May 30th to June 1st 2013
Blockupy is back: In May 2012, activists gathered in the banking area of Frankfurt to protest against the austerity politics of the German government and the Troika (EU, ECB, IMF). From May 30th to June 1st 2013 we will return for European action days in the heart of the European authoritarian crisis regime in Frankfurt/Main.
At the headquarters of the European Central Bank (ECB) we will send a powerful signal of solidarity with all those affected by the current politics of austerity and cuts.
As a symbol of struggle against austerity rule we will organise mass blockades of the ECB in Frankfurt on May 31st. We will move on to actions in a “second wave” in the late morning to other protagonists of the crisis, such as the Deutsche Bank. Our aim on May 31st is to visibly disturb the usual business proceedings of the ECB as well as other protagonists of the crisis regime.
On June 1st, the European action day, we call for a large international demonstration, together with many thousands of people from all over Europe.
The action camp at Rebstock will serve as a political and social meeting point for Blockupy. On Thursday, May 30th, we, activists and affinity groups, will gather there and prepare the actions together.
