At the end of the 1980's, the so called "monday protests" in Germany grew
and grew each week and led to the end of former GDR in 1990. Now the monday
protests are back. It began a little over a month ago in eastern germany: in
a couple of cities a few hundred people protested against the "HARTZ 4"
program and the "Agenda 2010" which are government plans that will have an
deep impact on workers and unemployed people. By Monday, August 23, over
100.000 people participatedand by Monday, September 6, protests were taking
place in over 200 cities in Germany, as well as solidarity rallies in Paris
and Vienna.

So, come and find out more about this sweeping movement. What do they want?
Can it work? Why did it work before? Could this tactic be used in the UK?
How would such a movement be initiated in the UK?
