European conference against Austerity, 1 October 2011 and Study day in London, Sept. 30th, The public debt’s trap : is there a (democratic) way out?
London, UK
1 October 2011

There is an alternative.

This crisis is not our crisis. We should refuse to pay their debt. Together across Europe, we must take action to resist these attacks and to defend our public services and jobs. And together, we must organise for a society which meets the needs of people and the planet, not private profit.

Join us in London on Saturday 1st October 2011

Delegations and representatives welcome from trade-unions, social movements and progressive organisations from across Europe.

Conference initiated by the Coalition of Resistance
