Warmest greetings of solidarity!
We, the International Coordinating Committee (ICC), hereby urge you as member- organization of the International League of Peoples’ Struggle (ILPS) to send a delegation to the Fourth International Assembly (4thIA) of the International League of Peoples’ Struggle from July 7 to 9, 2011 in the Philippines.
We hold the 4th IA in the Philippines in accordance with the decision of the ICC in November 2009 and on the basis of the recommendations of the International Coordinating Group on its meeting of March 2010.
The theme of the Fourth International Assembly is “Build a Bright Future! Mobilize the People to Resist Exploitation and Oppression Amidst the Protracted Global Depression, State Terrorism and Wars of Aggression!”
We condemn and resist the protraction of the global depression and the escalation of exploitation and plunder due to the continuing US-directed policy of neoliberal globalization and the onslaught of state terrorism and imperialist wars of aggression due to the continuing US-instigated policy of the so-called global war of terror.
We in the ILPS are all deeply gratified and highly honored that our member-organizations have played a highly significant militant role in the international anti-imperialist struggle. The ILPS, its commissions and member-organizations have been the initiators and the base for building new mass organizations and alliances and launching international conferences, campaigns and other activities against imperialism on issues that involve and relate to the 18 concerns of the League.
Through the Fourth Assembly, we in the ILPS must raise higher our political will and capabilities to mobilize the broad masses of the people against imperialism and all its reactionary lackeys. The Fourth International Assembly will assess and evaluate the work of the League over the past three years and adopt the plans to further strengthen and expand the League to be able to face the challenges and effectively advance its work in every arena of the anti-imperialist struggle.
Please find below the Participation Form and the tentative Program for the Fourth International Assembly. We urge you to fill in and submit the Participation Form before March 15, 2011. We also call on you to recommend to us other anti-imperialist and democratic organizations that should be invited to the 4th IA.
The Participation Fee for the three-day assembly is US$ 250.00. The fee covers food and accommodations for the duration of the assembly and assembly expenses.
The 4th International Assembly will be preceded by a 2-day International Festival of People’s Rights and Struggle to be held from 5-6 July 2011 in Metro Manila. Please inform us if you wish to attend the festival so that we can refer you to the organizers.
We take this opportunity to remind you to pay your organization’s annual membership dues of US$150 to the ILPS. You can pay your outstanding membership dues and the assembly registration fees either through your national chapter if any, through Moneybookers (using our website’s online payment function), or upon registration at the 4th IA.
For more information on the Fourth International Assembly please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org and/or email@example.com. You may also find from our website (http://www.ilps.info/) information on the ILPS.
