The Sydney J18 Collective say: 'The J-One-Eight Public Holiday will definitely be 1999's biggest anti-globalization event - a carnival, a direct action, a street festival.'

Mobile and bold squads of activists will be able to create a sense of mass agitation and excitement. There will be banner hangs on main arterial roads to Central Business District, street theatre on expressways to the city, autonomous actions targetting individual corporations, a lunchtime mass action "Anti-Business Lunch", and a 'Scumbags Tour" of corporate HQ. Also planned are a mass "Friday Night Office Party" street procession at peak hour and a special J18 Critical Mass bike ride through the business di strict.

The Irish section of the International Workers' Association is organising for J18 in Belfast.

What we are planning is a street party in Milano, something like a street rave parade, and a similar one in Roma: we should be able to involve in the party a large number of squats, sound systems and common people, to create a fun partyin' venue in both cities. We also have a link in the UK, London, which you can contact at the following email address:

In Newbury 'hundreds of happy, smiling folk, dressed up and armed with banners, posters, leaflets, custard pies, D-locks and much partying paraphernalia will converge on Vodafone and show them a better way of living!'.

In London the day will begin with Critical Mass cyclists riding into the heart of the beast in the City (the financial centre of London), followed by pickets of Reed Employment Agency, Smithfields meat market and McDonalds. Meanwhile autonomous groups will be hitting targets all over the City. The Association of Autonomous Astronauts are calling a protest against the militarisation of space, and International Solidarity with Workers in Russia (ISWoR), are doing actions against Gap Clothing.

The J18 network is working on ideas such as :
- a spoof trade fair
- banks for the poor outside the banks, where they can deposit misery and unemployment. Invite rubbish workers to deposit their rubbish (their capital!) in these banks, and block the streets with their carts.
- posters and flyers, designed like cheques or dollars.
