Between the 26th and 28th of January 2013 will be held in Santiago, Chile, the EU-CELAC summit. In the same framework will be the CELAC meeting in which the Government of Chile will provide the leading of the regional block to the Government of Cuba.

The participating governments have decided to put as main theme of the meetings in Santiago the investments, under the title "Alliance for Sustainable Development : Promoting Investments of Social and Environmental Quality".

We have coordinated ourselves with the social, political and trade union organizations that we have been involved with in previous people’s summits and in multiple social forums, so that alongside the offical meetins, in a Summit of the Peoples, the demands and proposals of the mobilized peoples fighting neoliberal policies that seek to annihilate their rights in both regions, may be heard.

We call on all social, popular and political movements of Chile and of both continents to join the People’s Summit of Latin America, the Caribbean and Europe in January 2013 in Santiago of Chile, so that the right demands can be heard and their fights and resistances to unjust policies that are imposed to them can find a place for the construction of alternatives.

The People’s Summit of Latin America, the Caribbean and Europe for Social Justice, International Solidarity and Defense of Common Goods will take place in the midst of a global economic and financial crisis without precedent since the thirties of the last century, and those sectors that generated it and became rich intend to charge it to the peoples, imposing them some tremendous social and democratic regressions. The policies of "austerity", also now in the Eurozone, as well as the political developments in Latin America and the rest of the world require a unitary response of our peoples and a radically alternative exit to the renewal and the strengthening of the current neoliberal model. This historic moment also requires to restate thoroughly the relations between both continents.

The People’s Summit of Santiago is a Summit of the Peoples of Latin America, the Caribbean and Europe for Social Justice, International Solidarity and Defense of our Commons. It is an important opportunity to question the different dimensions of the crisis and the governmental attempts to use the European investments in Latin America as a way out of it, in the exact moment in which our peoples are rebelling against the extractive, inequitable and predatory model. We need to assess the effects of such investments and more widely of the Free Trade Agreements (FTA), especially for its predator character of the social rights, the environment and working conditions, and for worsening the tremendous social inequality that devastates our societies. The peoples of Latin America, the Caribbean and Europe say no to these FTAs, we demand that are renegotiated those in force and to stop the negotiation or ratification of the others, until the peoples are properly consulted about the type of relations bi-continental that they want to establish to serve their interests, and not those of the investors and multinational companies.

The undersigned organizations call to build a new kind of relation between the Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, based on equality, decolonization, the primacy of the rights of citizenship instead of the profits of multinational corporations, and the respect to the sovereignty and the rights of the nations. We do not accept that the crisis triggered by the multinational financial system serves to promote social regressions to the detriment of the rights and the welfare of the peoples. In this People’s Summit of Latin America, the Caribbean and Europe for Social Justice, International Solidarity and Defense of our Common it will be demanded to stop the politics of adjustment and their "austerity" and to redefine the global financial architecture.

In the People’s Summit of Latin America, the Caribbean and Europe for Social Justice, International Solidarity and Defence of our Commons the People’s Movements of our two continents demand and fight in the streets for social justice and an alternative model that guarantees fully the political, democratic, economic, social, cultural and environmental rights.

In parallel to the official meetings, the People’s Summit Summit will be the legitimate reflection of the fights and resistances and demands of our peoples for alternatives to the neoliberalism, the patriarchy, the colonialism and the destruction of the environment for the profit of few ones. The People’s Summit will be developed for social and environmental justice, solidarity and unity among the peoples of Latin America and Europe, the defense of our commons and the rejection of the commercialization of the nature and the life.

The themes must include our vision on the model of society we want, the democracy and citizen participation, the human rights, the recognition of our lands of origin, the women and the diversity of the sectors we represent, the common goods, the nature and Mother Earth, the integration, the investments and the trade, the democratization of communications, the global governance and the ruling model.

Together with the main topics there will be room for self-managed activities to emerge from the participating organizations.

The Summit of the Peoples, our summit, will be the alternative space in which the energies, strengths and needs of our peoples will be expressed.
