(en) Ireland, The Workers Solidarity* # 85 - Ireland, The Workers Solidarity* # 85 - Inform your Dissent! Internet Review: Dissent Network Against the G8

Date Thu, 02 Jun 2005 11:50:19 +0300

The Dissent (www.dissent.org.uk) website offers the reader/user
information on the Dissent! Network. The Dissent! Network was
formed to provide a networking tool to co-ordinate radical
resistance to the upcoming G8 (the 7 richest countries in the world
plus Russia) Summit in Scotland. The network was founded in the
autumn of 2003 by a group of people who have previously been
involved in radical ecological direct action, Peoples' Global Action,
the anti-war movement and the global anti-capitalist movement.
The website is perhaps best described by the definition used to
describe the Dissent! Network itself...

"It's a mechanism for communication and co-ordination
between local groups and working groups involved in building
resistance to the G8, and capitalism in general."

Unsurprisingly it is constructed using freeware software and has
lots of features without being distractingly gimmicky and is quite
easy to navigate around.

The best thing about this site though is its content. The Dissent!
Network, which recently has added Dissent! Ireland to its numbers,
is an ambitious and confident attempt to both positively engage
activists with focus on the Summit, and to also interact with the
public at large about capitalism and its ires. All too often it is the
focus of what we don't want that gets most attention. This site
shows the range and depth of positive actions, programmes of local
community engagement and much more, for any reader who
misguidedly associates summit protests with endless negatives.

Oh and if you're thinking of heading over to join the fun this July
then you better stick this in your favourites folder as it's got much
too much to include here. Finally, check www.dissenteire.tk for
details of the Dissent Ireland site.
