HOW EUROPE'S SOCIAL MOVEMENTS CONVERGED IN AMSTERDAM TO PLAN 2014 #EUINCRISIS
Originally published by Transnational Institute

The Transnational Institute hosted in Amsterdam a European strategy meeting in October which brought together different European social movements on the front lines of resistance against the neoliberal E.U. austerity regime.

Austerity, privatization and attacks on social rights, imposed by the European Commission, have become a reality for people across Europe. While there have been many impressive struggles at the national level - especially in Southern Europe - European coordination is still weak apart from sporadic days of joint action.

In recent years European social movements have organized numerous meetings to analyze the situation. However, it also became clear that European social movements required a common strategy. Following the results of the E.U. economic governance assembly organized in the Alter Summit in Greece in June, the Amsterdam strategy meeting was called to coordinate European struggles against the Troika's imposition of neoliberal policies under the new E.U. economic governance regime.

Watertown Residents Break Silence about April 19th Lockdown
Watertown-Forum-on-April-Lockdown-Photo-by-E.-Mackintosh.jpgReposted from Cradle of Liberty.

On Thursday, November 14th at 6:30pm, close to 30 Watertown residents and legal experts gathered at the Watertown Free Public Library to discuss the police lock-down and manhunt of April 19th, 2013. Three days after the marathon bombing which killed three and injured 264, police engaged bombing suspects, brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, in a shootout in Watertown just after midnight. Tamerlan died in the firefight, but his wounded brother escaped in a Sports Utility Vehicle before disappearing on foot. Governor Deval Patrick enacted a “shelter in place” order for all of Boston, Belmont, Brookline, Cambridge, Newton, Waltham, and Watertown, the MBTA shut down, and police departments and military units from around Massachusetts executed an unprecedented general lockdown of the greater Boston area. 9000 police officers and soldiers occupied Watertown. They created a twenty-block cordon, and armed with heavy military equipment, searched door to door. The lockdown lasted into the evening.
