Our time to act has come! Transnational actions against the European Central Bank’s opening: March 18th 2015 in Frankfurt

2015 began with something unheard of. The people in Greece stood up against all threats from Europe and elected a new left government.

A government was elected to stand up to the European institutions, rather than to accept more austerity measures imposed on its people. We support the decision by the Greek people to reject the neoliberal … [Read more...]
