- Stuttgart: let’s shut down AFRICOM (Möhringen) and EUCOM (Vaihingen)! No foreign military outposts in Germany and Africa. Workshop with Gesellschaft Kultur des Friedens. Why should we be against the AFRICOM- military bases in Germany and Africa? A military base which stands for high armament levels in Africa, the rise of conflicts over resources, geostrategic interests and the political and economic debilitation of national sovereignty. The same applies to EUCOM. Both military outposts are controversial and unnecessary mega projects.
- On the role of mega projects within the turnaround in energy policy: How sustainable is a 100% supply of renewable energy?

Do the projects of the turnaround in energy policy have anything in common with other mega projects? Movement for an environment union with Christian Jooß.
- The disingenuous blessings of mega projects: workshop with the trade unionsits against Stuttgart 21.
- International experiences mady by the enforcement of mega projects with the help of state violence and the manipulation of the public opinion - workshop with Reiner Weigand (AK Tribunal 30.09.)
The history of Stuttgart 21 has shown: The brutal state violence is being combined with a highly developed fraud system. Pseudodemocratic means like referendum or mediation, communicated by a pseudoobjective media apparatus are the hidden forces of the reckless enforcement of capital interests. Water canons, tear gas and police truncheons are the open force. Both work reciprocally and are not nationally limited.
