Finnish anarchist/autonomist network and Friends of the Earth-Finland have decided to participate in Prague anti-IMF/WB mobilisations around September 26th. It seems we will organise common transport for all groups involved. Probably at least Left Youth, Socialist League and KEPA (big NGO coalition working on Third World/development issues) will also join mobilisation some way and we will try to further broaden base of mobilisation. There will probably also be some kind of media office to translate information about IMF/WB actions to Finnish and feed it to media and internet. Possibly some kind of local actions/discussions will also be organised around S26 in Finland, at least in Helsinki.
