Invoking the spirit of 15M movement in Spain, #NuitDebout is now inviting people across the globe to join a #GlobalDebout on May 15!
We call for a #GlobalDebout day of action on may 15, 2016!
We call on peoples’ movements across the world to mobilize for justice and real democracy on May 15, 2016 for a #GLOBALDEBOUT. We invite you to come to Paris for an international gathering of movements at Place de la Republique on May 7 and 8.
Today #46mars (April 15) is just two weeks after one million people mobilized in Paris, and the Nuit Debout movement continues to grow. In numerous cities, both in France and abroad, #Nuitdebout (Night on our Feet) is a light in the dark, giving testimony to our hopes, dreams and common rebellions. Those who have taken the squares in the past and those who are taking them now: we know something is happening.
The struggle for a better world is global and without borders, let’s construct together a global spring of resistance! Join to us on May 7 and 8 in Paris at Place de la Republique to debate, to share our experiences and to begin to construct common solutions. There we will strategize and prepare for an International day of Action on May 15 (#76mars). On this date we will occupy, mobilize and take direct action together across the world.
Nuit Debout’s first aim is to create a space for the ‘convergence of struggles’. We hope this convergence will go beyond France and spread across the globe. There exist numerous links between social movements in all four corners of the world; from unemployment to the imposition of the financial markets, from the destruction of the environment to war and unacceptable inequality.
In response to a system based on competition and individualism, we answer with solidarity, participatory democracy and collective action. Our differences are not a source of divisions, but rather our strength, as we complement each other’s struggles. We are neither listened to, nor represented by the current economic system.
Together we retake public space and politics because politics is a matter of all of us. Now is not the moment retreat, but to come together for change.
We are the 99% and we are here to reject the financial and political rule of the 1% and their world. We are here to take back our cities, our places of work and our lives.
On May 7 and 8, let’s come together to Paris to the square of the Republic!
On the day of May 15 we will rise up together for a global day of action.
#NuitDebout everywhere! #GlobalDebout!
