TAKING THE STREETS, BREAKING THE SILENCE
* CALL FOR Blockades: Tuesday 13: Blockades against the meeting of European Ministers of Education.
On Tuesday 13 March, European education ministers have scheduled a meeting to continue preparations to destroy European education. Commodified and sold to the highest bidder. However, it will not be easy. Everyone is invited to come and participate in peaceful blockades to try and prevent and disrupt the meeting.
Anyone interested in participating in the blockade should come with your affinity group to the convergence center of the counter summit: Faculty of Philosophy at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid (to get there: http://bolognaburnsmadrid. wordpress.com / hosting /), at 8:00 o’clock in the morning of Tuesday 13.
It is advisable to go days before the appointment to the focal point of the counter-summit to receive workshop affinity groups and legal (the workshop is offered every day from 15h to 17h). So we’ll be better prepared and better coordinated. Arriving at the Faculty of Philosophy, stop by the Information Point located in the Hall.
see you at the blockades!

A New Website for the Counter Summit of European Education Ministers has been Born.
On the 13th April an EU education ministers’ summit will take place in Madrid, due to the Spanish turn at the EU presidency.
In response to this summit the Platform Bolonia Fucking Up Group, formed by Students Assemblies, associations, collective groups, student unions etc, is organizing a counter summit between the 8th and 14th of April.
We call students and people both in the Spanish State and internationally to join us in Madrid on these days to fight neoliberal reforms from the streets and hold workshop discussions about the university we currently have and the universities we would like to have.
As well as accomodation for all participants, we are organizing international assemblies in which to continue building a European network, a demonstration on the 12th with the motto “We won’t Let Education Pay for Capitalist Europe. Don’t Let them Make Decisions for You, Against the European Union’s Ministers Summit”, and more.
If you have questions, would like to organize a workshop or want to come, CONTACT US so that we know when you are arriving and how many of you there will be!
Spread the word,
La lucha es el único cámino!

From 8th to 14th of April, it will take place in Madrid an European
education ministers summit on the ocassion of the spanish presidence
of the European Union. So we want that in the Spanish State, as in
Wien, that the students voice be heard.We will go there to shout them
that we reject their university system, we will go to set out a democratic
and participatory alternative to oppose the european corporativism that
act in the service of neoliberalism.
The last year was a year full of struggles in the Spanish State against
the las reform in the way of the Bologna Process. This year we have
set in Madrid a collectives platform to organize a counter-summit to
oppose the Bologna Follow-up Group, the group evaluates the
implementation of the Bologna process in each country, which we’ve
called Bologna Fucking up Group. This platform coordinates students
assambles and other students organization which fight against the
commodification of the University.
The students from all around the Spanish State will come to Madrid for
the counter-summit. From the Bologna Fucking up Group we make an
international call to all stundents and activists which oppose to the
Bologna Process and want to set out a real alternative. Their false
Union in the way of the interest of a few can’t be compared with our
nion which links up through the solidarity of the struggles. We gather
in Wien, let’s gather in Madrid too.
IN APRIL THE STRUGGLE CONTINUES IN MADRID!!!
