Invitation to meeting in Auckland on capitalism's terminal crises

m e e t i n g     i n v i t a t i o n

terminal 5
how Arab revolutions 
and unnatural disasters
fit with the five terminal crises 
of global capitalism

Feudalism, slavery and every previous civilisation in world history had seemed all-powerful to its citizens until a cluster of fatal crises sent the system plunging into a death spiral – and the painful birth of another type of civilisation.

So it will be with global capitalism. Today the world system we live under faces certain doom from the uncontrollable intensification and interaction of five terminal crises: • profitability • ecology • resources • imperialism • legitimacy.

The future of humanity is at stake. People wishing to influence the future must be able to read the signs in order to design realistic strategies for human survival and social solidarity.

GRANT MORGAN is a longtime ecosocialist in NZ and editor of Arab solidarity website kiaoragaza.net. He has been investigating how the five terminal crises of world capitalism link into the wave of Arab democratic revolutions and the terrible tsunami of unnatural disasters (earthquakes triggered by climate change).

Grant will be speaking on these era-altering issues. After his talk there will be open floor discussion. You and your family and friends are invited to attend.

Meeting details:

7pm on Friday 22 April
Socialist Centre, 86 Princes St, Onehunga, Auckland
