(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #233 - Stuttgart Appeal: Against the great useless projects (fr, pt) [machine translation]

Date Sun, 19 Jan 2014 10:14:10 +0200

In terms of convergence that mobilize and occupy a certain media space include that against the Great and imposed unnecessary projects. A third summit was held this summer in Stuttgart, together with a call to action on December 8 across Europe. ---- After Val de Suze and Notre-Dame-des-Landes, Stuttgart hosted a third forum saw converge alongside founders (No Tav and NDDL especially), many other community[1]. Great opportunities to build collective responses and transnational networks (for the energy transition, against the green and finance-capitalism, grabbing resources or repression), but these forums have political boundaries. You should see as crucibles challenge.

Movement honored

The "K21" movement took the opportunity to reinforce the space of a few days, as is the principle of these forums, and led the 300 participants in the occupation of the former railway station, then a manifestation of undocumented migrants. The movement opposes indeed the project "Stuttgart 21" (called S21) of new railway station dating from 1994, which will cost EUR 7 billion and that the Merkel government persists against all odds despite opposition tenacious.

After the forum

The titles of the lectures and workshops demonstrate the relevance of convergence against the Great useless projects (GPI) and taxed: analysis and exchange of experiences, expertise against complementarity produced by movements, especially capacity building challenge systemic capitalist choice and ideology planners (speed, networking, works great for growth). On this last point, the participants highlighted the threat of a new kind of financial arrangements. After public-private partnerships, bond financing through the issue of shares that may be acquired pension funds, insurance companies, banks. Fixtures acclaimed by the European Investment Bank and the European Commission, which will hide the debt while putting states and communities under the control of new creditors. The final resolution of the forum denounces the creation of a financial bubble linked to major public works.

Besides this very interesting contribution among others, the forum has also taken positions that have been debated. When writing the final resolution, there has emerged visions a little bit legalistic, and the questionable proposal to formalize a network of "experts" for a technical and specialized support. A permanent structure in the service of collective coordination is justified, although other collectives such as the anti-shale gas will be refused to avoid centralization of the decision, but the notion of "experts" has raised eyebrows.

Anyway, a date simultaneous action has been set for December 8, 2013, which many collective have already taken. In the Paris region, the network between the various es projects around Paris (Costif [ 2 ]) provide a great weekend of mobilization, in conjunction with the collective support Notre-Dame-des-Landes. We can not detail here but we must expect many initiatives of anti-GPI group.
