Course of the Day

Dieser Post ist auch verfügbar auf: German

All over Europe, people now stand in solidarity with the movements in Greece, they protest against the constraints of an austerity policy, which is being passed down to the people – with dramatic consequences in the countries of the “rescue packages“, but with increasing poverty also in Germany, thanks to Hartz IV, temporary work, exploding rents and impoverishment of municipalities. On this ground, uncertainty, nationalism and racism develop. Against this, we come to Frankfurt on March 18.

We are many groups and organizations including people from Attac, unionists, unemployed, North-South and peace initiatives as well as many other networks. We declare our solidarity with the people and emancipatory movements in Greece, all over Europe and the world.
