This June the G8, the association of the 8 wealthiest nations in
the world (Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, UK,
US), will invade Sea Island, GA to continue plotting the
economic domination of the world. Along with the imperialists
come their attempts to instill fear and squash dissent in the local
and global community. Over $25 million will be spent on their
security, the coast lined with near 30,000 police and national
guard, and the entire region turned upside down for the
accommodation of empire, the effects of which will continue to
be felt by local residents after the summit.

The meetings take place off the coast of Brunswick, a town of
15,000 whereglobalization policies negatively effect the
community every day. Brunswick is rife with environmental
racism and overwhelmed with institutional poverty partly because
jobs are being shipped overseas at increasing rates. While the G8
will discuss their "environmental management plan," Superfund
sites fester and profit supersedes reason. While the G8 discusses
the domination of land and the expansion of capitalism, land
belonging to native islanders making up the Gullah/Geechee
nation is being destroyed to make room for corporate owned golf
courses, hotels, and resorts.

We call for people to come together in Brunswick, GA June 8-10
to examine how we canuse global meetings as an effective tool in
working toward more sustainable activism and mutual aid. To
think past "protest to protest" and challenge ourselves to adopt a
real anti-oppression analysis with regard to mass mobilizations.
To support those who will suffer direct effects of the incoming
police state - before, during and after the summit. To show
anarchy in action. To learn and take leadership from local
organizers, highlighting local issues. To have a presence of
resistance and do actions that are symbolic of the world we want
in our hearts. To work on local projects, such as renovating
houses and environmental cleanup. To arm ourselves with
hammers instead of bricks. To count our victories in the
relationships we build, rather than what we tear down.

We express solidarity with autonomous direct action in local
communities taken against institutions that represent the G8, and
add this call to resist the G8 and its invasion of the Brunswick
area.
