no anti-wef demonstration in bern nxt wknd

attac bern informs, that the organisers have decided not to push further and not to hold the announced anti-WEF demonstration this coming saturday in bern.
the city of bern had agreed to only very repressive conditions under which a big demonstration were to be allowed. [i wrote about this here]. however the trade unions and other leftists groups have not shown much solidarity to justify pushing the issue further.
under these circumstances the organisers prefer to promote small symbolic actions of protest instead of a big demonstration doomed to provoke huge police repression by the militaristically organised police forces.

alternatively people are asked to attend the counter-conference entitled the other davos saturday 22.1.2005 starting around 1800 @ dampfzentrale bern.

and in quite unrelated news:
