>S26 GLOBAL DAY OF ACTION AGAINST THE IMF, WB & CAPITALISM
>Following the global days of action against capitalism of May 1998 (Global
>Street Party vs G8 Summit), June 1999 (Carnivals against Capitalism vs G7
>Summit), November 1999 (Mobilisation vs WTO ministerial) and May 2000
>(reclaiming Mayday), comes "S26"....
>From 26-28 September 2000 the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the
>World Bank (WB) hold their AGM meetings in Prague, Czech Republic. These
>bodies perpetuate misery, debt and poverty throughout the world by imposing
>'structural adjustment programs', lending money to corrupt regimes, and
>demanding socially and ecologically bankrupt but economically 'stimulating'
>measures, such as dam-building.
>Already thousands of activists, campaigners, concerned citizens globally
>have pledged to go to Prague to shut the meetings down, with many many more
>acting in solidarity in their home towns.
>There is now a group working in Bristol to help (i) send activist groups to
>Prague, and (ii) organise activities around S26 in Bristol.
>The Bristol Group is keen to publicise the S26 events, and let ordinary
>people know what the IMF & WB and the other capitalist institutions do, and
>to let people know that there are alternatives, and that they can make a
>Help is needed to:
>PUBLICISE - posters, flyers, banners, pirate radio programmes, chatting to
>people, email your friends, discussion lists, doing info stalls at
>festivals, connecting and linking up with other people locally....
>DECIDE WHAT TO DO IN BRISTOL - info-shops, counter summits, street theatre,
>RTS, critical mass bike rides, strikes, demos, sabotage, office occupations,
>all these and much more have been suggested. Not everyone has to be involved
>in everything - organise autonomously!
>DECIDE WHAT TO DO IN PRAGUE - maps, photo sets, language skills, local
>knowledge, inspiration, friends, crash space, equipment, training; all this
>and more could be uselful (esp Czech speakers so Bristol agitprop can be
>translated into the home language, to help communicate with locals in
>Prague, and basic vocab lessons)
>RAISE MONEY! - as ever
>So if you're interested get in touch. There will be a Bristol S26 collective
>presence at Ashton Court to raise awareness, and at the Zapatista! film
>showing at the Cube Cinema (King Square BS2) on 13 July.
