Evaluation of altersummit Athens 7-9 June 2013


The Altersummit in Athens was not a very successful event and it has remained extremely isolated. Approximately one thousand people were present (half as much as the participants at the Firenze 10 +10 event) in the Velodrome of the Athens Olympic site. Greek organizers originally expected five thousand participants, but even at the Saturday’s big demo only 1350 people showed up. In particular – the Greeks stayed away from the Altersummit in a big number, which phenomenon should be thoroughly analyzed. One of the reasons for the low Greek participation might have been the fragmentation of the Left, so the political forces were unable to act together.
