Stop the WEF

Stop the WEF nyc Jan 31-Feb 4
A CALL TO ACTION AGAINST THE WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM IN NEW YORK CITY!!! JANUARY 31-FEBRUARY 4 Speak out against the gross injustices that have been caused by corporate influence. For years the World Economic Forum has conducted it's planning of the world economies from Davos, Switzerland. After years of direct action, like that which is planned in New York, they were forced to leave. New Yorkers and all others must tell them that their secret and closed meetings which have global repercussions but are held accountable to no one are not welcome here as well. The World Economic Forum is" funded by the contributions of 1,000 of the world's foremost corporation " according to its own bio and serves only the interests of those corporations, regardless of the social repercussions. Tell corporate rulers of the world that their exploitation of the third world, destruction of the environment and hijacking of elections is unacceptable. More transparency: the economic-political topics set down by the WEF are of global public interest and must not be discussed to the exclusion of the public by an elite circle of leading economists and high-ranking politicians who then make their own preliminary decisions for shaping future policies. Rather, the topics should be exposed to a public examination and debate and must be accountable to the public at large. This means that it is essential that the media be granted free access to all sessions. Instead, the WEF decides not only which media shall be granted access to the Davos sessions, but also the topics upon which they shall be allowed to report. Join us at this huge demonstration and demand social justice!!!

WEF in NYC
19 Dec 2001
Here in new york we are putting together an anti capitalist convergence for the 31st-5th as well as an anarchist convention the week before the convergence. We need to get as many anti capitalists as possible down to NYC so we can show the world (not to mention the WEF) that we are still strong. Watch the nyc imc for info on acc meetings in new york and check out abolishthebank.org for a call to action and a ride board.See you in New York.
