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

Yesterday, 7.11. the action days against NATO started in Ljubljana -
Slovenia. The first day was named "En la proxima estacion entrada
libertad" - something like a Spectacel in the city - street party -
creativity against NATO and war - performances and political
message... NO NATO - GIVE US PEACE!!

The action started in Bavarski dvor at 12:00 in the centre of the city,
where some 200 people gathered... We blocked the main street and
marched through the city - towards parliment of Slovenia and HQ of
Government... On the way there was some street performances,
cheering slogans, dancing and distributing leftlets... We had some
costums - two of NATO death with guns - which helped slovenian
police controling and attacking the anti-NATOs... Was very
colourfull, funny and the march had a lot of energy... After we
visited Parliment house we went towards Government HQ and on
the way activists put the big banner (NO NATO -GIVE US
PEACE) to one of the crossing buildings... When we came infront of
the Government HQ - demonstrators got suprised: on the building
(on terase) across the street band started to play and we occupied the
place infront of Government and start with our street party... After
the first band played - there was some speaches of public known
persons and also activists... Food not bombs colective was
distributing food and some drinks - there were some more
performances and more bands playing... When the sun went down
joglers started their long and very good fire performance... Street
party lasted until 7 pm when we gave the last speach and call people
to join other actions and especialy demo on saturday...

Police was all the time with us in a full preparation, with camermans
and civil cops (like usual) but there was no conflicts, no
provocations and action ended peacefully... They tried to stop the
concert on the terase but they could not and all program (alltohoug
the action was illegal-like all the others) went through... A group of
croat anarchists was not allowed to cross border (3 times) in the
name of SECURITY... Their SECURITY: explotation and
We hope that groups of activists from Croatia and Austria will be
able to cross borders in next days, so that they can join our other

You can find reports from actions and photos on


Today another actions are going to happen - SPEAKERS CORNER
in the main square of Ljubljana, where everyone will have
oportunity to express their opinion... In the evening there will be a
mobil action in the city - to encourge people to join DEMO on 9th of

9.11. - the day of our loudest protest / MARCH FOR PEACE / demo
against joining NATO
