Blockupy International coalition +++ Press release +++ 19th of May 2014 +++ “Our democracy and solidarity goes far beyond elections.”
“Our democracy and solidarity goes far beyond elections.”
+ movements across Europe participate in the days of action
+ Demonstrations and civil disobedience for democracy, solidarity and commons.
Tens of thousands in several countries participated in the first part of the European days of action “solidarity beyond borders – building democracy from below”.
Eleonora Cappuccilli from Bologna gives a first résumé for Blockupy international:
“Many initiatives joined the action days from outside the existing networks. Relations are built struggling for a Europe from below and a real democracy. The European movement is strengthened and broadened. These are great conditions for the coming struggles for solidarity, commons and radical democracy. The days of actions will continue until the day of the European elections on 25th of May. On 11th of July the Movement for a Europe from below will mobilize to Turin, to protest against the EU-summit on youth unemployment. In autumn we will get together in Frankfurt to turn the opening of the new ECB-towers into our party of a rising new Europe.”
