Back by popular demand, here is a round up of activists events, gatherings, camps and meetings happening around Europe this summer.

A round up of events and gatherings planned around Europe to keep you busy in summer 2010. From climate camps (lots of them!) to Queeruption, anti-nuclear action to a No Border camp, there’s lots to get stuck into – wherever you are.
Social centres, squats, infoshops, free parties, protest camps, hacklabs and convergence centres… Autonomous spaces come in many forms and have often served as important bases of resistance for popular movements and struggles. In this newsletter we take a closer look at social centres around Europe, examining some of their potential strengths and weaknesses as projects for social change and looking at current struggles around protecting autonomous spaces.
Over the past few years Climate Action Camps have sprung up around Europe and around the world. Taking inspiration from the 2006 UK Camp for Climate Action, the camps tend to bring together the aims education, sustainable living, direct action and movement building. This summer EYFA got involved with the first Dutch-Belgian Climate Action Camp and this newsletter is a look back on it.
With the prospect of catastrophic climate change looming ahead in the not-so-distant future and free-market financial capitalism in big trouble, new markets in carbon have become every big businessman’s new best friend. The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) will hold their 15th annual Conference of the Parties (COP15) in Copenhagen in December where they will negotiate the treaty to follow the Kyoto Protocol, so we’re dedicating this newsletter to understanding their new money-making bag of tricks.
From July 8-10 another G8 summit is planned in Italy. Over the last months a multitude of initiatives have popped up that plan to counter the upcoming summit and there were a range of successful protests against the G8 preparatory ministers’ meetings. In this newsletter we try to summarize the latest developments and look ahead with the question on how to support our fellow activists in Italy.
As the financial crisis continues, more and more big businesses have an ‘excuse’ to cut corners by hiring underpaid labour, or laying off workers without honouring their basic rights. In reality, rather than being a setback for the big companies, the crisis seems to be speeding up the wheels of corporate capitalism by offering an increasingly consumerist society cheaper goods in exchange for consumers turning a blind eye to ethical standards. With frustrated workers all over Europe marching in solidarity on May 1st, we introduce our May newsletter.
With the prospect of catastrophic climate change looming ahead in the not-so-distant future and free-market financial capitalism in big trouble, new markets in carbon have become every big businessman’s new best friend.
A round up of important political events taking place in 2009 from the NATO Summit in Strasbourg to No Borders Camps in Calais and Bulgaria, and the COP15 in Copenhagen in December.
The 2008-2009 winter has proved a harsh one for peace and social justice movements worldwide. We saw the brutal murder of Alexandros Grigoro-poulos onthe 6th of December and war breaking out again in the Gaza strip. These two events ignited outrage everywhere and moved people in very different contexts to take to the streets. A small overview of mass expressions of discontent around Europe.
On January 19th 2009 the Russian activist and human rights community suffered the loss of lawyer Stanislav “Stas” Markelov and critical journalist Anastasia “Skat” Baburova. They were both murdered in cold blood in the center of Moscow. This assassination received wide coverage in both Russian and international press, however almost all of it focused on Markelov’s contribution to human rights advocacy, not to his and Anastasia’s incredibly significant activities and involvement in the activist community.
