> Thousands resist the global elite at the World Economic forum
http://www.dissent.org.uk/index.php?option=com_docman&task=docclick&Itemid=34&bid=84&limitstart=0&limit=5
Political and economical heavyweights
came together behind closed doors in
Davos, Switzerland from 26-30th of
January for the World Economic Forum
(WEF), to give a "social label" to the
capitalist globalization. Before and
throughout the WEF meetings, actions,
demonstrations, and counter forums
were held against the summit by an
anti-WEF-coalition made up of various
groups from both France, Germany and
Switzerland. Saturday 15th of January
2005, the first demonstration took
place in Winterthur, Switzerland, were
about 400 people took part. Another
400 people voiced their resistance in
Chur and Adelsberg. In Aarau a creative
action happened, whilst in Thun a politi-
cal flashmob confused passers-by,
leading to spontaneous protest. In
Heiden, an attack against the UBS, a
giant bank consortium, occurred while
in Zurich, an anti-repression group burnt
down a training camp for anti-terrorist
units in protest against the WEF securi-
ty preparations. In Bern, the education
collective "Tour de Lorraine", educated
with films, theatre and gigs throughout
the week. Various protests happened
during the week in Berna, Davos,
Lugano and Basilea. On Saturday 22
January a day of Decentralised
Creative Actions was called against the
WEF summit. Around 1.500 people took
part in a series of civil disobedience
actions. At the same time, there was a
solidarity action in Oxford. Although the
demonstration in Winterthur was peace-
ful, despite of neo-nazi's provocating,
the huge mass demonstration planned
for the 22nd of January against the
WEF, was prohibited by a court deci-
sion. The Anti-WEF-coordination wanted
to protest against social cuts, salary
dumping, privatisation, institutional
racism and war. The network called for
decentralised actions instead. Many
restrictions were opposed on the
actions, a playful street party was for-
bidden in Bern. The repression and
some of the police violence triggered
protest in parliament. 250 activists
were forbidden to enter the country
and even the army had 6500 soldiers
on standby. In the last week more
actions happened in and around Davos,
including an authorized manifestation in
Davos on January 29.

FINANCIAL G7 LEADERS RECIEVE A NOISEY WELCOME!
The first of the G7 meetings leading up
to the G8 Summit took place in London
over February 4th/5th in the form of
the G7 Financial Ministerial. The
Financial G7 brings together the central
bank governors and finance ministers of
the seven richest countries in the
world. Activists from Dissent! were
there to greet them.
The Financial G7 met for a fancy dinner
at Lancaster House, but had their meal
ruined by the commotion of samba
drumming and shouting from people on
the outside. Make Poverty History cam-
paigners protested from the confines of
a fenced-off pen, whilst Rhythms of
Resistance blocked the exit, and along
with 20 - 30 other activists, made sure
their presence was felt. Noisy support
from a pizza delivery driver topped the
demo off! There was heavy policing,
with FIT team harassment continuing
from beginning to end. Activists who
refused to enter the pen were followed
and verbally harassed, whilst others
were stopped and searched.
Despite the short notice of the event
(and thanks in no small part to the
drummers) the finance ministers and
bankers didn't get to enjoy their dinner
in peace. Yet this was only the first of
the G7 Ministerials, which mark the
countdown to the G8 Summit in July,
and as the Summit gets closer our
resistance to these meetings must get
stronger - lets shut them down!
---------------------------------------

Get in Training for the G8

Local groups and networks can ask for
training/workshops on specific subjects
from the Dissent! training group by
emailing actiontraining@linuxmail.org
Workshops provided range from direct
action training, preparing for action,
strategy and tactics, blockading and
other action techniques, legal, affinity
groups to quick decision making on
actions and more. To increase the num-
ber of action trainers, three G8 Direct
Action Trainers workshops are being
organised, in Sheffield, Glasgow and
London. More info at www.skillshar-
ing.org.uk. There is also more info on
the Dissent website
www.dissent.org.uk under 'Training.'

=========================================================
Dissent is a new network, created to build a mobilisation
against the G8. The network is based on the Peoples' Global
Action Hallmarks, rooted in local and autonomous organising
and action, and aims to go beyond the G8. The PGA is
a decentralised, non-heirachical, global network of social
movements, for a copy of the hallmarks visit www.agp.org

World Sociial Forum Porto Alegre 2005

Individuals involved in the Dissent! net-
work took part in the Caracol - (the
autonomous space during the WSF)
hosting two meetings that brought
together people mobilizing against the
IMFand World Bank, WTO, G8 and FTAA.
The meetings aimed to reflect on past
mobilizations and lessons that we had
learned, find different strategies of
resistance and develop practical and
concrete tools to support the different
mobilizations in 2005.

Global Resistance 2005: A call to action

This call is a result of converging at the
International youth camp at the 5th
World Social Forum of people involved
in building resistance to the meetings
of the global elite. It is a call for people
to support and participate in the mobili-
sations. To show both political and
practical solidarity with those actively
resisting the summits, and to organise,
and take part in actions coinciding with
these events in villages, towns and
cities worldwide. Moreover, it is a call
for this resistance and these expres-
sions of solidarity to co-ordinate and
co-operate amongst themselves, to
open up spaces in which we can learn
from one another, from our differences
as much as our commonalities
Let 2005 be the year in which our
resistance becomes truly global!

International News

>International Co-ordination meetiing
Over the last 18 months an international
network has been emerging to co-ordi-
nate action against the G8 in 2005.
Across Europe and further a field, indi-
viduals, groups and networks have been
producing their own anti-G8 materials,
building links with groups locally,
organising benefit parties and dis-
cussing what they want their role to be
in the mobilisation. On 26th -27th
February in Southern Germany there
will be a meeting to co-ordinate these
groups mobilising against the G8.

>Kom in actiie!!

People from all around Holland have
started to meet up on a regular basis to
create a solid basis for action in
Scotland. To inform and inspire, they
are planning several info nights, action-
planning evenings and activist training
days. For more information mail to:
infog8@squat.net

> Mondialisons la Resistance!
"Collectif des resistances" in Lyon are
organising a week of resistance against
the G8 in May 2005.

> Achtung Giipfell!!
A large network has formed in
Germany, Austria and Switzerland
including groups and people from 30
different cities, who want to work
together against the G8 in 2005, and on
towards the G8 in 2007 when it comes
to Germany. Information gatherings
have been held in three cities, as well
as a big fundraising party. They are
planning an info-tour in March/April.

Police to stand trial over Aubonne Bridge Action

The Aubonne-Bridge Action against the
G8 in 2003, in which two activists,
Martin Shaw and Gesine Wenzel, nearly
lost their lives as the police cut their
climbing rope, has entered an exciting
new phase. The High Court has accept-
ed their appeal. It had been previously
ruled that the police were not to be
charged declaring that the incident was
produced by the activists' own temeri-
ty. The highest ranking officer, and the
officer who cut the rope will now be
sent to trial under the accusation of
simple and severe bodily harm with
negligence.

The activists remain skeptical. "While
we are very happy about this decision,
we have deep concerns that the judicial
system really wants to find out the
truth." said Martin Shaw. Gesine
Wenzel says "There is a definite refusal
to find out about the implications of the
hierarchy. They aim to consider the two
accused policemen as the black sheep
and the incident as an accident. But if
one really wants to avoid such dramas,
the entire system of police intervention
and internal organization has to be
looked at."

29 parliamentarians from different par-
ties are openly supporting the activists
case. The climbers who have suffered
severe physical and emotional injuries
have received no compensation, whilst
considerable amounts have been
awarded to shop-owners whose win-
dows were destroyed during the
protests. "This shows how the state
protects property over people's lives",
concluded the activists. "The decision
of tribunal is a first step. But it is
important to remember that this is
absolutely exceptional and that most
complaints about police violence remain
uninvestigated and never lead to prose-
cution."

> Poliice to stand triial over violence at G8 summit in Genoa

Italian police accused of violence during
a raid against protesters at the G8 sum-
mit in Genoa in 2001 must stand trial, a
judge has ruled. The trial should start
on 6 April 2005. Twenty-eight Italian
police officers have been charged with
lying, slander and the intent to serious-
ly injure Anticapitalists at a school in
Genoa which which they were using as
a base during the 2001 G8 in Genoa,
Italy.

The summit was marred by violence.
One protester was killed and hundreds
of police and demonstrators were
injured. Protesters based at the Diaz
school alleged that they had been
attacked and beaten in their sleep dur-
ing the raid. Police chiefs claimed they
had acted on a tip-off that activists
planning violent protests were hiding in
the school.

Almost 100 people were arrested in the
raid on the school and taken to a bar-
racks, where it has been alleged that
they were beaten and abused by police.
On Monday, Judge Daniela Faraggi con-
firmed that 28 police face trial in con-
nection with the raid, which was a key
flashpoint during a violent weekend.

WAKE UP AND SMELL
THE GREENWASH
Last year the Intergovernmental Panel
on Climate Change announced that by
2050 'a million species could face
extinction'! In the same year Tony Blair
publicly announced that cutting carbon
dioxide emissions was 'essential to
'avert disaster'' yet recently leaked
documents reveal that the UK govern-
ment was simultaneously attempting
'to remove targets that would reduce
carbon dioxide emissions during high-
level meetings to formulate Europe's
climate policy' (The Independent,
16.01.05). IT'S A SHAM, a facade, an act,
a rip-off, a con, a trick ... Tony Blair is
the Greenwash Guru, arguing that mar-
ket environmentalism and the Kyoto
Protocol will save the day. A Protocol,
lets remember, which is not only a
flawed method of reducing CO2 emis-
sions but involves turning the atmos-
phere into a giant commodity to be
bought and sold like barrels of oil by
traders, governments and corporations,
further deepening the world's already
gaping imbalances of power and not
even effectively reducing emissions
into the bargain!
A more realistic picture of Tony goes
something like this ... he pedals a gov-
ernment that annually invests £40 mil-
lion into research projects that are of
direct benefit to the fossil fuel industry,
has recently given the green light to a
5.5 billion road building programme, the
biggest for two decades and his own
Environment Agency has invested 64
million in oil firms [BP and Shell] that
have been condemned for contributing
to flooding and climate change' (The
Independent, 07.01.03).
At the 2005 G8 summit we can unite in
our opposition to climate chaos and the
capitalist system creating it, our com-
mitment to direct action and civil dis-
obedience as the most effective form
of struggle. Not only that, we can build
a European Climate Justice Network
that can look beyond the G8 Summit
and Blair's 'leadership' of the EU and
begin to challenge the global capitalist
system, which has led us to the brink of
climate chaos on a scale never before
seen by human eyes. Solutions to this
problem will not come from career path
politicians or oil executives but from
the bottom up, from the grassroots,
from us.

Anti-Militarist Blockade
of Faslane - 4 July
G
Why:: The rich countries of the world
hy
depend on their overwhelming military
might to defend and extend the globali-
sation that allows them to exploit and
oppress the poor. Nuclear weapons are
the ultimate expression of the militari-
sation that makes economic globalisa-
tion possible.
How:
How: Up to you. We are asking people
to respect the non-violence and safety
guidelines *on this action* - these are
fundamental to some of the groups
behind both the initial call and recent
successful blockades at Faslane. Within
that: blockade, cut in, dance, mourn,
swim, use your imagination!
Where:
Where: Faslane Naval Base (near
Glasgow). Home to all Britain's nuclear
(and many non-nuclear) weapons.
When:

Working group against work
This new working group in Dissent! is
also part of an international network of
unwaged struggles and resistance to
low-paid, insecure work. We aim to
take action that comes out of our day-
to-day struggles over work, housing and
state-imposed punishments for not
working.
There are many targets in Scotland.
Diageo, owners of Gleneagles, runs a
New Deal scheme called Tomorrow's
People. We can 'visit' bailiffs and firms
raking in profits from peoples' debts;
employment agencies, firms & organisa-
tions involved with the New Deal and the
benefits regime. Actions could include
piquetero-style roadblocks, free shops,
occupations, disruptive parties at shop-
ping centres and job centres ('make
employment zones enjoyment zones').

A celebration of the right to
roam; walking in the Ochil hills
While the G8 leaders meet in the
Gleneagles hotel, we will be looking at
them from above on the Ochil hills, and
laughing at them, with a big day-glow
banner. Please do join us, comrades, for
friendly encounters on the hills. Let the
hills be a weapon free zone. There will
be several organised walks in the Ochil
Hills in the run up to the G8 Summit at
Gleneagles for people to get familiar
with theo Dlandscape and to meet other
walkers! Walks are happening every
weekend from spring equinox onwards.
Also we hope to test out and learn vari-
ous communications methods on the
hills, from using simple whistles, to
morse code with flash lights.

BLOCKADE THE G8!
The G8 are the group at the heart of
the corporate Globalization, co-coordi-
nating a neo-liberal assault on our liveli-
hoods, public services, jobs, wages and
environment. They make promises on
seeking real solutions to the world's
problems, but in reality have failed to
deliver in making any progressive
changes. Examples of this are their
inability to cancel debts' owed by the
world's most poorest nations, or imple-
ment the Kyoto agreement to reduce
greenhouse omissions that are killing
our planet.
The reason for this is that the G8 are
not a body that can be negotiated with
as their main interest is to protect and
promote free trade in all its forms,
encourE ging maximum profiteering from
aR M
the sale of goods, service, crops, and
intellectual property. Any pressure to
change the G8 will come externally
from maximum militancy, organizing
against them so as to expose their real
agenda by discrediting it. We need to
confront the G8 by disrupting their
secret meeting; this can be achieved by
blockading the summit when it starts on
the Wednesday 6th July.
While we should support all protests
against the G8 and what it stands for,
we support the call for blockading the
summit on Wednesday the 6th July and
agree to mobilize to build this action as
large as possible.

Trapese
The Trapese roadshow has done over
50 events around the country since
September, "informing and mobilizing
around the issues behind the G8." The
majority have been workshops intro-
ducting the G8 and how it came to exist
as such a powerful institution. We also
look at the issues that will be making
the headlines, (debt/Africa and climate
change) and discuss people's views on
these topics, as well as looking at the
plans for the mobilisation this summer
and brainstorming ideas for actions.
One of the most positive things that has
come out has been bringing people
together who want to be active against
the G8. We are planning to do a tour
during the spring if there is demand for
it, widening the cross-section of people
who come to our talks. We are looking
for local groups/individuals to publicise
events, and inviting other groups along
(anti war groups, local FOE etc.) We
will put on an evening performance
with the Schnews crew, "Have I got
Schnews for you" style. Let us know if
there is a theatre, independent cinema
or festival local to you where we could
do workshops, trainings or benefits.
If you came to an event and you have
constuctive criticisms/ideas please let
us know. All our resources are available
on our new website www.trapese.org,
check it out. So its really easy -why not
get out there a do a g8 workshop your-
self?

Days Of Disent - Reflections On Summit Mobilizations
From London and Seattle to Prague,
Gothenburg, Evian, Cancun and beyond,
mobilisations against international sum-
mits have succeeded in putting anti-cap-
italism back on the agenda. 'Days of
Dissent' is a collection of voices from
within these mobilisations. Each article
is written by people who were directly
involved. They attempt to explain why
movements decided to mobilise, how
they went about doing so, how the
events unfolded and - most importantly
of all - they attempt to assess what les-
sons can be learned. It is important that
we attempt to learn from our collective
history, from our mistakes as well as our
successes. 'Days of Dissent' is one con-
tribution towards this process of reflec-
tion. Its aim is to provide inspiration for
action.
To order copies send blank cheques,
postal orders or well hidden cash to:
Days of Dissent Magazine, Box 8, 245
Gladstone Street, Nottingham, NG7
6HX.
For each copy send 1.50 plus 50p for
postage and packaging. For orders out-
side of the UK add a further 50p for
postage. Equivalent amounts in other

The 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.
