Since decades, numerous activist gatherings are organised across Europe during spring et summer, allowing meetings, exchanges between many activists, organizations and European networks, but also to act, through rallies, demonstrations, civil disobedience and direct actions in order to fight against the capitalist system, extractivist industries, social and environmental inequalities.
In spite of covid-19’s syndemia, and although in smaller numbers compared to previous years, dozens of these gatherings are planned throughout the summer of 2021, with bike trips to alternative places, climate camps, actions of civil disobedience against extractivist industry (coal, gas, oil, concrete, etc.), borders, nuclear power and weapons, but also with many gatherings in order to imagine and put into action other ways of life, other societies, anti-capitalists, solidary, cooperative, pacifist and respectful of all living things.
Here is the non-exhaustive agenda of these European gatherings. Other dates will be added in the next few weeks once they are made public, notably those of climate camps and actions planned in Germany, Switzerland, Czech Republic and France.
Feel free to add information in the comments if you know of any interesting events, I will add them to the article.
Have a good summer of struggle!
