Introduction - Whats this all about then?
The G8 ('Group of Eight' most industrialised nations) Summit is
coming to Britain in the Summer of 2005. In past years, everywhere
they have tried to meet they have been met with a massive response
from the world's social movements. Now, in Britain, a network of
groups and individuals is emerging that hopes to resist the Summit,
and build a lasting movement against capitalism.
'Dissent! A Network of Resistance Against the G8' was formed at
the end of November 2003. Local groups and working groups are
now forming to build a response to the G8, firmly rooted in local
networking, which it is hoped will exist well beyond the summer
of 2005.

Work has already started on producing publicity and information
materials and putting together road-shows to mobilise people for
action. The 'Dissent!' network, which initially grew out of
meetings at the Earth First! Summer Gathering and the Anarchist
Bookfair, is committed to taking a confrontational stance, calling
for direct action. Nobody owns the network and it has no leaders.
It is open to anyone who wants to work under the hallmarks laid
down by Peoples' Global Action (PGA).
Get Involved | Help out

The Dissent! Network has no central office, membership list or
staff. It is purely a mechanism for communication and
co-ordination between groups and individuals who wish to work
within the People's Global Action (PGA) Hallmarks to co-ordinate
radical resistance to the 2005 G8 Summit, and capitalism in
general. If there is an aspect of the mobilisation you would like to
get involved with, contact one of working groups or local network
groups listed below.

Importantly, come along to one of the regular, bi-monthly
Dissent! Network gatherings, which take place in different cities
across the country, meet other people and get involved. The next
Gathering takes place during the last weekend in April 2004, in
Manchester. For information about this and future Gatherings,
write to g8gathering(at)yahoo.co.uk.

Resist G8 2005 Discussion Lists |
A list has been set up to facilitate discussion about building
resistance to the G8 2005. You can find details of it at
http://lists.riseup.net/www/info/resistg82005.

A list for people based in Edinburgh has also been set up, info at

Dissent! Website | http://www.dissent.org.uk
The Dissent! website is currently under construction at
http://www.dissent.org.uk.
PGA Hallmarks |
1) A very clear rejection of capitalism, imperialism and feudalism;
all trade agreements, institutions and governments that promote
destructive globalisation.

2) We reject all forms and systems of domination and
discrimination including, but not limited to, patriarchy, racism and
religious fundamentalism of all creeds. We embrace the full
dignity of all human beings.

3) A confrontational attitude, since we do not think that lobbying
can have a major impact in such biased and undemocratic
organisations, in which transnational capital is the only real
policy-maker.

4) A call to direct action and civil disobedience, support for social
movements' struggles, advocating forms of resistance which
maximise respect for life and oppressed peoples' rights, as well as
the construction of local alternatives to global capitalism.

5) An organisational philosophy based on decentralisation and
autonomy.
