Tomorrow, the activist conference Selbstbestimmt und solidarisch! organized by Afrique-Europe-Interact, Konzeptwerk Neue Ökonomie and glokal, among others, will begin in Leipzig. Even though there are unfortunately no more free places now, it might be worth taking a look at the program. And we’ll try to document as much as possible and make it available online.
