The Mobilization for Global Justice needs your help!!!
Now is the time to jump in. Only ten days to go before our first action. Important working group meetings TODAY and the second to last general meeting TOMORROW. The working groups are in desperate need of labor power. We know folks are busy and have lives to attend to, but, if everyone just puts their shoulder to the wheel for these LAST TEN DAYS, we can pull off a great series of protests and events. If you can't make the meetings, call or email the contact for the working group (click on 'mgj working groups' at <globalizethis.org> for contact info).
We envision an energetic spirited mobilization with music, poetry, education, arts and festivities galore --a festival of resistance. For more details, visit <globalizethis.org>.
Help realize this vision by getting involved and helping out the MGJ.
Many a way to help us out:
--MGJ wants you to design a social justice carnival booth for the festival of resistance on April 24th. E-mail Morrigan at phipco at riseup.net or call 202-547-3808 with your ideas.
--We need people to distribute outreach materials on the events of the week. Please download fliers from our web page, www.globalizethis.org, and hand them out in your community, and come to the outreach working group meetings. We have tons of the "New Internationalist" magazine to distribute; the magazine is all about IMF/WB cover to cover.
--If you are in the DC area please come out to the working group meetings (times, dates and places are on the web) and to the general meetings, Wednesdays 7:00 pm at St. Stephen Church, 16th and Newton St. NW. (Schedule for this week here below.)
