This April 15-17 people from all walks of life will gather in Washington, D.C. to resist the spring meetings of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, the loans sharks of global capitalism. Both institutions are infamous for forcing poor countries in the global south to ruin their own economies in order to further enrich Western corporations.
The rest of the world is not taking this lying down. In Greece, strikes and protests are near daily occurrences, to the point that the economic disruption may be costing the government more money than they save through austerity measures. Students in England have rioted in response to tuition hikes, destroying the lobby of the Conservative party headquarters and attacking Prince Charles’ car – with him inside it. Spontaneous and leaderless revolts in Tunisia and Egypt have driven their leaders into exile, with many other countries following in their footsteps.
The IMF Resistance Network invites all enemies of neoliberal capitalism to join us in the streets of DC to fight for a just and free world. Mass housing for the April demo will be available; continue to check imfresistance.org for more details and updates.
Spread the word, bring your comrades, and we’ll see you in D.C!
