QUEZON CITY, Manila. Ten countries have attended the 8th Asian Global Justice School on July 7-26 organized by the International Institute for Research and Education.

A discussion on “Our Marxism” given by Pierre Rousset of France kicked off the first day. He says changes in societies are due chiefly to the development of internal contradictions e.g. class, gender, ecological. Afternoon group sessions then followed where each presented their analyses on issues on modes of production, convergence of social struggles and strategies. Rousset’s discussion served as the theoretical foundation of the next topical discussions.

Alex de Jong of IIRE Netherlands emphasized that, “imperialist power does that mean big country…different countries can be imperialist”. De jong delivered the second day talk on Modern Imperialism where he asked participants to analyze and identify which countries were imperialist among the list of countries he showed. 
Crisis on the Middle East, East Asia, and Europe were the entry points for discussion on the economics behind the Global Capitalist Crisis on the third day. Rousset delivered the topic.
An excursion trip concluded the first week of the school where participants visited labor group Philippine Airlines Employees’ Association (PALEA) and factory workers of Cavite Export Processing Zone (CEPZ). Participants had the chance to listen to how PALEA solidified international solidarity whereas Cavite EPZ labor unions from FAREMO International and Seung Yeun Technology Industries Corporation shared their numerous wins over labor disputes between factory workers and their companies. Their struggles continue.
