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. For more information and updates, check out http://www.globaljusticeaction.org

Bring Global Justice Action to your city!
We have organizers who are willing to travel to tell you about the organizing going on in DC and how you can get involved, teach folks about the IMF and World Bank and why they're not serving the interests of the people, provide direct action trainings, and much more. Contact us at info [at] globaljusticeaction.org to bring an organizer to your town.
