Agora99 - One step forward in two directions

Final Declaration

From the 2th to the 4th of November, hundreds of people gathered in Madrid to exchange their experiences of struggles against austerity and for  building common proposals to create a different Europe based on real participative democracy. The decision to start the discussion between movements, people, groups and assemblies from different countries of Europe was taken after the mobilization of Blockupy Frankfurt in May 2012. We chose to meet in Madrid because the experience of the 15M has been inspiring as a new model of social practice which has an open and involving process of decentralized democracy. The meeting has been articulated on three axes which are: Democracy, Rights, and Debts. We pointed out that those topics are the main terrains of mobilzation that keep us together and unite our perspectives of transformation. One pillar of the meeting has been, as well, the democratization of communication tools which are inclusive and in which everyone can partecipate with the aim of creating a narrative from below which is independent of mainstream media. We state that this meeting is just a starting point for building a process of networking, and to give a common framework through our collective intelligence and our local practices and struggles.
