"To reclaim the streets is: to take back our public everyday space from the deadening stranglehold of the car, giving the city a breath of fresh, festive resistance."

On May 16th tens of thousands of people all over the world will take back their streets. So far the tally stands at 27 towns and cities in 18 countries and counting.

Welcome to the Global Street Party: Bogota, Berlin, Bielefeld, Thuringen, Lyon, Birmingham, Sydney,Tel Aviv, Geneva, Turku, Madrid, Ankara, Brisbane, Melbourne, Berlin, Gothenburg, Dublin, Derry, Seattle, New York, San Francisco, Prague, Olympia, Turin, Toronto, Vancouver, Athens...

May 16th is also the day that leaders of the eight most industrialised nation-states in the world will meet in Birmingham, helping to increase the pace of the global market economy. But as the system is global; the resistance, if it is to be effective, must also be global.
