International Day of Action: Weds 14th November

Gneral strike across Europe

What´s going on at the 14th of November? There is a call for a General Strike in several countries and the security services gave a foretaste in the last weeks what they think about it. The radical left in Europe has only one month left to consider something how to operate in this day also in the countries where no general strike takes place.

The European Federation of Trade Unions calls for the 14th of Noveber for a day of solidarity and action http://www.etuc.org/a/10439

The unions in Portugal, Spain and Greece announce now a general strike for this day. There is also a discussion in Italy, France and Belgium about strikes.

On the 15th of September thousands of people protested against the reduction policy of the Portuguese government. The police protected the parliament in Lisbon. Stones where thrown and there were arrests.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZJ3dwDatTAc

Also on the 29th of September, the protesters in Madrid had enough after they were beaten up for several days at peaceful protests in front of the Congreso . They fought back against the feared intervention units of the Policia Nacional.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4pXUah6ZNC8

In the middle of October there were student protests in various Italian cities, like here at 13/10 in Venice. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BhJ03FN7EXI

On the 12th of October there were clashes in Bilbao between antifascists and the basque police, who protected a nazi demonstration.


On the 18th of October the well known image of Athens. The police protects the parliament from an outraged crowd and the general strike ended once time again with teargas. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3tXXaRaeUt4

In Europe the people have enough of the politics of the oppressors, the resistance is forming itself regardless about identities. When on the 14th of November striking workers and employees, pensioners, students and autonomous in Lisbon, Madrid and Athens will march in front of the parliaments of their so called democracies, there will be injuries and arrests. We shouldn´t leave the people there alone but show them that also in the countries which are the winners of the crisis the policy of the EU has enemies. Because of this we want to take the call of the European Federation of Trade Unions literally.

About the role of the unions and the sense of strikes also others have made up some thoughts:

We call out everyone to hand over their anger to those responsible for all this misery.

Let us go together into action against all European police forces on N14!
