Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The problem is that there's no organised progressive movement in Europe.

But there is, in fact a number of them. Most notably the Altermondialists, itself an amalgam including previous networks. Problem is, their reach is still too narrow.

to build up support for this kind of movement, you need strong local backing and numbers.

to go supernational, communication defaults to english, and a glitch occurs between leaders and the grassroots they sprang from...

(this one of the best things about ET, imo, the common use of english to a surprisingly high level by so many to whom english is not mothertongue.)

my compliments (and appreciation) to all of you...
