« Let’s build another Europe : lessons and perspectives »
30th of November & 1st of December – 12 rue Cabanis, 75014 Paris

Mobilisations of October have been an important experience for our Network and those we work with (EuroMarchas, Belgian and European networks,...). Successes and limits of these mobilisations are rich in lessons.
More widely, must the adversity of the political and economical actual situation lead to rethink our future activities and actions ?
We propose to do this balance with other actors of the social movement present during EuroMarchas and Days of Actions in Brussels.
