On the 15th of May 2011, millions of people started a process of social change, sending a clear message that we are not the property of politicians and bankers.
The political class and the economic powers behind them continue to ignore the message. They continue imposing poverty on the people and putting our lives at risk.
On the 12th of May, after a year of protest sweeping the globe, the ruling class digs in to maintain its power and wealth, we take back the streets and we demand:
1. Not a single euro more for bailing out banks. The bankers and speculators caused the crisis – make them pay for it.
2. Total transparency in the governance of the country, zero tolerance to corruption, and prosecution of those responsible for major economic crimes.
3. A society that guarantees the following: housing, work, culture, health care, free education, political participation and a fulfilled life. Our political and economic system places these things under attack.
4. Real Democracy NOW! Everyone’s voice, participation and welfare should be given equal importance in deciding how our society should be run.
On May 12th people from all over the world will take to the streets and squares. From America to Asia, from Africa to Europe, people are rising up to claim their rights and demand real democracy. Now it is time for all of us to join in a global non-violent protest.
It’s time for us to unite. It’s time for them to listen.
