Calendar of Events

INPEG is creating a diverse week of protests, non-violent, creative direct action, education and outreach during the annual meetings of the IMF and World Bank in Prague. The aim of these activities is three-fold: to openly challenge the legitimacy of these financial institutions that perpetuate economic globalization; to highlight and educate people on the problems caused by economic globalization and IMF/WB policies; and to strengthen, unite and broaden the global movement against such unsound economic, social and environmental policies.

If you would like to help plan or take part in one of the following actions, please contact the appropriate party on our working group contact list.

Various IMF/WB meetings take place from the 18th to the 28th. So arrive early and stay late. View
