The International League of Peoples Struggles (ILPS) is a democratic global formation of peoples organizations in over 30 countries worldwide. It aims to advance the cause of social and economic justice in relation to 18 principal democratic concerns. and displacement is concern #16. In this regard, the ILPS most recently mobilized global actions against displacement of farmers due to mining, Special Economic Zones (SEZs), and militarization in the Indian state of Orissa. It is currently campaigning for the immediate and unconditional release of Indian anti-displacement activists who are still in detention. It has also been supportive of US efforts to organize around Katrina and Rita survivors. This forum aims to connect seemingly disparate struggles to a sharper realization of a global phenomenon.
There is currently an initiative of ILPS member organizations in the US to form a US-wide chapter of ILPS.
The ILPS LOC is a local initiative comprised of the following local member groups:
* Al-Awda NY, the Palestinian Right to Return Coalition
* Bayan USA (Philippines)
* Malcolm X Grassroots Movement (MXGM)
