As well as an action organised by the full European network in Berlin, as was decided in our last meeting in Greece (Tribunal against the Euro-crisis in Berlin with alternative proposals to the current policies). The ATTAC Europe network gives maximum priority to this action, to the actions of the 1st of October, and to the mobilization against the G20 (see below), to be used as milestones in the process of strengthening the joint effort to really work on a European scale in a much closer and coordinated way.
