S11 International Call To Action!
ATTENTION TO A16 ACTIVISTS AROUND THE WORLD:
SEPTEMBER 11th, 2000 - STAND UP FOR GLOBAL JUSTICE -> SHUT DOWN THE WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM!
In September the World Economic Forum will hold the Asia-Pacific Economic Summit, "Asia/Pacific in the 21st Century: Leveraging the new drivers of growth." The summit is jointly sponsored by the Business Council of Australia and the Australian Davos Connection (the Australian arm of the World Economic Forum) and will take place at the Crown Casino, September 11-13. Participants are being lured to the summit with opportunity to "meet key leaders from business, politics and academia at a time when the eyes of the world will be fixed on Australia, and they may coordinate their participation in Summit with the Olympic Games."
At Seattle last year, and Davos in February this year, and now at the a16 mobilisation for global justice in Wahshington, coalitions of trade unions, environmentalists and human rights activists have protested the global aims of the rich and powerful. In September this year such protests will continue.
The S11 Alliance is a coalition of unionists, environmentalists, students, human rights activists and community campaigners. Join us in organising the mass rally for global justice and the environment this September.
THIS IS AN IMPORTANT CALL TO ACTION! THE OLYMPIC YEAR OFFERS AN OPPORTUNITY TO SHUT DOWN THE WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM WHILE THE WHOLE WORLD IS WATCHING AUSTRALIA.
SEPTEMBER 11TH, 2000
We ask our international comrades for help, support, advice, and solidarity. We are in the midst of a global movement against the unelected global powers. we must globalise our struggle!
in solidarity,
-the s11 alliance
