1. To organize a European joint mobilization against Global Debt that combines the different struggles against budget cuts, privatization, nationalizing banks, etc:
The Paris’ Assembly opted by consensus for a triple watchword for the global action day of October (13O)
They propose the following themes:
– Opposition to budget cuts
– Cancellation of the illegitimate and obnoxious debt, whether it is our or the one that the other countries owe us
– Rewrite the rules of the game in a democratic and popular way
=) MA from Madrid says that there is already a global call : http://cadtm.org/For-joint-actions-around-the-Greek
But this call is not clear about the abolition of debt
=) the proposal of participants is that the assembly of Paris will explain why to say that we want the cancellation of illegitimate debt and not only an audition (which is the position of the global call that already exists).
From the working group preparing 22S and 13-14-15O in Madrid:
the proposal that the demo on the 13O would be an international one against debt
“We don’t owe! We won’t pay!”, No debemos, No pagamos
Global Actions against Debt and Austerity during the Global Week of Action against Debt and IFIs. This year coincides with the 25th anniversary of the death of Thomas Sankara, President of Burkina Faso, killed (among other issues) for opposing to payment of debt.
=) MA from Madrid will send the call from Madrid when ready.
debt platform, dry, madrilonia, have decided to go for the 13O as the day of demonstration against debt (comunicating by Meg in a telephone call)
