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.
Dozens of these gatherings are planned throughout the summer, with bike trips (even with boats) to alternative places, or against atomic energy, climate camps, disobedience actions against extractivist industry (coal, gas, oil, concrete, etc.), borders, nuclear power, weapon industries, but also with many meetings, bookfairs and conferences to imagine and put into action other ways of life, other societies, anti-capitalist, solidarity, cooperative, pacifist and respectful of all living things.
These struggles and gatherings are essential for European activists, in order to fight together, develop networks of struggle, and make a common front against those who try to enslave this world for their own interests, and thereby destroy it. So, if you feel like joining them, here is the non-exhaustive agenda of the European activist gatherings of summer 2022.
Don’t hesitate to complete the agenda in the comments if you know of interesting events, I will add them in the article.
Have a good summer of struggles !
