In classes, the first argument of a method must be 'self'. This is
needed to access instance-depentent attributes.

And the indentation is not consistent.

You should type 'self.GlobalVar1' and create a first argument 'self'
to the methods

class Foo:
    def print_something(self, message):
        print "instance %s is printing: %s" % (self, message)
