We would like to invite you to participate in an global day of action on the 15th of May 2016, called by Nuit Debout in France. We will meet at the Fountains on the 15th of May at 12:00, with the participation of different local collectives, in order to show our rejection to a system based on competition and individualism and answer with solidarity, participatory democracy and collective action.

A popular meal, where we can share our food and ideas, will follow the meeting, and the rest of the program is yet to come. If you would like to collaborate and have a concrete proposal, please contact Marea Granate Bristol at: bristol@mareagranate.org

Here is a map of all the cities organising themselves worldwide on the same day:

INTERNATIONAL CALL BY #NUITDEBOUT
WE CALL FOR A #GLOBALDEBOUT DAY OF ACTION ON THE 15th OF MAY, 2016 
We call on people’s movements across the world to mobilise for justice and real democracy on the weekend of May 15th, 2016 for a #GLOBALDEBOUT. We invite you to come to Paris for an International Gathering of movements at Place de la Republic on May 7 and 8.
Today #46mars (April 15) is just two weeks after one million people mobilized in Paris and the movement Nuit Debout continues to grow. In numerous French and foreign cities, #Nuitdebout (Night on our Feet) is a light in the dark, it gives testimony to our hopes, dreams and common rebellions. Those who have taken the squares in the past and those who are taking them NOW: we know something is happening. 
The struggle for a better world is Global and without boarders, let’s construct together a global spring of resistance! Join to us on May 7th and 8th in Paris at Place de Republique to debate, to share our experiences and to begin to construct together common solutions. There we will strategise and prepare for an international action on MAY 15th (#76mars). On this date we will occupy, mobilise and take direct action together across the world.
Nuit Debout first aim is to create a space for the ‘convergence of struggles’. We hope this convergence will go beyond France and spread worldwide. There exist numerous links between social movements in all four corners of the world; from unemployment to the imposition of the financial markets, from the destruction of the environment to war and unacceptable inequality.
In response to a system based on competition and individualism, we answer with the solidarity, participatory democracy and collective action. Our differences are not a source of divisions, but rather our strength, as we complement each other struggles. We are neither listened nor represented by the current economic system. 
Together we retake public space and politics because politics is a matter of all of us. Now is not the moment retreat, but to come together for change.
We are the 99 % and we are here to reject the financial and political rule of the 1 % and their world. We are here to take back our cities, our places of work and our lives. 
On May 7th and 8th, let’s come together to Paris to the square of the Republic! 
On the day of May 15 we will rise up together for a global day of action.
#NuitDebout everywhere!
#GlobalDebout!
