Save the Date! April 24-26, 2009, Washington DC

Breaking the Bank: As Neoliberalism Comes Crashing Down, Institutions that caused the mess should go with it!

The World Bank and IMF will be holding their annual joint Spring Meetings April 24-26 in Washington DC. As they try to save themselves from the global financial crisis that their neoliberal policies brought us, we know better than to let them have all the fun without us. Join Global Justice Action to oppose these institutions, resist the dominant global order, and show that a better world is possible, free from neoliberalism, capitalism, and imperialism.

Global Justice Action will be organizing a wide array of actions and events including coordinated blockades and unpermitted marches, a mass permitted march, a people's forum, and a few other surprises! GJA will host community education events, arts workshops, trainings, and direct action meetings in the months leading up to April for the purposes of putting together a well coordinated, effective, inclusive weekend of actions that will hamper the plans of the ten thousand plus delegates.
