Fearless Cities: International Municipalist Summit

Around the world, towns and cities are standing up to defend human rights, democracy and the common good. The Fearless Cities summit will allow municipalist movements to build global networks of solidarity and hope in the face of hate, walls and borders.

“In a world in which fear and insecurity are being twisted into hate, and inequalities, xenophobia and authoritarianism are on the rise, towns and cities are standing up to defend human rights, democracy and the common good.

Democracy was born at a local level, and that’s where we can win it back.

Now is the time to demonstrate the potential of towns and cities to resist hate and to spur democratic transformation across the world. In the face of hate, walls, and borders, we will build global networks of solidarity and hope among city halls and citizens.

See you in Barcelona from 9-11 of June for Fearless Cities, the international municipalist summit, organized by Barcelona en Comú.”
