‘Global Noise’ Against Austerity Sweeps Cities Worldwide
Common Dreams — Saying “we will not be silent” against austerity measures, thousands took to the streets across the world to join in a “Global Noise” pot banging protest march on Saturday.
From New York to Buenos Aires, Helsinki to Melbourne, the global 99% brought a loud message against the world’s corporate elite.
While the focus of each march was locally decided, Global Noise explains that “one common theme running through all the #GlobalNoise events is the targeting of political and financial elites who are held responsible for destroying our communities and the planet, resonating the ongoing wave of anti-austerity protests in Europe and around the world. At the same time #GlobalNoise is a symbol of hope and unity, building on a wide variety of struggles for global justice and solidarity, assuring that together we will create another world.”
