CWI world congress success
130 delegates and visitors from 34 countries came together in Belgium from 25-30 January for the 11th World Congress of the Committee for a Workers International (CWI).
The opening session focused on the new stage of the economic crisis and the international feature of deep instability. This was followed by a separate discussion on the US and the presidential campaign of left-winger Bernie Sanders, where up to 30,000 have attended rallies and one million individuals have donated money.
The Europe discussion highlighted similar upheavals with a political polarisation taking place and a growth of new left alternatives in several countries. Many delegates reported on campaigns taking a socialist response to attempts by capitalist politicians and the far right to whip up division in light of the refugee crisis.
There were also detailed discussions on the developments in Latin America, Africa and South Asia, as well as one on women and oppression.
The final sessions covered organising and building the CWI, including electing a new International Executive Committee. Delegates left enthused and prepared for the challenges and opportunities ahead.
