FROM ITALY: JOINT CALL FOR A NATIONAL MOBILIZATION ON OCTOBER 15th IN ROME

 CALL OCTOBER 15th WILL BE AN EUROPEAN AND INTERNATIONAL ACTION DAY

“human beings before profits, we are not goods in the hands of politicians and bankers,

those who claim to govern us, do not represent us,

the alternative does exist and it is in our hands, real democracy now!"

 

European Commission, european governments, European Central Bank, International Monetary Fund, multinational companies  and strong powers  present as untouchable  dogmas : payment of the debt, the balance of public budget, the financial markets' interests, privatizations, the cuts of social expenditure, the precarization of work and life.

They are unjust and wrong recipies, that protect rents and privileges, and make us all slaves.

They destroy work and its rights, trade unions, national collective contract, pensions, education, culture, common goods, territories, society and communities, all our rights that our Consituttion guarantees. They oppress the present time of a more and more impoverished population, denies the future to the youth.

They are not unavoidable choices. We reject them. Any political alliance who wants to impose them, will produce more social, environmental, democratic destruction.  There are different roads, and we want to go all over those roads, taking back our  full citizens' power that is the fundament of every real democracy.

We refuse one more step towards the abyss  Europe and Italy are making for, that is  more and more close to us because of the Governement 's budgetary manoeuvring  and the european economic policies.   

We want a true system alternative. We have to come out of the crisis through change and innovation. Adequate resources do exist. 

Investments must be put on ecological reconversion, social justice, another economy, knowledge, culture,  territories, participation.  Wealth must be redistributed radically.  We want to re-start from the results of the 12-13 june referendums, in order to give back the common goods  and the right to participation to the communities.  New resources have to be provided by the cut to military expenses. The wars must be stopped, the migrants have to be welcome! 

We have to achieve the alternatives, together. In Europe, in Italy, in the Mediterranean area, all over the world. Women and men, many, diverse, united.  It is the only way to win.

15th october Coordination, space for organisational convergence of the committed social actors, invite all women and men to prepare the mobilization and to be in the square in Rome, bringing into the demonstration their resolutions and issues, their struggles and proposals.  

FOR OUR DIGNITY AND FOR A REAL CHANGE
