Call to the anarchist and libertarian movement for a visible, autonomous
presence, whose reasons for opposition to the globalization process might
be expressed in an understandable way.

Public demonstration in Genoa for June 9 h. 3 p.m=20

The G8 will meet on July 20 to 22, in Genoa, Italy. This meeting of the
top-powerful is a spectacular survey of the tendencies towards a never
before seen concentration of world=92s economic and political powers. The
so-called globalization processes go on dividing the world in rich and
poor, starving the population of entire continents; pushing to margins,
inside single nations, growing layers of population; rendering precarious
all forms of job; eliminating any form of social guarantee where it
existed. All this in the name of profit and capitalist accumulation,
without norms or bounds. Meanwhile social control is multiplied, both
inside single states or internationally =96 repressive apparatuses, police
and military, grow stronger. We must oppose all this.
We used to be and are bearers of an anti-state, non reformist,
internationalist point of view, a proposition to reconstruct unity and the
fighting capacity of the exploited and working-classes. In this occasion
once more we affirm:
- The impossibility to democratize national or transnational political and
economic organisms that as a goal hold intensification of exploitation of
work and resources;
- Incompatibility =96 in these as in other cases =96 between the interests o=
the exploiters and those of the exploited;
- Invariance in the functions of the state =96 while it apparently renounces
to the control of economy, keeps and even strengthens social, police and
military control;
- Knowledge that "Rights" exist on paper only and are worth nothing if not
supported by a favorable balance of strength.
 Therefore the need to fight:
-  For liberty to circulate in a world without barriers;
- Against militarism, war and prisons;
- For a generalized reduction of working time;
- For the defense of acquired social guaranties =96 avoiding to re-propose
the welfare model that ended in state-bound workers movement =96 with the ai=
of reaching a quality of life with dignity for everyone.
 With this outlook we propose a path of opposition to the G8, in which the
libertarian movement can express the consistency and strength of its
 Consequently, we propose:
- a nation-wide public demonstration in Genoa for June 9, Saturday, to
ensure visibility
 and the possibility to express our contents;
- coordinated actions of mobilization in all localities where possible, for
July 14, Sat.
- We support a call for a general strike of grass-roots syndicalism on July
20, Friday;
- Organize a significant libertarian presence during the days of the
summit, being reference point to comrades coming from elsewhere in Italy or
abroad. We intend to boycott the summit claiming in the streets our right
to freely demonstrate in all needed forms of social fight and direct
action, to give visibility and consistence to the radical libertarian=
- Verify the feasibility of an International Conference on the themes of
globalization during the days immediately following the G8.

All expressions of social antagonism who recognize themselves in the spirit
of this call are invited to participate concretely to the construction of
this path.

We will meet next in Milano, sunday 27 may 10 a.m.
