Europaweit auf die Straße gehen – Once again take the streets – Todas las calles y plazas de España y Europa

Nein! zu Euro-Pakt und neoliberaler Wirtschaftsregierung
am 19. Juni 17 Uhrt vor dem Bundeskanzleramt

Für den 19. Juni rufen wir im Rahmen des auf der Puerta del Sol in Madrid beschlossenen Aktionstags zu europaweiten Protesten gegen die von der EU betriebene Kürzungspolitik und neoliberale Umstrukturierungen auf. Die Proteste richten sich gegen die Abwälzung der Krise auf die, die am wenigsten besitzen und am wenigsten Verantwortung für die Entstehung tragen. Gegen Kürzungen im öffentlichen Dienst, Flexibilisierung und Prekarisierung von Arbeitsplätzen, Erhöhung des Renteneintrittsalters und der indirekten Steuern sowie Kürzungen im Bildungs- und Gesundheitsbereich wie es der Euro-Pakt vorsieht.
Neben dem bereits verabschiedeten Euro-Pakt soll am 24. Juni beim Treffen der Staats- und Regierungschefs in Brüssel ein Paket mit Beschlüssen zur economic-governance verabschiedet werden. Bei diesem Paket handelt es sich um eine weitere Verschärfung dessen, was auf EU-Ebene bereits seit langem als eine Koordinierung der Wirtschafts- und Sozialpolitiken betrieben wird. Die Maßnahmen der  deutschen Agenda 2010 hatten ihre Blaupause in diesem Prozess auf europäischer Ebene. Jetzt sollen, aufbauend auf dem, was gerade in Griechenland und einigen anderen EU-Staaten passiert, die dort beschlossenen Maßnahmen für die einzelnen Mitgliedsstaaten noch verbindlicher geregelt werden, was einen weiteren gravierenden Schritt hin zu noch mehr Demokratie- und Sozialabbau darstellt.

Die Aktion wird bisher unterstützt von:
Democracia Real Ya Berlin
Real Democracy Now Berlin/GR
Attac Berlin

Der Aufruf von der Puerta del Sol aus Madrid (auf Englisch und Spanisch):


19th June, hour: 19:00.

NO TO THE EURO PACT: We are not goods in the hands of politicians and

The EURO PACT: New attack on democracy ONCE AGAIN.

ONCE AGAIN, the EU leaders endorse a policy misleading the public to the
benefit of large financial corporations, instead of defending the citizens.

On 27th June, all European governments, including that of Spain, will
sign in Brussels a major socioeconomic daylight robbery of an
international scope: the so-called Euro Pact, by which the politicians
of the European Union agree to legislate the orders of the International
Monetary Fund (IMF), European Central Bank (ECB) and the World Bank (WB).

Failure to comply with these orders means, the rating agencies that have
led Greece, Ireland and Portugal to the ruins (Moody's, Standard &
Poor's, and Fitch) will resume their attacks.

What do they sign when they ratify the Euro Pact?

- The public sector salaries should be consistent with the
competitiveness of the private sector, WHICH MEANS: further cuts in the
public sector as it must offer the same benefits as the private sector´s
derisory wages and increasing working hours. Including a sharp cut in
the numbers of public employees.

- Therefore all countries should adjust their laws to the dictates of
the banks, WHICH MEANS governments are ONCE AGAIN not legislating for
the protection and interests of citizens but in the favour of large
banking corporations and the markets.

- The retirement age will be delayed in all the countries in accordance
with life expectancy.

- Enhancing competitiveness: linking wages to productivity, just like
what has already been done in Spain with the latest labour reform which
calls for more flexible redundancy laws, more flexible labour agreements
and more flexible contracts, thus endangering the current system of
collective negotiation of labour laws.

- To foster cheap lay-offs and Temporary Employment Agencies (TEA). The
banks will lower the financial strains to encourage the hiring of
workers, and in doing so will demolish the Social Security system and
will be introducing the figure of "the perpetual intern and the
perpetual precarious worker”.

- The freezing of all pensions.

- Reduction of social benefits.

- Reduction of the social protection systems, worsening the Social
Security system.

- Reduction of spending on education, resulting in poorer results, which
are conditions that favour and promote its ultimate privatisation.

- Increased direct and indirect taxes for citizens, small and medium
businesses and penalties for not complying with the payment of these
taxes through fines, interest, fees, etc.

- Changes to our constitution and that of the signatory countries with
the aim of "adjusting the economy within the parameters of the IMF, ECB
and World Bank” resulting in the loss of sovereignty of the people.

ONCE AGAIN, governments do not use political power to legislate and to
stop the provokers of the crisis and international banks and large hedge
funds, for example, stepping in against financial corporations. Instead,
with the signing of the Pact of the Euro scheduled for June 27, will
strengthen the large financial corporations and adopt policies that are
of interest to banks and large European companies. As if we hadn´t had
enough, all governments independently of their political colour, will
sign this agreement to commit to large financial corporations and thus,
as ever, sacrifice the citizens ONCE AGAIN, enabling the financiers to
continue defrauding the world using financial products that are as
sophisticated as they are risky and fraudulent, and permitting bank usury.

Using the deception that to deal with the debt crisis that grips Europe,
increasing the competitiveness of national economies can only be
achieved by reducing labour costs ... ONCE AGAIN.

Still no mention of intervention in tax havens where the great fortunes
rest or making laws against tax evasion. Still no talk of taxing
financial transactions, regulating rating agencies, etc. Still no
mention of measures against unemployment and in favour of social welfare.

Still there is no consideration for a public and independent audit of
the public debt in order to enable citizens to know what the debt really
is and what part of it actually corresponds to the banks and private
equity funds which according to the data we have constitutes most of the

ONCE AGAIN, we are served the impoverishment of society on a platter in
benefit of expanding the great fortunes and accentuating the social divide.

In this way, the historical record of the profits of large financial
corporations are ONCE AGAINenlarged even more, the record high salaries
of CEOs and executives will increase even more, and thus we reach record
levels of poverty and unemployment.

The difficulty of accessing this information is due to the lack of
political transparency and the fear that ALL OF EUROPE will TAKE THE STREET.
