Stop austerity! Stop privatizations! Water, land, income, house, jobs, commons, social rights and democracy in Italy and Europe Call for the construction of a nationalwide demonstration in Rome (Italy) on May 17th
A new era in privatization of the commons, in attacks against our social rights and democracy is beginning.
The extraordinary victory achieved at 2011 water referendum shows that consent to a “private is better” ideology has ended and the multitude of open conflicts dealing with the defence of commons and local territories suggests the possibility and the urgency of a new social model.
But crisis, built on the trap of public debt, is proposing again the ideology of
“private is compulsory and indispensable” in a strong and fierce way. The aim is clear: allow the enormous amount of money hoarded by financial markets to take possession of our country’s and Europe’s social wealthness, dictating a corrupt productive model, commodifying commons and alienating basic rights.
