PPS-Sweden in progress

A swedish PPS project in progress

First of all, good luck to Paulo Rodriguez with your Belgian PPS project.

Time has come also for me to make a serious attempt to start a Swedish PPS-Project. As in the case with Paulo Rodriguez in Belgium I have been thinking about this for some time. Early on I made a few unsuccessful attempts to find the person behind the existing Swedish Parecon site, a site that hasn’t been updated since year 2000. I was not able to find this person. However, I have finally found some people interested in helping with the creation of a new website and in addition, some potential financing has emerged. Also, during spring I have been doing talks about Parecon at some gatherings and in the process I have noticed that there is a potential interest in participating in a Parecongroup.
So, therefore it is now time to make a serious effort. The plan is to have a Swedish Parecon group with a working website up and running this fall. The set-up and purpose of the group will be similar to already existing projects elsewhere. The main purpose at the start will be to spread information and knowledge about Parsoc/Parecon through different activities such as participation at socialist forums, giving talks at various other events, arrange study circles for people wanting to learn more/discuss the model, and of course the creation and maintenance of a website. At some point in the future the group will hopefully also function as a support group for workplaces that want to implement various parts of the pareconmodel .
Any recommendation and/or suggestion from people who have experience from similar PPS projects are welcome.
