We thank all those who helped organize the events in these cities, to everyone who helped with the spaces, translation, food or simply showed their hospitality. Also Thanks to those who attended the meetings, organized extra events and shared their local experiences! We hope to see you again and to hear from you soon.

News of great importance in order to create a truly global internationalism able to coordinate effective actions against the Masters and Powes. Courage, comrades, we expect your sections!
