Prague

About 400 people participated in the demonstration called Real Democracy Now and demanded participatory democracy, social justice, decent life and sustainable development. The meeting took place in the very centre of Prague (Republic Sq.) and was followed with a march to the buildings of the Government, Parliament and President
(Prague Castle). A very broad range of people took part, including those from the civic initiatives SDT (Real Democracy Now!), Alternative from Below, Humanist Movement, No to Military Bases!, For Alternatives, Socialist Solidarity, New Anticapitalist Left, anarchists and individuals from the Communist, Social Democrat and Green parties.
A much bigger demonstration and a march, organized jointly by civic initiatives and trade unions, will be organized in a similar way on the next Saturday, Oct 22nd.

  • GERMANY Around 40.000 people demonstrating in all the country.

Berlin videos photos

The day started with 10.000 people in the street. They took the Bundestag (German parlament) and set up more than 6 tents.
The police remove at first everything they put up like the food stand, but then they went against the people, they evict them in a violent way and the camp/assembly got down.
But the camp was seeting up again.
Also if they were brutally reprimied by the polizei they were one, “ein Volk” all night long, 500 hundred people stayed peacefully in front of the Parliament but the police evicted the people violently (a girl was pepper-sprayed).
The assembly at Brandenburgertor has agreed to meet again on Sunday at 13h at Brandenburgertor and to bring as many tents as possible.
After the assembly peacefully dissolved itself they were all slowly walking to the S-Bahn and the polizei captured one of them. This guy, probably related to occupytogether, had talked in the assembly and had organized a group to go meet right after the dissolution of the assembly to organise for Sunday. He didn’t do anything at all, but the police heard he was organizing and so ran after him and captured him, sequestrated him in the Adlon hotel and then cleared out unter den linden so nobody could film or photograph him coming out of Adlon hotel grabbed by the polizei.
The next day 1000 people was present in the assembly in front of the bundestag in a very cool ambiant, deciding what will be the next steps. They decided to meet the next day in front of the parliament, it looks like the real German movement is being born.

London

They was not allowed into the London stock exchange area (paternoster square) as it is ‘private land’ however the priest of the cathedral has given them permission to stay in front of the iconic St Paul’s cathedral very nearly, which is church land, they also asked to the police witch was blocking all entries to the square to leave and let them in peace.
They were aggressively refusing exit, in fact they were even forcing tourists back in with aggressive verbals.
Clearly the cops were provoking innocent bystanders, a 6 year old had his hair blown back by a policeman shouting straight in the terrified kids face.
More than 3.000 people stayed during the assembly where Julian Assange made an intervention, they were talking about the ocuppation of the square that night.
70-100 tents this first night for 250 people who stayed in cold weather, more arrived the next day and the assembly was in full swing…
The police were besieging the square in a very strong way, making many people leave. video

Peaceful demonstration in the San Giovanni Square till a group of around 500 people with masks decided to throw stones and Molotov cocktails to the buildings and start a violent fight with the police.

Young Moroccan militants came to demonstrate against capitalism and for a global democracy. When they were about to finish the preparations in the local of ATTAC / CADTM Morocco, police surrounded the place, stepped inside, struck and arrested militants which were later released. The incident has motivated a statement in which ATTAC / CADTM reported violation of democratic rights in Morocco. This was not the only repressive measures. Around 16:30 pm about thirty artivists dressed as clowns were beaten by the thugs of the Makhzen (State), led by Amine Elbardoudi, leader of the royalist youth anti-20F and founder of the armed unit ‘Allah, Nation, King’, according to ‘Mamfakinch.com‘. Also a demonstration organized by the February 20 movement outside parliament was repressed with brutality in Rabat.

About author
We are just like you, citizens of the world fed up with the critical situation and we believe a real change can be achieved through the coordination of non violent actions and self-managed alternatives around the world. There must be a better way of dealing with the survival and enjoyment of our life, we believe in consensus and in non-hierarchical organization. We believe that another world is possible, where nobody has to die of hunger while others throw food away. We don’t have flags and we fight the borders crossing them. We try to be in the best place at the good moment, from Brussels to Lisbon, from Madrid to Athens, reporting but also acting. We come from activist groups, hacking platforms or post capitalist projects and we participated a lot in the Spanish revolution since the beginning. We leave our respective assemblies for this international project of global coordination but we keep in touch, sending back information and visiting regularly. We are open to integrate new people to ou
