UNITED FOR GLOBAL CHANGE: #15Oct
http://www.15october.net/
Twitter: @15octobernet

On October 15th people from all over the world will take to the streets and squares. From America to Asia, from Africa to Europe, people are rising up to claim their rights and demand a true democracy. Now it is time for all of us to join in a global non-violent protest.
The ruling powers work for the benefit of just a few, ignoring the will of the vast majority and the human and environmental price we all have to pay. This intolerable situation must end.
United in one voice, we will let politicians, and the financial elites they serve, know it is up to us the people to decide our future. We are not goods in the hands of politicians and bankers who do not represent us.
On October 15th, we will meet on the streets to initiate the global change we want. We will peacefully demonstrate, talk and organize until we make it happen.
It's time for us to unite. It's time for them to listen.
People of the world, rise up on October 15th!

Joint mobilizations and European-level coordinated actions

Joint mobilizations and European-level coordinated actions | 15.O-Unitedforglobalchange | Scoop.it

15th of October:
Explicit support for the 15th of October mobilization by the ATTAC Europe network. This will be a day of coordinated action where each national ATTAC group decides what concrete actions they will take for the mobilizations. The following have already decided to mobilize: ATTAC Germany, ATTAC France, ATTAC Belgium (will also organise an action for the arrival of the Indignant March in Brussels), ATTAC Finland, ATTAC Portugal. As well as an action organised by the full European network in Berlin, as was decided in our last meeting in Greece (Tribunal against the Euro-crisis in Berlin with alternative proposals to the current policies). The ATTAC Europe network gives maximum priority to this action, to the actions of the 1st of October, and to the mobilization against the G20 (see below), to be used as milestones in the process of strengthening the joint effort to really work on a European scale in a much closer and coordinated way.
ATTAC is an international organization involved in the alter-globalization movement. ATTAC opposes neo-liberal globalization and develops social, ecological, and democratic alternatives so as to guarantee fundamental rights for all. Specifically, it fights for the regulation of financial markets, the closure of tax havens, the introduction of global taxes to finance global public goods, the cancellation of the debt of developing countries, fair trade, and the implementation of limits to free trade and capital flows.
