization to participate in the II International Seminar: Food, Water and Energy Are Not Commodities! and III International Encounter of MAB Allies to be held from March 12th to 14th, 2017, at Rutgers University, Newark, New Jersey.

Similar seminars were organized in São Paulo, Brazil and Bilbao, Basque Country/Spain. The “International Seminar: Food, Water and Energy are Not Commodities!”  is a convergence space for different movements and organizations of different countries debating the unity of the struggles and analyzing the exploitation of natural resources and workers.

This year, the II International Seminar will be held in the United States and will count on the contribution of social and grassroots activists, trade-unionists and social researchers of North and Latin America, Europe, and Africa. The U.S. Solidarity Committee is grateful for the support and co-sponsorship of Climate Justice Alliance (CJA) and the Trade Unions for Energy Democracy (TUED).

Spaces are limited. Interested students from sponsoring departments should contact Melissa Miles at msmelmiles@gmail.com for instructions on how to register.
