MGJ has been on a long and productive strategic planning road to
develop a work plan and/or campaign for the next 6 months to a year.
Three proposals are currently on the table being discussed and refined.
They include an education and direct action series focusing on the
broader neo-liberal model. A campaign targeting IMF budget cielings
which prevent impovershed countries from spending over a certain amount
of money on public sector things such as health care workers. This
leaves many coutries unable to hire enough people to effectivly combat
the HIV/AIDS pandemic. And the third proposal is to target preditory
lending in communities in DC and link it to the ideaology of the World
Bank and IMF through targeting large banks that hold World Bank bonds
and who also benefit off of lending money to poor people.
Its a really a exciting time to get involved with MGJ and to help shape
the coming months!
Hope to see everyone on Wednesday!
MGJ General organizing meetings are every Wednesday, 7-9pm at St. Stephens
