> In case people haven't seen this interesting "action" being planned,
> here's some information.
> Global Rally to Celebrate Capitalism
> by Walk for Capitalism (www.walkforcapitalism.org)
> 75 cities around the world have joined "WalkForCapitalism" - the first
> ever global rally for Capitalism - and more are expected.
> Scheduled for December 2, individuals from every corner of the globe,
> and from every walk of life are being invited to "defend, promote, and
> celebrate" individual rights, free trade, private property, creativity,
> technology and profit.
> Melbourne based internet radio presenter and professional street
> performer, PRODOS, founder and coordinator of the campaign, reported
> that planning had
> begun two months before the World Trade Center attack, but the terrorist
> bombing had caused participation to double. Cities taking part include:
> York, Moscow, Hong Kong, Seattle, Gothenburg, Oslo, Washington, London,
> Brussels, Melbourne, Auckland, Paris, Prague, and others.
> "The spirit of the rallies will be festive and positive," said PRODOS.
> "We offer a hand of support and friendship to the independent thinkers,
> creators and producers of the world - to whom we owe so much." He
> described anti-capitalist activists as "Nihilists who openly endorse
> using violence against anyone disagreeing with them." And said that
> there was no place for this in a civilized society. He added that "It
> was now time for the world to choose between the kind of positive,
> constructive capitalist principles that built the World Trade Center
> versus the kind which fuelled its vicious destruction, killing and
> injuring thousands of innocent people."
> New York Philosopher, DR ANDREW BERNSTEIN, author of the campaign's
> position statement explained, "Mankind's greatest inventions and works
> of art -
> his most life-giving material and spiritual advances - from the steam
> engine to the cinema, from the novel to the Internet, and countless
> medical cures, ideas and inventions - were all created under captalism.
> The more capitalist a culture, the greater its freedom and prosperity."
> Also, as part of WalkForCapitalism, participating cities will present
> the inaugural international "Capitalism Awards" and celebrate the
> launch of "Capitalism Day."
