The 49th Baltic Operations (BALTOPS) exercise, a maritime-focused manouver in the Baltic Region, takes place in the Baltic Sea from June 7-16. Air and maritime assets from NATO and allied nations are involved in the live training events. Training focus areas include air defense, anti-submarine warfare, maritime interdiction, and mine countermeasures operations. The exercise enhances flexibility and interoperability to strengthen combined capabilities and demonstrate strenght in the Baltic Sea region.

We think its important to spread this news and to express our solidarity with the workers against German big monopoly "Schwarz-Gruppe".

Lidl in Spain was on strike by workers on 4 June, with the exception of shops in the Basque Country. The unions UGT and CCOO called for strike.  There are shops that double their turnover. They earn much more and at the same time reduce working hours. So they increase the level of exploitation in the hope of increasing "productivity".

On Tuesday evening, banned protests against police violence led to fierce fights with the police in Paris.
