VIA22, an open collective created in Montreal-Quebec, is sending a call to create a monthly process of global actions, the 22nd of each month, starting on October 22nd.

The idea is to collectively express the need that our marches and demonstrations become spaces for sharing knowledge about alternatives, and raise collective consciousness. We want to support and connect initiatives around the world and contribute to the dialogue between global and local. Strength comes from creativity and unity!

People from Mexico, Spain, Mozambique, Senegal, Belarus, Croatia, England, Japan, Greece, El Salvador and Chile are already in contact with us, but we need to spread the word widely!

We are looking for people around the world that could be interested in being part of the collective coordination of VIA22Global, and people that would like to help building the web site.

Here is the link to our temporary site: www.via22.org

Hoping to hear from you, we send our support and solidarity!
