EG Newsletter December 2019

Dear comrades and colleagues of the European Group

Welcome to the December edition of the EG newsletter! We are sure you agree this has been an excitingand pivotal year for the European Group – we have grown significantly in strength and numbers and welcomed more people than ever to this year’s annual conference in Barcelona. Importantly, we focussed our progression on activist inclusion and were pleased to host people working at the frontline of Catalan resistance, amongst many other pressing issues including the worrying growth of fascism and right-wing political agendas.
As you will see from this month, we have carried on addressing some of these in relation to ongoing repression in Catalonia, escalating unrest in Chile and in critical approaches to prisons. We also welcome some exciting new conferences, and we are looking forward to the 2020 conference with our fantastic colleagues in Torino/Turin.
A number of us working at Universities have also been on strike (including Vicky, hence the late edition!) and we have also appreciated support from EG members from across waters.
Lastly, we would like to thank everyone for their unwavering support and various forms of contribution to the Group throughout 2019 – there are no doubt many uphill struggles in store with 2020, so it is great that we are entering them as a collective.
Enjoy the rest of 2019, and best wishes to all for 2020.

In solidarity
Vicky, Dani and Katja

EG Newsletter October 2019

Welcome to the October edition of the EG newsletter! As the first year as co-ordinators comes to an end, we reflect on what the Group has done in the past 12 months and where we are headed as the year progresses.

It almost goes without saying that we are collectively facing global challenges on a serious and significant scale. Climate catastrophe, increased political repression and the rise of the far right make it difficult to keep positive. It is this time that solidarity and collegiality are integral to our campaigns and response. We very much felt this at the 47th Annual conference held in Can Batlló from 4th-6th September. Having centralised activism and critical academia in the venue and the programme, the conference truly ignited a sense of mutual support and comradeship. The insight from panels and presenters was phenomenal and a true testament to the efforts and expertise of those attending. With more than 170 delegates from countries ranging from Brazil to Denmark and New Zealand to Senegal, it was global in content, reach and critical engagement. Through this lens, we felt able to connect many of the local struggles faced in our communities with the global nature of increased repression. We are so thankful to our friends in Barcelona for hosting us, and to Dani and Ale for ensuring the days (and nights) ran so smoothly. […]
