The FEC announces the book “Change Europe: Political and Social Confluences for a Europe in Crisis”
The past five years of the “government of the Troika” have shown the necessity of a political and social convergence of the transformative forces of all of Europe. Faced with this neoliberal offensive, against the political hegemony of capitalist finance, the societal majority has a decidedly urgent need of coordinated reaction. We must react, definitively, as a majority against the anti-social, capitalist politics. We must react constructing a great social and political alliance to resist and combat capitalism and its political representatives. We must react to create an alternative, to Change Europe as a broad political and social confluence, solidary and plural.
This book intends to contribute to this necessity of popular reaction through critical analysis. In Change Europe, the political and social confluences needed to begin in reality a process of radical transformation are explored. Such would be a profound transformation that requires strategies of collective action and the recombination of the social struggle for the building of a Constitutional Alternative on a European and national scale.
Change Europe is the fruit of a collaboration between the Foundation for a Europe of the Citizens (FEC), Malabá Editions and the Atrapasueños Editors. This is not an “electoral” book, even though its publication coincides with the beginning of the 2014 electoral campaign. Inspiring social and political alliances, of European reach, with the capacity for real impact in European politics, is a long-term strategy, and the discussion about political change in Europe should not, cannot, be worn out in the electoral process.
