Let’s Build Another Europe: Lessons and Perspectives

Alter Summit meeting in Paris

Venue: tbc

Inscription: u50msn@acv-csc.be


Expanded Assembly for social movements & organisations


Mobilisations of October have been an important experience for our network and those we work with (EuroMarchas, Belgian and European networks etc.). Successes and limits of these mobilisations are rich in lessons.

More widely, must the adversity of the political and economical actual situation lead to rethink our future activities and actions?

We propose to do this balance with other actors of the social movement present during EuroMarchas and Days of Actions in Brussels.

Crisis exit is not in view. At the contrary, austerity plans and other neoliberal policies are beeing implemented everywhere in Europe weakening and hitting always more people fundamental rights (social, labour, democratic) as the actuality in Greece or Portugal shows. Must this novel situation lead to modify or adapt our practices and reflexions ?
