    Report

    Member states of the European Union and Schengen Area have constructed almost 1000 km of walls, the equivalent of more than six times the total length of the Berlin Walls, since the nineties to prevent displaced people migrating into Europe. These physical walls are accompanied by even longer ‘maritime walls’, naval operations patrolling the Mediterranean, as well as ‘virtual walls’, border control systems that seek to stop people entering or even traveling within Europe, and control movement of population.

  3. Levantando muros

    Report

    Este informe revela que los estados miembros de la Unión Europea y el Espacio Schengen han alzado cerca de 1.000 km de muros, lo equivalente a más de seis Muros de Berlín, desde los años 90, con el objetivo de frenar la migración de personas desplazadas por la fuerza a Europa. Estos muros físicos van acompañados de los aún más largos “muros marítimos”, operaciones navales patrullando el mar Mediterráneo, así como los “muros virtuales”, sistemas de control fronterizo que buscan parar a las personas que intentan entrar en Europa, incluso aquellas que están viajando por el continente, y controlar el movimiento general de la población.

    Report

    Europe’s “refugee crisis” triggered a wave of solidarity actions by both civil society organisations and ordinary citizens. Their efforts were part of a wave of compassion, as people organised convoys to refugee reception centers, warmly greeted arrivals at train stations and lined highways to provide food and water to those making the journey from Syria and elsewhere. Just a few years later those same activists are treated as criminals and humanitarian search and rescue missions are criminalised.

    Report

    Durante décadas, comunidades afectadas de todo el mundo han opuesto resistencia a la forma de actuar de las em- presas transnacionales en sus territorios y lugares de trabajo, y documentando violaciones sistémicas de los derechos humanos y la trayectoria de impunidad empresarial con sus vidas y muertes. La impunidad de las grandes empresas está protegida por una ‘arquitectura de impunidad’ que legitima y legaliza sus operaciones. Esta arquitectura se ha establecido mediante acuerdos de libre comercio e inversión, la Organización Mundial del Comercio (OMC), las políticas de ajuste estructural del Fondo Monetario Internacional (FMI), el Banco Mundial y otros instrumentos financieros, así como la promoción implacable de las alianzas público-privadas (APP).

  17. Fair, Clean and Democratic Energy: mPOWER meets Municipalize Europe!

    06 Noviembre 2018 - Evento

    In a Europe governed in the interests of the few, where the far right is on the rise, towns and cities are building new ways to do politics and defend the common good from the bottom up. In Spain, 'cities of change' are combating speculation and defending the right to housing. In Italy, local governments are creating new legal mechanisms to protect the urban commons, and cities across Europe are taking energy and water delivery back into public hands after failed privatisations. Municipalism is transforming Europe from the bottom up.

    Around the world, millions of people depend on the cultivation of coca, opium poppy and cannabis for basic subsistence. The 1961 Convention introduced strict controls on the cultivation of these plants and banned centuries-old traditional medicinal, cultural and ceremonial uses. The 1988 Convention reinforced those provisions, obliging states to eradicate illicit cultivation and to impose criminal sanctions.
