Posted:Halloween themed Non-violent, Non-Party, demo to take place in Bristol on the 31st Oct 2003!!

Trick or Treat around the corporations, businesses, military and government institutions creating a global nightmare.

Main objective to raise awareness - get the connections happening between individual companies and their effects on our planet and society.

All groups and individuals welcome. Anti war campaigners, environmentalists, anti globalisationists, refugee rights, GM campaigners, Animal Rights Campaigners etc.

Assemble in the city centre (opposite the Hippodrome) 12noon.

Dress up in scary ethos themed costume -
George Bush , Guantanamo Bay Prisoner, Underpaid coffee worker, Coca Cola union shooting victim, fairtrade fairy,... Whatever!
If you need help with costumes - let us know! there will be a costume, banner making etc etc session sometime in next few weeks

To move en masse around designated central targets. (Esso, McD's, Starbucks, Gap etc - list available) Distributing leaflets, and demonstrating outside stores. Possibly interrupting the flow of business. (In peaceful non violent manner obviously) To finish in the city centre early evening.

Bring music, drums, whistles, banners, children, bicycles, leaflets etc.

If you're a member of a band or samba group, street theatre group etc we'd LOVE to hear from you.
(Or anything else you feel you could contribute!)
