Buongiorno LivornoLivornoItalyEuropeMunicipal oppositionBuongiorno Livorno was founded in November 2013 as a political association independent of traditional parties; strongly linked to the values of the left, it builds its policies through the confrontation with the citizens, starting from the territorial needs and aiming to involve the citizens in its concrete proposals of intervention. Per noi il collettivo conta sempre più del singolo individuo, perché pratichiamo una politica che supera il concetto di pura e semplice leadership. Creare Distretti economici della creatività e del riciclo, valorizzare e tutelare i beni comuni e il patrimonio pubblico sono solo alcuni punti fondamentali al cuore della nostra azione politica. La natura del nostro movimento vive al di fuori delle dinamiche dei partiti tradizionali: una posizione, la nostra, indispensabile a mettere al centro della politica l’interesse della comunità e il rispetto dei diritti fondamentali di tutti, accettando e promuovendo solo schieramenti che si basino su contenuti e obiettivi territoriali. Ciò non vuol dire che la nostra azione politica sia autarchica e autosufficiente, al contrario: BuongiornoLivorno è collegata alle tante esperienze di municipalismo che, in Italia e in Europa, stanno ottenendo risultati politici importanti. Lavoriamo al fianco di esperienze come quella di Napoli e Barcellona.http://buongiornolivorno.it@BuongiornoLivorhttps://www.facebook.com/BuongiornoLivorno/Lisa Olivierosegreteria@buongiornolivorno.it393206074487silvia.giuntinelli@gmail.comsilvia giuntinelli393494355521
Cambiamo Messina dal BassoMessina, SiciliaItalyEuropeMunicipal governmentCambiamo Messina dal Basso is a self organized citizens movement that supported Renato Accorinti as candidate in Messina’s municipal elections of June 2013. After the electoral win of June 2013 the movement kept growing. All the activists worked to write a political and ethical document, the “Intent Charter”. Now this document is undersigned from each new member of the movement. The Charter contains the values in which the activists believe their goals and the basic organization of the political entity. Cambiamo Messina dal Basso has maintained its autonomy in these five years. Indeed, we constantly discuss issues and organize common actions with the municipal administration, respecting each other’s autonomy, according to our role: mayor, city council, municipal administration and citizens movement. The citizens movement emerged as a platform made of hundreds of people that came from different backgrounds. That is the reason why our logo is rainbow-colored. We love our diversity and we know it is one of our strengths. Despite these differences, we have common goals. Our main aims are: the revitalization of the civic waterfront on which the port authority exercises its own jurisdiction; the recognition of equal opportunities; the commons; the active participation of citizens to the political life and the cultural change of people towards more open-minded and responsible behaviors. http://www.cambiamomessinadalbasso.it/@CMdBtwhttps://www.facebook.com/cmdbofficial/Federico Alagnafederico.alagna@gmail.com

Căși sociale ACUM!/ Social housing NOW!Cluj-NapocaRomaniaEuropeCountermunicipalist (platform working outside institutions)Started in 2016, Căși sociale ACUM!/Social Housing NOW! was run as a campaign by Foundation Desire. Today we aim to transform it into an engine of a movement for public housing and housing justice in Romania. Our social justice- and rights-based approach towards housing acknowledges the latter not only as a fundamental right, but also as a primordial need violated and unfulfilled in several cases not only in terms of adequacy of the house itself where people live, but also due to the character of the territory where this is placed (such as nearby polluted sites). Our intervention shows how socio-economic justice including housing justice might be promoted and how people’s empowerment might be served through the legal enforcement of socio-economic rights, and in particular housing rights and the right to be housed in a healthy environment. Our actions empower the most marginalized categories of the precariatized working class, including Roma to become a political actor struggling for an anti-racist politics of public housing as an instrument of securing people’s (spatial and social) belonging to the city and of imagining and building up a society based on the values of equality and solidarity.http://www.desire-ro.eu/Eniko Vinczedesire_cluj@yahoo.com

Decide RomaRomaItalyEuropeCountermunicipalist (platform working outside institutions)Decide Roma was born after the rally "Roma Non Si Vende" (Roma is not for sale), organized in early 2016, which aimed to block speculation in our city, strengthen self-managed spaces, promote a public debt audit of the City Hall and return the possibility of To decide on the citizens and citizens of Rome. Decide Rome is a collective project that seeks to reconquer politics from below and give the power to decide back to citizens. The confidence of the citizens in representative politics disappeared long ago and change will only be possible through direct participation and social struggle. Our programmatic proposal is the "Carta di Roma Comune", which was debated and drawn up in dozens of public assemblies. This Charter expresses the founding principles of a new way of including the meaning and role of the entire "public system". We can summarize them as the "urban commons". The only recipe for a system change is that of participation and decentralization of power. Corruption is always born when the government of the many substitutes the government of the few. A brave policy is the one that recognizes in citizens, beyond elections, the power to decide not only to decide who governs, but how they are governed.http://www.decideroma.com/@RomaComunehttps://www.facebook.com/DecideRoma/

Democratic Union PartyQamishliSyriaMiddle East and North AfricaMunicipal governmentRojava, the Kurdish-majority zone in northern Syria, is the location of a unique project in grassroots, participatory democracy. A landmass slightly larger than Belgium, in the midst of war, it is undergoing a profound social revolution that emphasises social and economic equality, religious tolerance, ethnic inclusion, collectivity combined with individual freedom, ecology, and a radical feminism. The political system of Rojava is based on a paradigm called Democratic Confederalism, articulated by imprisoned Kurdish leader Abdullah Öcalan. It is a system that does not call for a separate Kurdish state but seeks to employ self-rule to address the decades of state-sponsored genocide inflicted on the Kurds. In Rojava, 40-50 percent of the members of any civil society or governing body must be female with a women serving as co-chair in every executive or legislative office. Every member of the community can participate in decision-making as part their local “commune,” of 30-400 households. The board of each commune sends representatives to the Village Council, a body made up of 7-30 communes. In turn, the Village Council, sends elected representatives to the District People’s Council, which then sends delegates to the fourth level, the People’s Council of West Kurdistan (MGRK). The MGRK elects members to the Movement for a Democratic Society, or TEV-DEM, which coordinates decisions among all three cantons of Rojava. At each of the four levels there are citizens commissions on women, defense, economics, politics, civil society, justice, ideology and free society. Every level of the council system has a separate women’s council, formed by the Kongera Star, which organises trainings on women’s empowerment, and whose decisions take priority over all issues affecting women. As a result, feminist and anti-capitalist ideas, and the notion of an ecological life, are flourishing across the entire society, with theories developed through a new paradigm called Jineology – the woman’s science. https://pydrojava.net/english/@PYD_Rojavahttps://www.facebook.com/Pyd-rojava-133847666761347/

In particular they were clear that national political dogma and ideology was not relevant at a local level. ifF therefore developed ‘Ways of Working’ which defined core values and a methodology of cooperation. When it ran for office, ifF offered no manifesto, just a description of how it would operate in more participative way if elected. In the 2011 local election, turnout rose by 75% and IfF won 10/17 seats on the city council. It quickly rewrote the rule book, re-engineering the ways the council operated (creating a style of council meetings that allowed for local people to have their say and join in debates) and elevating the agenda and vision for the council.

Málaga AhoraMálagaSpainEuropeMunicipal oppositionMálaga Ahora it is not a political party (although it used this legal status to stand in the municipal elections of 2015), nor is it a collection of party acronyms or a pact between organizations. Málaga Ahora is a citizen initiative that aims to come together from democratic practices and common objectives, counting on the participation of individuals, as well as the different social, neighborhood, cultural and political actors of our city. This challenge requires the creation of new spaces of organization and social participation to intervene politically in non-traditional ways, so that institutional action reflects the true demands of citizens. Therefore, the institutional work of Málaga Ahora is only one of its axes, since our organization follows the path traced by the neighborhood, social and citizen movements that for decades have been claiming the right to a dignified, habitable and more egalitarian city. In the 2015 local elections we won 4 seats on the city council, becoming the third largest political force in Malaga. https://malagaahora.org/@mlgAHORAhttps://www.facebook.com/malagaahora/Málaga Ahorainfo@malagaahora.org

Movimiento Valparaíso CiudadanoValparaísoChileLatin America and the CaribbeanCountermunicipalist (platform working outside institutions)Movimiento Valparaíso Ciudadano (Valparaíso Citizen Movement) aims to build an empowered, conscious citizenry with the capacity for individual and collective action in the city of Valparaíso. It sees the Citizen Mayoralty of Jorge Sharpe and the citizen councilors as instruments to support its transformative goals. At the same time, Movimiento Valparaíso Ciudadano is independent of the city government, with its own agenda, which promotes the binding participation of citizens in making decisions that affect them. The Citizen Mayoralty was driven by a set of local political organizations and movements, including Movimiento Valparaíso Ciudadano. Its programme is centered on improving the life of residents by recovering the city's coast and relationship with the sea, defending individual and collective rights, within a value framework that gives dignity to its citizens, taking care of the environment and promoting relations of solidarity, collaboration, mutual respect and equity. The Citizen Mayoralty began with the primaries for the municipal elections in mid 2016 and was consolidated with the victory of Jorge Sharpe in October of the same year. Since taking office in December of 2016, the government has driven a local development strategy while promoting transformative participation of the territory. @ValpoCiudadanohttps://www.facebook.com/ValpoCiudadano/valparaisociudadano@gmail.com
Muitas pela Cidade que Queremos Belo Horizonte BrazilLatin America and the CaribbeanMunicipal oppositionLas Muitas pela Cidade que Queremos is a municipal and citizen movement that emerged in Belo Horizonte (BH) in 2015 - in the wake of movements and struggles that seek a fairer city - inspired by other municipal movements in the world, in Latin American experiences and in ways of organizing some traditional Brazilian communities. With the proposal to occupy the elections, independent activists and members of movements, collectives and parties gathered around a horizontal and collaborative process to construct a candidature. In the municipal elections of 2016, Muitas stood 12 candidates representing women, black people, indigenous peoples, youth, LGBTIQs, the struggle for the right to the city, for the culture, for the animals and the environment, the anticarceral policy and for the legalization of drugs. By deconstructing the personalist idea of politics, the collective campaign's motto was "vote for one, vote for all." In an election marked by the rejection of politics, the Muitas united around their proposal various voluntary activists who won through the streets and social media. Finally, the group won two seats on the Municipal Council of Belo Horizonte, with councilor Áurea Carolina being the most voted candidate in the history of the city.http://www.somosmuitas.com.br/@Somos_Muitashttps://www.facebook.com/asmuitasÁurea Carolina aureacarolinax@gmail.com +55 31 3472 9010robertoandres@gmail.comRoberto Andrés +55 31 995874857

Pravo na grad (Right to the city)ZagrebCroatiaEuropeNetworkPravo na grad (Right to the City) is an organisation engaged in advocacy and public campaigning against privatization and economic overexploitation of space, public and common goods, while promoting the need for citizens' participation in the management of public goods. Over the last ten years, the organization has undertaken a number of campaigns and protest actions raising the public awareness on these issues. What precedes these campaigns is Right to the city’s effort in building long lasting alliances with different civil society organizations as well as trade unions. Together with different organizations and initiatives we have led and have been a part of many different campaigns focusing on public goods, social and urban justice. Perhaps the best known examples are the struggles against the devastation of public space in Zagreb city center (We Won't Give Away Varsavska Street campaign), as well as the campaign against the destruction of Kamensko textile factory in the center of Zagreb, but also the support we provided to a local referendum campaign against golf resorts in Dubrovnik (Srđ is ours) or collaboration with initiatives Volim Pulu (I love Pula) concerned with preventing the commercialization of city’s coastline. In terms of the city of Zagreb, Right to the city extensively works on establishing relationships and building organizational capacities of grassroots initiatives in the city that fight for public and common resources in their surroundings.http://pravonagrad.orgIva Marčetićpravonagrad@pravonagrad.org385989936656Tomislav Domes385913462660

With this model project we want to think about new institutional arrangements that combine the democratic structures of self-managed structures with the wide reach of public housing and thereby overcome the limitations of both: The middleclass, social capital centered self-managed housing scene and the undemocratic and in neoliberal times also unaffordable municipal housing. The model project is based on our 100%-claims: ◾100% rental apartments, no private ownership ◾100% real affordability (which we define as affordable for recipients of social welfare) ◾100% long term (social housing in Germany is usually only regulated for a limited time) ◾100% participation (different from co-ops, no need to bring private capital). https://stadtvonunten.de/stadt-von-unten-selbstverwaltet-und-kommunal-city-from-below-self-managed-and-common/@stadtvonuntenhttps://www.facebook.com/stadtvonunten/info@stadtvonunten.de
