WHAT IS RECLAIM THE STREETS (RTS)?
Reclaim the Streets is a DIY street party about reclaiming public space for
community. It grew out of the M11 link road protest in England in the early
1990's. The first one in Brisbane was organised in 1995, and last year saw 4 in Brisbane.
RTS has evolved from just a protest action into an event of cultural
resistance. The cultures in contrast are those of consumer & car culture V
D.I.Y. & public transport cultures; authoritarian, Statist & Corporatist
culture V non-hierarchical, autonomous & democratic cultures; and
imperialist, beaurocratic culture V indigenous & organic cultures; work
culture V fun/party cultures.

RTS is about everybody comming together to create community in the middle of
roads, to create temporary autonomous zones within police/State regulation.
It is about self-empowerment through D.I.Y. culture, which means create your
own fun/music/discussions/theatre, don't just consume the efforts of the
organisers. It is about getting cars off the road and people on to it.

It is about telling John Howard, Peter Beatie, George Bush, Osama Bin Ladin
to get stuffed, we're gonna dance! It is about creating your own reasons.

WHAT IS THE G8?
G8 is short for 'Group of 8'. They are the 8 most powerful nations in the
world, who meet on a regular, formal basis to discuss ways to keep
themselves the most powerful nations on Earth. They include USA, France, UK,
Canada, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia + the European Union.

The G8 has been involved in organising wars of terror and corporate
globalisation (inlcuding their strategies to control the actions of the
World Bank, IMF, WTO).

This year they are meeting at Sea Island Resort in Gerogia, USA.
Anti-globalisation protests have been organised in the USA, and the People's
Global Action have called for world wide solidarity actions. Brisbane will
offer a RTS in solidarity.
