Nov 10th, 2017

In the beginning of October about 100 people – all of them activists, campaigners or organizers in left parties, social movements and trade unions in Europe and the US followed an invitation of Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung to Madrid.

Five days of intense workshops, panel discussions, lectures and debates followed, as well as a colorful and powerful demonstration for housing rights in Madrid and long talks. The Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung had convened political partners and young activists from 16 countries to discuss the common and differing challenges of left actors in Europe and to learn from each other.

In addition, the Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung used the opportunity to officially open its newest liaison office in Madrid.
