JUNE 18th International day of action, protest and carnival aimed at the
heart of the global economy.

Around the world, the movement grows -- from the forests of Chiapas to the
streets of London, from the grain farmers of India to the landless in
Brazil to the unemployed in France. Inspired by the Zapatista struggles in
Mexico and the Intercontinental Encuentros, and by the global actions
against the G8 (most powerful) nations and the World Trade Organisation in
1998,  activists from many countries are planning co-ordinated actions
around the world to oppose neoliberal capitalism.

On June the 18th this year the G8 nations will meet in Koln, Germany, to
further promote their vision of "free"trade,  economic growth and corporate
dominance.  Meanwhile across Europe, in Canada, Nigeria, Venezuela,
Argentina, Mexico, South Korea, Indonesia, Malaysia, Brazil, Australia and
many more nations,  activists  will occupy and transform their local
financial districts (stock exchanges, banks, corporate HQs) .  Autonomously
organised events ranging from educational forums, pickets, protests,
discussions, blockades, hacking and street parties  will disrupt business
as usual and show the world that things could be very different..
