1. Scenario: April 15-17

4. Volunteers
5. Next working group/general meetings
The April 16, 2005 meetings of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World
Bank will represent the five year anniversary of the first major demonstrations
against these institutions in the United States. Again we will gather in the
streets of Washington D.C. on A16 to show that our resistance to these
institutions and their greed only grows stronger. A16 will once more be the day
we show that our dreams for a better world are not only possible, but under
construction at this moment, in all corners of the globe- and the IMF and World
Bank, with all their efforts to demolish these dreams and actions, can never
stop us. The Mobilization for Global Justice, a Washington DC based activist
group is calling on all working to construct a better world to come out to
condemn the World Bank and IMF seeing that they are structurally unsound
and of no use to the community.

1. Scenario:

April 15th: Gather at the G-7 Finance Ministers meeting, location TBA
at Noon. Come wearing hard hats, with tools and banners.

The G-7 is the group of wealthiest governments (US, UK, Italy, France, Germany,
Japan, and Canada) The G-7 controls the IMF and World Bank. At the meeting on
the 15th they will set the agenda and discuss which decision they will make.

Playing on the contraction theme of the whole mobilization join MGJ as well as
other groups in town like 50 Years in Enough and Jubilee USA as we go to the
G-7 to inspect there foundation and condemn the system for its structural
unsoundness with a expert team of inspectors working on education, debt
cancellation, environmental justice and more.

April 16th: Converge at the World Bank and IMF, 18th and H Sts. NW at
Noon.
The people have served notice to the World Bank, IMF and wealthy elite. Their
greed and destruction will not do. 24 hours since first notice we will
dismantle the institutions (symbolically of course). Come wearing and bearing
the symbols of construction, build props, paint banners makes signs.

*March to Dupont Circle with the music and puppets. Once in Dupont four
construction zones will be set up in four themes, peace and true security,
health care/housing/education, a clean environment, and direct democracy.
Here participants can help in the construction of what represents these
themes. All of this will be followed by a great benefit show with Riot Folk!

April 17th: More info coming but try your best to stay in town for
Sunday. It’s going to be great!

2. Money, Supplies, Copies O My!

contributions of paper, copies and supplies of wheatpaste and rollers.

3. Outreach:

To build for the mobilization MGJ has been busy outreaching to folks to come and
take part in the events. But we can only do so much. If you would like to become
a local contact and help MGJ reach out to folks around the country please e-mail
mgj@riseup.net . We can get you some posters, fliers either in the mail or by
e-mail. If you have access to copies we ask that you help us out and make
copies of the fliers.

Also, there is a good chance that we know someone in your area who could speak
at an event or do a teach-in. If this is something you think would be helpful
or fun for your community then let us know that too!

4. Volunteers

What we mean by this is MGJ won’t work without the dedication of volunteers. If
you have some time, if you have some passion, if you have some curiosity, if
you have a talent for pulling off the impossible then please come out to a
meeting and get plugged in!
