SEPLA’s declaration in defense of ATTAC Argentina

  Declaración de SEPLA La SEPLA hace propia la declaración de ATTAC Argentina y denuncia el accionar del gobierno argentino y de la Inspección General de Justicia, levantando sospechas completamente infundadas de lavado de dinero respecto a dicha asociación y su recepción de fondos completamente legales y registrados. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Declaración de ATTAC ARGENTINA Denunciamos la persecución ideológica y el intento de amedrentarnos Desde ATTAC Argentina les decimos “No lograrán AMEDRENTARNOS”. ATTAC es una organización mundialmente reconocida por su activismo contra los paraísos fiscales y el lavado de dinero. Resulta absurdo y repugnante que un gobierno plagado de evasores, con cuentas off shore pretenda manchar a una organización como ATTAC acusándola de lavado de dinero. Las sumas que recibió ATTAC Argentina, como donación por parte de organizaciones internacionales de renombre y que comparten nuestras ideas, además de ser ínfimas, fueron recibidas cumpliendo con toda la normativa bancaria y fueron destinadas, con el correspondiente respaldo documental, a realizar campañas contra los paraísos fiscales, la evasión fiscal y el pago de las ilegítimas Deudas Públicas de los países del tercer mundo. No tenemos nada que esconder, nuestras acciones e iniciativas son abiertas y públicas. (more…)

Fidel  Castro: His teachings and legacy will remain in the memory of all peoples

The Latin American Society of Political Economy and Critical Thinking salutes the Cuban people for the physical loss of the leader of the revolution in Cuba. His example is our legacy and his teachings inspire our daily practice to articulate popular and specific professional knowledge to assay various ways of transition from capitalism to socialism. The teachings of Fidel are many, among others, that "everything that has to be changed should be changed", as example of criticism and permanent transformation in a world with recurrent mutations. The leader of the revolution teaches us critical thinking in everyday life, even for self-criticism and renewal of thinking and doing themselves to ensure the anticapitalist, antiimperialist and anticolonial perspective. As legacy, we assume the responsibility from SEPLA to deepen critical studies of contemporary capitalist society and to think of the horizon of social transformation. The Cuban experience is invaluable in guiding the dreams of a socialist horizon. From SEPLA we say with all peoples struggling for their liberation: HASTA LA VICTORIA SIEMPRE COMANDANTE FIDEL !

IIPPE statement on the crackdown on its members in Turkey

IIPPE Council has been concerned with events in Turkey in the wake of the failed coup. In particular, we condemn the restrictions and pressures that have been placed upon our own members, which have meant that significant numbers have been unable to attend our Annual Conference in Lisbon in September, 2016. We are also disturbed by the potential threat to the health of political economy and political economists in Turkey, and support the efforts of TSSA to sustain its presence in Turkish academic and social life as part and parcel of its more general endeavours to promote social science in Turkey.
