A new international

News in Brief by PN

A new radical international project has been launched by Michael Albert, one of the main speakers at the Peace News-initiated Rebellious Media Conference last October, and coordinator of one of the world’s largest radical websites: ZCommunications.

Michael is also a co-founder of Parecon, a vision of how to organise society in the future – and how to organise radical projects today (see PN 2530 and 2535).

The International Organisation for a Participatory Society (IOPS) is based on parecon principles as a bottom-up organisation, based on self-managing interconnected national branches and local chapters. The interim committee, which includes John Pilger, Noam Chomsky, David Graeber and Maya Evans, is calling for members.
