At a time marked by various phenomena of class struggle around the world, the second Revolutionary Internationalist Summer Academy will provide an opportunity for internationalist convergence, reflection and debate with young students and workers from different European countries. From the Yellow Vest movement to the struggle for Catalonia’s independence, from the Algerian Spring against Bouteflika to the emergence of a new international wave of feminism, these five days of exchange offer the opportunity to take stock of the situation and discuss the tasks of all those who are engaged in the struggle against the capitalist system, the political regimes in its service and all forms of exploitation and oppression.

To this end, we have booked an entire campsite in a nature reserve in the heart of Aveyron in Southern France with numerous amenities: Rooms for 4 or 6 people with private bathrooms, all meals included, cultural and sporting activities, entertainment for children. All this is available at an income-based rate according to the principle of solidarity, which enables young people and precariously employed workers to participate.

Prices for 5 days including all meals (travel not included), with arrival in the afternoon/evening of July 3 and departure on July 8 in the morning/afternoon:

Children between 3 and 12 years: 80€.
Teenagers / Precariously employed (net income less than 700€ per month): 120€.
Monthly net income between 700€ and 1200€: 150€.
Monthly net income between 1200€ and 2000€: 200€.
Monthly net income over 2000€: 250€.
Solidarity price: 300€.

The complete program will be online soon.

A New Phase of the War in Ukraine

Russia’s war in Ukraine has entered its third month. Putin’s failure to win a quick victory, while NATO-armed Ukraine resists but cannot defeat the Russian invasion, has led to a stalemate — one that is deepening the international character of the conflict and thus the risk of escalation.
