The “Allied Grounds” conference will take place on Oct. 5-7 at the Haus der Demokratie und Menschenrechte in Berlin. To warm up for the event, watch a video talk by Harsha Walia on internationalist and multiracial workers struggles against eco-apartheid.
At the heart of the “Allied Grounds” conference are workshops that will bring together scholars, activists, and cultural workers to explore and construct the intersection of environmental and labor struggles from multiple perspectives. To this end, the conference will offer five different workshops: “Eco-Internationalism for All?”, “(Un)Working Balkans”, “Jobs vs. Nature?”, “Working-Class Environmentalism”, and “Dismantling Eco-Fascism”.
In order to create the conditions for creative processes, the organizers of the conference have invited guests from 25 countries, including Sana Ahmad, Nidzara Ahematova, Alistair Alexander, Sabrina Apitz, Dario Azzelini, Lori Šramel Čebular, Angelina Davydova, Abiol Lual Deng, Antje Dietrich, Aslı Dinç, Lorenzo Feltrin, Francesca Gabbriellini, Rahul Goswami, Daniel Gutiérrez, Max Haiven, Adriana Homolova, Paola Imperatore, Özgün Eylül İşcen, Daria Iuriichuk, Jennifer Kamau, Nelli Kambouri, Katrin Kämpf, Holger Kral, Rositsa Kratunkova, Angelina Kussy, Davide Gallo Lassere, Laura Macaya, Gorana Mlinarevic, Marina Milanovic, Julia Molin, Svjetlana Nedimovic, mirko nikolić, Claudia Núñez, Eliana Otta, Marta Peirano, Florin Poenaru, Nina Pohler, Cristina Pombo, Juliane Rettschlag, Jaron Rowan, Sotiris Sideris, Tatjana Söding, Nicolay Spesivtsev, Alexandra Stefanescu, Kübra Tokuç, Niloufar Vadiati, Mihajlo Vujasin, Manuela Zechner, and Dzina Zhuk.
