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.

SUPPORT #GLOBALNOISE

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

BEYOND OCTOBER 13

#GlobalNoise is a moment to establish new connections, strengthen our networks and communicate our plans for the future. The coming weeks and months a large number of events are scheduled, including the Global Education Strike on October 18, movement gatherings in Madrid (Agora99) and Florence (Firenze10+10) in November, the global day of action for the Rights of Migrants, Refugees and Displaced people on December 18.

And then there is an initiative from Montreal, Quebec, called VIA22 which is a global day of action planned for October 22 and continuing to occur on the 22nd of every month. The idea of VIA22 is to take potbanging to the next level by expressing the need that our marches and demonstrations become spaces for sharing knowledge about alternatives.
