Re: <nettime> England leaves Europe

as they used to say in harlem: WORD

the European Continental Republic needs to happen fast and was greatly
inspired by Ulrike Guérot's political call -
if we want to make it a viable project we should start federating existing
paneuropean movements (blockupy, diem25, d1920, noborder networks etc)
toward a European Continental Movment (or smthg like that;)

on a more realistic note, i think the only chance to save the EU from the
abyss (Soros has already predicted its dissolution) is to turn the eurozone
into a federal, regional, metropolitan state.

best for the week ahead,
