The WSM will be taking part in the anti-EU summit protests in Dublin this
weekend and we look forward to seeing all of you there. Events get underway
at 5.30 Friday with a Critical Mass going from Parnell sq. This one will be
a very slow one so don't worry if you don't have a bike. The full DGN
events list follows, more details at http://struggle.ws/eufortress
NO BORDERS MAYDAY WEEKEND - DUBLIN, IRELAND Friday April 30th to Monday May 3rd
Everyone, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, or background is
welcome to participate or observe these actions happening over the
four days. We encourage people to participate to work towards a city,
and a Europe, that values people above profit.

Friday April 30th

Critical Mass - mass cycle and walk through the city 5.30 pm, Fri.
April 30th, Garden of Remembrance, Parnell Sq
CRITICAL MASS began in San Francisco in 1992 and has since spread
around the world. Join us for this celebration of non-motorised
transport, as we take a leisurely tour of the city streets, on bikes,
skateboards, pogo sticks, or just on foot.

Saturday May 1st (daytime)

No Borders Morning - actions against fortress EU 10 am Saturday May
1st, meet at Civic Offices, Wood Quay

BORDER CONTROLS STREET THEATRE: Welcome to the official day of the
new
Fortress Europe. Warning: You may be subject to stops by one of the
Dublin Grassroots Police Network who will be patrolling the city in
the
morning. Experience the full reality of Fortress Europe with ID &
background checks, verbal harassment, intimidation, and possible
imprisonment without trial if you do not measure up to the strict
criteria.
WELCOME THE BOAT PEOPLE: Many asylum seekers and refugees attempting
to
breach the Fortress Europe barrier do so in boats and ships. Upon
detection, they are often sent back to their country of origin. This
time however, the people arriving by boat will be welcomed. No human
being is illegal - everyone should be free to travel and live where
they want without fear of persecution.
PUBLIC BEATINGS STREET THEATRE: Europe is reverting to old-style
policing and jailing policies. Rather than look at what causes crime
and dealing with problems in society, the State increasingly utilises
prisons (often in terrible unsanitary condition) as a way of sweeping
the issues under the carpet. How long before the stocks and gallows
make a return? Today's the day. Come along and watch true medieval
punishment methods.

Reclaim The City - anti-privatisation actions 2.30pm Saturday May 1st,
Grafton St. (meet at Stephen's Green)

RECLAIM THE CITY: The idea of the "common" or public space is
rapidly
disappearing from the city, as rich and powerful individuals claim it
for private personal use. This action will temporarily reclaim a part
of private land, and open it to the public for a picnic and games in
the May sunshine.
HOMES NOT JAILS: Dublin expands, swallowing up the countryside. Rents
skyrocket and house prices are beyond the reach of many with average
incomes. The number of homeless people sleeping on the streets rises
every year without any action by the State. Yet all around the city
are
derelict buildings, crumbling into the ground. This action aims to
highlight this appaling situation by occupying one of these buildings
and transforming it into a living space.

Saturday May 1st (evening)

Bring The Noise - March to Farmleigh House to let the EU heads of state
hear us - bring pots, pans, whistles... 6pm Sat. May 1st, Phoenix Park
(meet at Parkgate St./Benburb St.)
BRING THE NOISE! The EU Ministers dine in the opulence of Farmleigh
House on Saturday evening at the expense of the Irish taxpayer. We
intend to march to their doorstep and disrupt their dinner, to show
them that we do not agree with their vision of Fortress Europe! Bring
pots and pans, bells and whistles, horns and drums to generate the
biggest noise possible. May 1st is historically a day for the ordinary
people's wishes to be heard. They have chosen to ignore us but they
cannot keep it up if we scream and shout.

Sunday May 2nd

No Borders Camp - Act in solidarity with immigrants 11am Sunday May
2nd,
meet at Custom House Quay
NO BORDERS, NO NATIONS - NO BORDER CAMP: Join us as we set up a No
Border camp on the 2nd day of the new Fortress Europe. We are not
against the new ascension states citizens coming to Ireland - we think
all refugees, asylum seekers and immigrants should be allowed to
travel
here, regardless of origin, ethnicity, or background. The No Border
camp
will be open to everyone. Activities will include workshops,
discussions, teach-ins, planning for the future, as well as music and
food.

Monday May 3rd

Reclaim The Streets - Street Party for a better future 3pm Mon. May
3rd, meet at Ambassador Cinema, O'Connell St.
NO BORDERS RECLAIM THE STREETS: The only party worth joining in town!
Reclaim The Streets happens again on the May bank holiday to wind down
the weekend. Unlike the State's street party, everyone from around
the
world is welcome to come to Dublin for this, not just those that
satisfy
the demands of Fortress Europe. Expect music and dancing, drinking and
face painting, a day for all to come and enjoy a vision of the Europe
that we really want
