Sunday, April 1st
From 10 a.m and all morning long, the spaces of Global Meeting are available for meetings and deepenings.

From 14.00 p.m – Happening - General meeting
We shall start off from a global reading of the “Italian anomaly”: mobilisations against the new US army base in Vicenza – as well as many other struggles in the name of the commons, the environment and territory, citizenship rights, against detention centres – show the renewed energy of social movements. The real autonomy of such routes puts an end to all kinds of hypocrisy and reopens an attitude of confrontation for all those who do not accept subordinating the development of conflicts to the logics of power and the work of institution.
