This Sunday is TOMA LAS CALLES! Retake the Streets! And protesters in Spain are encouraging international groups to join them in Europe-wide action, with rallies and marches of solidarity on 19th June.
There will be a gathering outside the Town Hall in Sheffield city centre from 18:00 on Sunday evening in support of the Spanish and Greek protestors, many of whom have been occupying their own city centres for more than a month, camping out on the streets, and with others joining them each evening to voice dissent against their governments’ programmes of banker bail-outs, public spending cuts and the creeping corporate take-over of their nations. Rallies are also set to take place in London, Manchester and Brighton (see below for details).
