OXI ! BASTA ! ENOUGH ! No to corporate takeover of agriculture and the climate! Because family farming and peasant agriculture guarantees food sovereignty and can cool the climate! Call to all organizations and movements sharing our motto to integrate the action framework, contribute to our program and join us for the European Marches and in Brussels on 15th, 16th & 17th October
The people said Oxi! No! in Greece. A No! to the cruel and unreasonable demands of austerity and consequent impoverishment. Throughout Europe, hundreds of thousands were in the streets supporting the Greek people – knowing that defending the Greek struggles also means defending our rights all over Europe.
The European elites, in the name of profit and competitiveness, destroy social justice, democracy, agriculture, climate and use Europe as a playing field for their own interests. They blackmail and humiliate those who dare to resist; they rule with fear, nationalism, racist division and claim that there are no alternatives.
But we build alternatives through our various and cross-linked struggles.
Let’s develop our solidarity beyond borders, our strength in this European-wide Oxi! Basta! Enough! Let’s build another Europe now!
1 Because austerity and debt impoverish us and destroy our social, labour and democratic rights
2 Because we refuse poverty and precariousness
3 Because free-trade agreements (TTIP, CETA, TISA, ACP, APE, TTP and others) strengthen the power of mutinational corporations and destroy the planet and democracy
4 Because we are committed against racism and sexism
5 Because we denounce corruption and tax havens
Our Oxi! No! is a Yes! to equality, social and labour rights and real democracy ! A Yes! for European debt cuts !
A Yes! to climate justice and to peasant agriculture !
In October, we will march from all over Europe to Brussels, we will surround the European elites and their hidden negotiations during the EU Council Summit, we will debate and demonstrate.
Come and join !
