On February 1 and 2, 2002, Munich will be rocked by massive demonstrations against the NATO Security Conference. Across the Atlantic, a Carnival Against Capitalism will challenge the Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum in New York City.
These two convergences, simultaneously targeting the imperialist centers of military and economic power, present us with a chance to challenge the entire system of domination that controls our lives.
With both initiatives marked by anti-authoritarian, anti-capitalist tendencies and respect for a diversity of tactics, it only makes sense to integrate our efforts.
A few specific ideas for cooperation:
1. Mutual endorsement between the Anti-Capitalist Convergence and Against the Meeting of the World War Elite.
2. Educational initiatives in New York City against NATO and militarism, and in Munich against the WEF and capitalism.
3. Including information on each convergence in educational materials and reports, for example, produced by Independent Media Centers.
4. Building links with activists on other continents, transforming our events into components of a Global Day of Action.
