Resistance to World Economic Forum in Davos

Leaders of the world’s nation-states are now gathering in Davos, Switzerland for the World Economic Forum.

“Globalization 4.0: Shaping a Global Architecture in the Age of the Fourth Industrial Revolution” is the theme this year.

This theme is an attempt to address the “profound global instability” brought by technological changes and the rise of the far right in global governance.

This meeting of capitalist world powers was met with profound resistance from revolutionary organizations.

Anarchists, anti-fascists, and a variety of other organizations took to the streets and demonstrated the vibrancy of the global resistance to capitalist globalization and to far right governments.

Thousands of revolutionaries marched in downtown Bern, articulating diverse political visions that were all aligned on anti-capitalism, anti-fascism, and for communization.

The resistance is expected to escalate as the meeting continues.
