SCHNEWS TENTH BIRTHDAY DIRECT ACTION CONFERENCE, 16TH OCTOBER 2004


HOW DIRECT ACTION CAN SAVE THE WORLD
SCHNEWS TENTH BIRTHDAY DIRECT ACTION CONFERENCE

SATURDAY 16TH OCTOBER 2004, 2PM - 7PM
CAMDEN CENTRE, EUSTON ROAD, LONDON (Kings Cross tube)

SPEAKERS - DISCUSSION - FILMS - ALL WELCOME - FREE!

Direct action works. Active, popular opposition to oppressive rulers 
has been the motive force of change throughout history and it still 
is. If you think nicer politicians are gonna save the world and your 
job is to cheer them on - well, you'll be a long time waiting for 
change.

SchNEWS, the weekly direct action newsletter, has been providing 
information for action to anti-capitalists since 1994. We've put this 
conference together as an opportunity to discuss, plot, conspire and 
organise serious resistance to the suicidal onward march of 
capitalism. From the occupation of Iraq to criminalising dissent, 
from the growth of sweatshop economies to creeping privatisation of 
basic services, capitalism is attacking more and more people. And 
more and more people are resisting.

This conference is a chance to hear about that resistance first hand 
and find out how you can get involved in it.
