>common vision and agenda for the twenty-first century, reflecting our
>aspirations and ideals, for the construction of a new society and a new
>I. We want an end to the exploitation of corporate

>domination over our people, and oppressed peoples and nations throughout
>the globe. Capitalism is the root cause of the major forms of social
>misery, hunger and exploitation in the United States and the world.
>II. We want freedom, self-determination and full human rights. We want an
>end to all forms of human oppression--racism, homophobia, sexism,
>discrimination against disabled people, anti-immigrant discrimination,
>class exploitation, and imperialism. We assert our right to self
