We ask for a correction. This article makes believe that the
« Coordination anti-omc Lausanne » would be through the citation of
it?s site http://squat.net/contre-attaque, subscribing the call for the demo
cooked by the Olten Alliance. But it is not the case. Although we have
subscribed the unity platform we have fought against this moderate
call that is emptying the Olten platform of any content. The platform
as such was a compromise between several collectives.

The 24th November 2002 we have written to the Olten Alliance about this
call :
"We ask ourselves the question seriously : how can we pass from the Olten
platform to such a watered call as the one that is proposed to us?
This call is below any standard we could foresee!
Moreover, we would be glad to know what some put behind this fashionable
expression ?globalisation?.  It seems as if, in an epoch gone by, some learned
Leninists explained to us that it was sufficient to catch the capitalist system in
proletariat?s hands to obtain a shining future, it would suffice today to transform
the capitalist globalisation in globalisation from the bottom to be happy. We are
also surprised to know that our years long fight against the WEF are nowadays
reduced to demand for human rights. As we see wars being fought in name of
?human rights? and the bourgeois democracy, we feel reassured!
In consequence, it is evident we refuse to sign such call
(...). We remind you that our goal is the WEF to disappear and not the integration
of our protest in a big fair, such as the power itself can feel happy about !"

Thanks to pay attention to it and to exclude the citation of our site from the
 Pierre Lescures article, as we ask ourselves in name of whom is he talking.

Struggle salutations
