After a successful Manila seminar, 10 organisations sponsor a third school

The IIRE-Manila made a huge step forward in its second Global Justice School in August, with 22 attendees discussing context, movements and on alternative organizing for change.

However, financial support remains needed to help participants to travel to Manila.

Il s’agissait d’une école de formation de trois semaines organisée par l’IIRE de Manille.

L'Europe de l'Est à l'épreuve des crises de système

Par Catherine Samary

La construction européenne était porteuse d'aspirations populaires à un continent résistant aux politiques anti-sociales tout en étant ouvert sur le monde : selon une logique démocratique, sociale, écologique et solidaire, radicalement à l'opposé de ce qui se réalise...
