A - I N F O S N E W S S E R V I C E

On Friday and Saturday actions against war and NATO continued
in Slovenia. Today - the referndum on NATO and EU is taking
place and we are waiting for results. There is still a big chance
that the referendum on NATO will fall for the government (last
public polls showed us situation: 50% - 50%), but for the EU
referendum there is no question - people will support the
slovenian entering EU.
Although this time also anarchists went to "vote" :-), we already
made a statement in which we declare our no-stopping struggle
against the state and capitalism.

On Friday, two demos took place. In Maribor (the second largest
city in Slovenia) around 500 people gathered and protested
peacefully throughout the day. In Ljubljana, the occupation of the
place and square around the US embassy continued, but there
was no other conflicts on the police barricades. Group of some
100 activists and anarchists made a mobil action in the city. In the
building, where the UK and Australian embassies and some
multinational corporations have their place, the main hall was
oocupied for half an hour. Police tried to prevent us entering, but
the disobediance and anger was too strong. On the way through
the city, a lot of people joined us and there was a lot of work for
police. Protest headed towards the Spanish and Italian embassy
and also beside the government and parliment buildings. There
was no conflicts and everything ended peacefully in the square 50
metres from the US embassy. This place is still occupied and lots
of different activities are going on there.

On Saturday, the demo against war and NATO was called for
12:00. Some 1000 people gathered, between them group of
anarchists with anti-war (class war) / anti-capitalist banners and
red&black flags. The anarchist bloc was shouting a lot of slogans
and singing revolutionary songs. The demo went around the city
and stopped at some points, like the money-market (Borza),
parliment, government and offcourse US embassy. This time the
police barricades were the "biggest" in the history of Slovene
state. The front group showed some non-violent "civil
disobediance" protest, the anarchists were too far away, so no
bigger presure was given to the US embassy.

Next week, more actions against war are planned and probably a
big anarchist demo on saturday, as a part of 1st Balkan Anarchist
Bookfair, which will be held in Ljubljana, from 27 - 30 March.

No war but CLASS WAR!
