For the European Spring – Taking a new step!

Thaw is setting in as the European Spring announces itself. The ice of the European crisis regime – of Troika mandates and ruthless impoverishment policy – is clearly showing cracks. That which appeared without alternative and was only to be enforced technocratically has returned to the political stage as an open question. The Europe of capital and austerity, the Europe of a German head teacher and mandated homework has been challenged. First and foremost, this is the merit of the movements … [Read more...]

An incredible coincidence – as today we are also faced with a new era, one that has broken out rather suddenly with its origin in Greece.
