Espacios autónomos en Europa (English)


Dear friends,

We inform you that during the first week of May 2006 the European Social
Forum will take place in Athens. At the same time the open assembly for the
creation of the “Autonomous Spaces” / Open Public Ephemeral Zone will use a
university space in the centre of Athens and will produce an ephemeral
autonomous zone that will try to bring together all the grassroots
anticapitalist, autonomous and antiauthoritarian collectives, groups and
movements. We will try all of us to co-create an open public space that will
give the opportunity to all the libertarian radical utopians, the
anarchists, the antiauthoritarians, the libertarian communists, the green
anarchists, the antisystemic Marxists, the squats, the social centers and
all anti-hierarchical collectives from any lineage of the modern libertarian
thinking -action to present their work, express their ideas , and come to
public dialogue with the other collectives and the global society. This is
an open invitation for all the creative political and cultural affinity
groups and personal initiatives to participate in the construction of the
zone and the formation of the social and political agenda. You can send your
propositions to take part in the general program of the festival until 15th
of March.

We would like to let you know that this congregation will give us the
opportunity to create an antiauthoritarian autonomous zone and express our
ideas in a friendly environment. It is also provided the ability to each
collective to organize and decorate its own space, prepare and present its
own lectures or documentary shows and participate to the general assemblies
and forums.

We announce below the thematic issues of the assemblies and the forums and
we wait from you the expansion and the enrichment of this catalogue with
your own propositions:

*City movements and Ecology
*International Movements and New Technologies
*Social Centers , Squatting
*Direct Action
*Sexism and Homophobia
*Libertarian , Anarchist and Antiauthoritarian Ontology
*Contemporary Every Day Life and Future Social and Cultural Movements
*General Assembly :
Autonomous - Anticapitalistic Space and Antiglobalization Movement

The whole procedure according to the preparations until now will take place
on five phases (more ideas can be organized and much more actions can take
place through the expression of initiative) :

a) Autonomous Spaces / An Open Public Ephemeral Zone / Athens 4-7 May 2006

Four days of open public dialogue, networking of information, lectures,
info-centres , books or pamphlets exhibition, live internet shows, film

shows and documentary video projections and open celebrative public

b) Action of Solidarity and Social awareness outside of Immigrant’s
Concentration Camp

c) Actions of Social awareness at the City Market and other Working spaces

d) Meetings, talking circles and workshops at the social centers of Athens

e) Total Freedom Street Parade / organized by Void Network

An open invitation from Void Network to all the anarcho-ravers, the
technival sound-systems, the psychedelic trancers, the space travelers to

built a global celebration of social awareness in the streets of Athens that
will send in all over world the message of the fight for Total Freedom

We believe that it would be very helpful any collective which would like to
take part in this festival to prepare for traveling, to prepare their
lectures, and to help with the publicity networking.

According to the economical difficulties of some collectives we can
understand that some of them they can not organize the traveling in Athens,
so we offer to them the opportunity to participate and express their ideas
through books or pamphlets exhibition that they can send to the Creative
Crew of the situation, or to appear in the situation through live internet
shows, film shows and documentary video projections

We look forward for any reply from you as soon as possible.

Thank you,

People from the open assembly for the creation of “Autonomous Spaces”
