Call to Action for April 2004 Mobilization
April 22 - 25 in Washington, DC

Mass mobilization April 22 - 25, 2004:
Take a public stand in Washington DC during the IMF/World Bank semi-annual meetings

2004 is the 60th Anniversary of the World Bank & the International Monetary Fund (IMF) marking the beginning of:

The institutions and structures that have designed neo-liberal economic programs for over 100 countries
The subordination of global ecology to corporate profits
The loss of public resources, democracy and national sovereignty to instruments of private profit
The institutionalized domination of the wealthy over the impoverished -- the new form of colonialism!
Next mobilization planning meeting Wednesday February 4th 7:00-9pm at St. Stephens Church.

(Meetings are every other Wednesday)

The church is on the corner of 16th St and Newton St. NW Washington DC, about 5 blocks from Columbia Heights metro station Green Line. Enter through the side door.

In the 60th anniversary year of the IMF and World Bank, Mobilization for Global Justice demands the following:

Open all World Bank and IMF meetings to the media and the public
Cancel all impoverished country debt to the World Bank and IMF, using the institutions' own resources.
End all World Bank and IMF policies that hinder people's access to food, clean water, shelter, health care, education, and right to organize. (Such "structural adjustment" policies include user fees, privatization. and economic austerity programs).
Stop all World Bank support for socially and environmentally destructive projects such as oil, gas, and mining activities, and all support for projects such as dams that include forced relocation of people.
We furthermore demand that the United States government, the largest shareholder and most influential government in the World Bank and IMF, adopt the above demands, and work vigorously to compel the World Bank and IMF to implement them.

Join the movements and campaigns challenging the IMF and World Bank's economic reign during their 60th anniversary years!
