Announcement :: Globalization : Imperialism

October 19-21 mobilization update #2

Tear Down the World Bank and IMF! Raise up the resistance!
Mobilization Update #2
9/16/2007

Global capitalism is facing unprecedented global resistance!
In Brazil – the landless workers movement (MST) continues to take land for the landless.
In Nigeria – people in the Niger delta continue to resist the oil and gas industry that threatens their existence.
In Egypt – there has been a wave of strikes this year by workers protesting neoliberal restructuring.
Here in the United States – ten thousand immigrants defied a climate of racism and fear to demonstrate against a legislative attack on immigrants’ human rights in Prince William County, Virginia on September 2.

Be a part of these global movements – come to Washington, DC, from October 18-21 to confront the forces of global capitalism during the IMF/World Bank meetings!
