GLOBAL DAY OF POTBANGING PROTEST ON OCTOBER 13
A year ago, the world was surprised by the rapid spread of square occupations calling for #GlobalChange. This Saturday we will take the streets again, louder than ever, with a global cacerolazo, casserole, potbanging protest.
The initiative comes from the international networks of Occupy, Indignados, #YoSoy132, and now many grassroots groups and individuals joined: in hundreds of cities around the globe protests are planned. [see below for schedule and info for NYC]
MANY VOICES, ONE STRUGGLE
The focus of the protest is intentionally left open to be filled by local organizers and participants. The result is a turbulent cacophony of issues and slogans: “Don’t owe, won’t pay” in Spain, “Fuck the Troika” in Portugal, a clear message against war from Istanbul, a protest in front of the annual IMF/Worldbank meeting in Tokyo.
One common theme running through all the #GlobalNoise events is the targeting of political and financial elites who are held responsible for destroying our communities and the planet, resonating the ongoing wave of anti-austerity protests in Europe and around the world. At the same time #GlobalNoise is a symbol of hope and unity, building on a wide variety of struggles for global justice and solidarity, assuring that together we will create another world.
There are many ways to help with the communication and mobilisation:
- International twitter campaign (facebook event) on wednesday October 10, using the hashtags #GlobalNoise and #13O
- Invite your friends for your local event on O13.
- Blog about it, make photos, videos or livestream your local event and tag your contributions with #GlobalNoise.
- For movement media makers: OccupyTheComms has a crowd source media page for globalNOISE which will collect all the relevant media related to the action using real time tools during O13
