On January 26, 2008, people around the world will take to the streets for a worldwide mobilization to demonstrate that “Another World Is Possible,” and a determination to converge our many struggles — for workers’ rights, against war, for climate justice and others — into one movement.
The Vermont Workers’ Center has joined with the Vermont chapter of Iraq Veterans Against the War and the Global Justice Ecology Project to initiate a “Call to Vermont Organizations” to participate in these mobilizations. We are proposing the themes of war, healthcare and climate change for a united public demonstration because we believe these are the three largest issues facing Vermonters today, but in keeping with the spirit of openness of the World Social Forum, from which the call for mobilizations originated, we are encouraging other organizations to plan additional events and activities during the week of January 21-27 around the theme that “another world is possible.” Workshops, educational forums, direct actions, and social events are all encouraged.

We encourage Workers’ Center members, supporters and allied organizations to:
1) Sign on to the call (as an organization or an individual) by emailing globaljustice [at] workerscenter [dot] org
2) Stay informed by signing up for the listserve (sign up at wsf2008vt.blogspot.com)
3) Propose (or plan) additional activities. The Workers’ Center will publicize a comprehensive list of all activities during the week, so let us know what you’re planning at globaljustice [at] workerscenter [dot] org
