247 european revolts

 

This piece presents a graph of the 247 social revolts that have taken place  across european union countries from 2011 to 2014. These riots ar of progressivist nature, because they carry out an urgent struggle against discrimination of minorities, impoverishment, defamation of immigrants, fascism, neo-liberalism and oppressive policies such as « fortress Europe ». These revolts also serve a reactivation of a new democratic and civil contract that tends to disappear.
