This blog author is one of the selected bloggers accredited for the annual World Bank/IMF meetings that will take place in Istanbul, Oct 6-7. This has been a fancy turn in the history of Erkan’s Field Diary. I hope to do substantive blogging inside the meetings. In the mean time, I will try to cover what happens outside. A friend of mine promised me to send photos and news briefs while I follow the meetings. Here is a protest schedule and other news from what activists are up to…

Global elites will meet in Istanbul between 28th September – 7th October to discuss  their new plans for exploiting all humanity and the world.
