Here you can read the Peoples debate about the state of the nation summary

You couldn’t make it? Unable to attend but still interested in the debate? Even if you were there, do you want to review what was said? A full summary, topic by topic, is posted in this blog. It covers all the speakers and also the public participation on the debate which took place on 29th and 30th June at SOL. On top of that there is also photographs and videos from both days.


During these days more that one thousand people have attended the Peoples debate regarding the state of the nation at SOL. Their aim was to participate in their own debate. Nearly 60.000 people more have been linked by streamming. We do want to thank all of you for making this particular initiative possible. We have made our point: we have a lot to say and we want the people to listen to us.

As it is said on the debates press release “…there is a long list of real problems which demand urgent attention by profesional politicians. To name a few: unemployment, deregulation of industrial and labour relations, and cuts in funding. Also its very important to consider the position of some collectives –women and inmigrants– whose rights had been affected before we started to suffer this massive crisis. We do not think its necessary to privatize our local services and councils; by no means this will solve the problems created by the greediness of the financial institutions…”

Thank you very much for making this happen!!!
