Demo/Inspection/Walk: Moving to the new ECB – We will lend our hands!
While our colleagues, friends and comrades in Southern Europe continue to rebel against the depletion and impoverishment policies of the Troika, the ECB moves into its new palace. Blockupy moves on to the road. We will make our own move to the new building and give back to the EBC the garbage – in and with many moving boxes – that should have been thrown into the dustbin of history: racist and sexist division, impoverishment, privatization of public funds and goods and wars to secure resources.
We will lend our hands and carry our criticism right in front of the door of the ECB, go to the entrance gates and the fence they are entrenching behind. We will be there, along with activists from organizations and networks from all over Europe. We are thinking and acting in creative forms of civil disobedience – across all those fences limiting us. No smooth move and no smooth crisis politics with us!
