PROTEST THE WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM SATURDAY FEBRUARY 2ND, 6PM POWELL AND MARKET (MEETING IN FRONT OF THE B OF A BRANCH) AN EVENING OF LIVE MUSIC, FILMS, AND PROTEST IN THE STREETS Each year the heads of the world's 1,000 largest corporations gather at a gala five day gathering to discuss ways to tighten their global power. This year, activists in New York City have called for an anti-capitalist convergence, taking to the streets to protest this system of capitalist control. In the rapidly gentrifying streets of San Francisco, we see the results of WEF formulated policies everywhere we turn. When social services are cut drastically, we see the WEF's policies at work. When homeless folks are driven off the streets in favor of downtown business interests, we see the WEF at work. When poverty rates shoot up while affordable housing quickly disappears, we see the WEF. On Saturday February 2nd at 6PM, we will be gathering in solidarity with the anti-capitalist convergence, to protest against the WEF, against their corporate sponsored war, and against the corporate policies which have caused many San Franciscans to remain homeless. Please join us for an evening in the streets, complete with live music, films, and a vision of a better world, where local control and basic human rights take precedence over the interests of an elite few.
