Global Change Is Rising
People of more than 800 cities worldwide will participate in the Global Change action, which will take place October 15. On this day scheduled big demonstrations of protest in various parts of the world. According to the movement members, the protests will be entirely peaceful.
They do not have a single center, they do not have leaders, they do not have parties that organize them. But they have a strong desire for changes. Different people express their negative attitude to the situation that prevailed in the world today.
If I start to list all the reasons for this dissatisfaction, then you will need more than one hundred web pages.
“We denounce austerity policies because they increase inequalities. They are a direct attack on the different welfare systems and on the existing social rights won by previous struggles. These austerity policies favor the private economic and financial interests which are themselves responsible for the economic process that lead us to the current crisis.” say people on the website of Global Change.
One of the most interesting facts is that the big media pay a very little attention to this event. It's a bit strange, given the magnitude of this movement. A similar situation can be seen in the media coverage of the Occupy Wall Street actions. "Big media are the part of the current world system." say the protesters.
In this case, Global Change has very real and strong reasons to be dissatisfied with the existing system: “We must transform the models of democracy and re-appropriate politics through direct participation in all spheres of political economic and social life. The current model of representative democracy is exhausted. No one represents us!” shout the action members.
One of their slogans says: “Nothing to lose, everything to win!
At the moment, their participation in the Global Change confirmed almost all major cities in Europe, U.S., Latin America, Asia and other regions. Given the rapid growth of the movement, we can assume that by October 15, the number of participating countries will increase significantly.
