Finishing off the #GlobalMay – from May 31st to June 1st – Blockupy Frankfurt is happening for the second year running, taking aim at the heart of EU Austerity policies: the European Central Bank (ECB). Alongside the European Commission and the International Monetary Fund, the ECB is central to the Troika and the harsh measures attached to European bailout packages. So we're going to shut it down! 31St will be blocking the ECB and the 1st will be a mass demonstration through the financial district of Frankfurt.
On June 1st, coinciding with the Blockupy mass-demonstration, a call has gone up for a Europe-wide day of protest beginning in Portugal with Que Se Lixe a Troika! (Screw the Troika) and with support from Las Mareas (the tides) in Spain.
On June 7th and 8th, we invite all European movements and organizations to the Alter Summit in Athens.
This event will be organized with the Greek social movement with the support of civil society organizations, trade unions, NGOs, political and cultural personalities from all around Europe.
The Alter Summit in Athens will be a step forward in the building of more convergence between movements opposed to the current anti-social and anti-ecological policies promoted by European governments and institutions.
