Anti-capitalist call to action against the WEF meeting in New York City. The new mayor says that the anti-globalization movement is dead. Let's proove him wrong.
Anti-Capitalist Convergence on the WEF Meeting
New York City
"The mayor-elect is greatly looking forward to this event and thinks it
sends exactly the right message about New York's role as the business
capital of the world," said Bloomberg spokesman Ed Skyler. City and
World Economic Forum officials also note that one factor working in
their favor is the diminished furor, particularly after Sept. 11, of the
American anti-globalization movement, which was never as aggressive as
its European counterpart."

Anti-Capitalist Covergence-New York City
Updated: January 2, 2002
CALL FOR AN ANTI-CAPITALIST CONVERGENCE AGAINST THE WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM
IN NEW YORK CITY (JANUARY 31- FEBRUARY 4)
JOIN US AS NEW YORKERS STRIKE BACK AGAINST CORPORATE TERROR
For years now, the CEOs of major corporations, hundreds of top
international government officials and just plain rich people - from
Bill Gates to Bill Clinton - have been meeting every year in Davos,
Switzerland. This is where the real rulers of the world give the
politicians their marching orders. This is where the schemes that lead
to atrocities like GATT and the WTO are actually hatched. And this year,
the dining club for the world ruling class will be held at the Waldorf
Astoria hotel in Midtown Manhattan.
The WEF is moving here because they were effectively chased out of
Switzerland by a concerted campaign of direct action. They think that
here in New York we're shell-shocked, punch-drunk, and maybe we are but
- whaddya fuckin' kiddin' me?
This is a provocation. While thousands of New Yorkers are still burying
their dead, trying to patch together shattered lives, and desperately
trying to see how they can continue to pay insanely high New York City
rents after being laid off from their jobs, the richest and most
powerful men on earth have decided to come and party on the wreckage -
to celebrate, no doubt, the billions of dollars of taxpayer money
they've just been handed by their respective governments and explore new
opportunities to profiteer from permanent global warfare. Do they think
we have no pride? No self-respect? That we're just going to sit back and
let this happen?
As our heroic firefighters have shown us, the moratorium on direct
action in New York is over.
We are calling for for a joyous, creative resistance to the WEF's
stifling grey culture of corporate conformity; actions whose diversity
of tactics will reflect the rich diversity of our city's communities. We
are calling for actions based on principles of non-hierarchy, passionate
opposition to patriarchy, white supremacy, and rule-by-elite, and the
vision of a world in which no one has to live in fear or daily terror.
We are calling for a world in which states and their wars, the economic
violence and insecurity promulgated by their corporate overlords, the
hideous legacy of 500 years of colonialism and racism, and the violence
and intolerance of every kind of crusader and religious fanatic will
finally be banished from this earth.
It's not a pipe dream. Nothing is impossible if we refuse to live in
