A New Form of Resistance

So, we are not mobilising for this year’s World Bank / IMF meetings. Yeah. We have gone beyond "just marching". There will not find be a rally with speeches you will not listen to and a march from one park to another past an assortment of empty buildings.

BUT! You will find loads of action! Don’t come to Washington, DC, April 21 – 23 if all you intend to do is march. However, if you want to take effective action, march and do a whole lot more!

Check out the schedule below.

World Bank/IMF Spring Meetings, April 21-23, 2006

Schedule of Resistance:

Friday, April 21st
Evening Spokes Council - Gather with other individuals and affinity groups to strategize and plan actions for the weekend. Time to be announced.
Place: The convergence center at St. Stephens Church, 16th and Newton Streets NW (S2 and S4 bus; Columbia Heights Metro)

Saturday, April 22nd
Day of trainings at the convergence center to be followed by an evening of action. While the goons of capitalist exploitation plot their schemes behind closed doors, we will prepare ourselves for effective and safe resistance. From legal trainings to guerrilla street theater, affinity group training to an orientation on DC community struggles, we will gather our tools and CONFRONT THE DELEGATES AND THEIR CORPORATE FRIENDS ON SATURDAY FOLLOWING THE TRAININGS. If they want to eat, drink, and be merry on the backs of billions worldwide, they will do so in the face of our resistance.

Sunday, April 23rd
Day of direct action. Keep the pressure on the individuals who power the machine of global exploitation. Let them know they cannot continue their war on the poor!
