Members of Beyond Europe (Cologne and Thessaloniki) will participate this weekend at an interesting seminar in Rome. The seminar is part of the mobilization against the E.U. summit on Youth-unemployment in Turin on the 11th July. Here the announcement from the comrades from dinamopress.it who invited us:
The meeting No jobs Let’s Act will take place in Rome on 6-7-8of june. On the first day there will be a discussion about “Manifesto per un’Europa egualitaria” with Karl Heinz Roth (coauthor) and Sergio Bologna and at 6 p.m. a round table about “European Income, Self-Organization and Mutualism”
The crisis has completely changed the face of Europe. After the dismantling of welfare state and social rights through the debt system, and the reduction of wages to the bone, the neoliberal governance is restarting the process of accumulation and imposing a new government of the European workforce. The recent statement of Chancellor Angela Merkel “The E.U. is not a social Union” clearly confirms, one more time, the hostility to tie work and welfare, mobility and social guarantees, valorisation of migrants’ skills and fair long-term wages. The internal borders have multiplied within the Union, creating new hierarchies of production based on citizenship and fostering a fierce precariousness as “solution” to young unemployment. In this context, it is worth to discuss about European basic income as one of the concrete possibility to break those hierarchies and to refuse precariousness; and, at the same time, to figure out how to strengthen a common ground among those experiences that create new kind of production based on mutualism, self-organization, regeneration and common work.
