Not much has changed of the fact that many of us are threatened by the price increases in our way of life. Whether it’s rising rents, food or energy prices – the costs of just securing a living continue to rise. Our incomes, on the other hand, only increase in small steps or even stagnate.
We are asked to economize, but anyone who has lived on a tight budget so far has hardly any opportunities to economize. Even those who have not previously been threatened or affected by poverty experience a loss of prosperity and — not infrequently — fear of social decline.
This climate of fear for one’s own future is exploited by right-wingers in order to gain power. We had to watch the elections in Italy with horror, but right-wing parties and organizations are also experiencing a hefty boost in Germany.
We do not allow the right to play us off against each other but we stand up for a solidary way out of the crises!
The alliance “Erlangen hat genug – solidarisch gegen die Krisen” is therefore calling for a demonstration on Saturday, November 5th at 2 p.m., starting from Hugenottenplatz (Erlangen). We go on the streets together with clear demands:
Erlangen has had enough – with solidarity through the crises!
We are in the middle of a social crisis. Food, rent and heating costs are increasing immeasurably. Many of us struggle to meet our basic needs. That must have an end! Therefore we demand:
– Energy and heating must be affordable!
– Put an end to the horrendous prices of food!
– An immediate rent freeze!
– Bus and train for everyone!
– Wages and welfare up!
– Excess profit tax: take responsibility for those profiting from the crisis!
We look forward to go on the streets together with you for a solidary way out of the crises . Bring your friends, colleagues and relatives with you so that we can show out loud: Erlangen has had enough!
