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...

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

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 represion...
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
