Major Communist Conference Held in Melbourne

This weekend, several hundred Trotskyists, communists, unionists, anarchists and indigenous activists have gathered in Melbourne Australia to plot the downfall of Western capitalist civilisation.

The conference, The Latin American & Asia Pacific International Solidarity Forum is the brainchild of Australia's largest Marxist-Leninist organisation, the Democratic Socialist Perspective (DSP).

It is co-sponsored by a range of mainly Australian radical organisations including Actively Radical TV, Australian Solidarity with Latin America (DSP front), Australia Cuba Friendship Society, Communist Party of Australia, Communist Party of Chile, Chilean Popular Indigenous Network, Direct Action, Electrical Trades Union (Vict.), Fairwear Campaign, Friends of the Earth, Farabundo Martí National Liberation Front (FMLN), Green Left Weekly (DSP magazine), International Socialist Organisation, Maritime UNion of Australia (Victoria), Radio 3CR, Resistance (DSP Youth wing), Socialist Alliance (DSP front), Socialist Party, Solidarity (Sydney), Ocean Press and Union Union Solidarity


More than 40 representatives from "progressive" organisations and campaigns in 22 countries will address the forum.

* Mike Treen, Unite Union
* Phillip Ferguson, NZ Workers Party and lecturer at Canterbury University

The presence of the Workers Party is interesting as until recently there have been few links between the DSP and our local neo-Maoists. Their common interest seems to be support for president Chavez's unfolding Venezuelan revolution.

Conference themes include;

The histories & experiences of struggles & movements of resistance

Campaigning & organising strategies

Anti-capitalist & revolutionary theory & practice

Emerging alternatives to neo-liberalism

Saving our planet from ecological collapse

Indigenous struggles & resistance

Cultural action & liberation


This conference proves several things beyond the obvious "communism is not dead".

Firstly it shows the level of integration between the mainstream communist parties of Vietnam and Cuba and the newer revolutons of East Timor, El Salvador, Venezuela, the Philippines and Bolivia.

Secondly it shows the growing links beteen the mainstream communist parties and the once hated Trotskyists and Maoists.

Thirdly it demonstrates the links beteen the indigenous rights, green, women's, labour movements and the resurgent world revolutionary movement.
