Resist the Meeting of the International Elite!
There is now a meeting time and place, with transport from Brighton
to the action in Steyning on 5th November (see end of mail).
Over the last few years, meetings of the rich and
powerful – the World Trade Organisation, the
International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank, the
G8, NATO etc… - have been heavily contested by the
world’s people. The 2005 G8 Summit, to be held in the
UK, looks set to be the next focus of global
resistance. The Dissent! Network in the UK is
co-ordinating the anti-capitalist mobilisation against
the Summit. As important as these meetings have been
as focuses of resistance, the formulation of global
policy isn’t limited to these Kodak moments.

On 5th and 6th November 2004 some of the worlds most
powerful people are planning on meeting in the Sussex
countryside to discuss “International Rule Making for
Global Capital Markets”. The conference will bring
together members of the US Treasury Department, the
IMF, the European Commission and the German Stock
Exchange with heads of business and industry and
leading academics. The purpose of the conference is to
facilitate informal networking and frank and
“off-the-record” discussion between those with the
power to facilitate the smoother management of the
global economy – a system based upon the daily
exploitation of the vast majority of the world’s
population, the pursuit of war and the destruction of
ecologies.

We have other plans!
Whilst the primary focus of the Dissent! Network is
upon co-ordinating radical resistance to the 2005 G8
Summit, the Network is hoping to achieve far more than
merely organising one spectacular day of action. We
are hoping to build a lasting anti-capitalist movement
in the UK and to strengthen local and global networks
of struggle. As one contribution to this process, a
number of groups affiliated to the Network, based in
the South East of England, are calling for groups and
individuals across the country to resist the meeting
of the international elite planned to take place at
Wilton Park in November.

The Conference commences at 14:30 on Friday 5th
November and ends early on Saturday afternoon. We are
calling for people to resist the meeting however they
see fit. Organise yourselves into small groups, talk
about what you can imagine doing, organise your own
actions and communicate with others. Up-to-date
information and a legal and action briefing will be
available on the evening of Thursday 4th November in
Brighton, the exact location of this meeting, along
with maps of the area and info updates will be
available at: www.freewebs.com/shuttheg8 or by calling
the Info-Phone: 07837 942373. If you require
accommodation in either Brighton or Worthing on the
Thursday or Friday night, email:
brightonantig8@yahoo.co.uk as soon as possible.

Meeting Points:
Steyning:
14:30, Playing Fields, Vicarage Lane, Steyning, East
Sussex (opposite St. Andrews Church, next the Steyning
Community Centre).

Brighton:
12:30, The War Memorial, Old Steine, Brighton
