(en) US, San Francisco, July 6-8: All Empires Must Fall! - West Coast Anti-Capitalist Mobilization Against the G8

Date Tue, 07 Jun 2005 15:49:01 +0300

Call for a West Coast anti-war and anti-capitalist mass convergence, July
6-8 of 2005 in San Francisco, in solidarity with the mobilization against
the Group of Eight (G8) summit in Scotland.
From July 6-8, 2005, the annual G8 summit we be held at Gleneagles Hotel
in Scotland. The G8 is a forum of the rulers of the eight most
industrialized, wealthy, and powerful states in the world. Every year they
meet to discuss how to further their interests, expand their empire, and
tighten their grip on every aspect of our lives. The consequences effect
us all, and their economic success comes at our expense. The G8 exists to
manage and maintain a system whose impacts we see all around us: war,
genocide, wage slavery, mass poverty, structural racism, famine,
environmental destruction, colonial domination in Africa, Asia, & Latin
America, social alienation, and accelerating attacks on working people
around the world.

But resistance is growing across the globe, in struggles as diverse as
they are numerous. And in recent years, everywhere the G8 has met huge
movements of people have confronted them, both demanding systemic change
and fighting for a global social revolution.

In recognition of the call to action by Peoples' Global Action
(www.agp.org) for Global Days of Action to be held against the G8, we are
mobilizing for a regional convergence here in San Francisco. We are
calling on everyone ready to fight for a better world - workers, students,
revolutionaries, anti-capitalists... - from across the North American West
Coast to converge and manifest their resistance on the streets. A Mid-West
regional convergence is being called for Kansas City, and East Coast in
Richmond, Virgina.

Our convergence will be in solidarity with those descending upon the
streets of Scotland to face the G8 head on. We act in solidarity with
revolutionaries taking to the streets to defend working peoples' lives all
around the world: the struggle against neoliberal privatization in
Bolivia; against transit fare increases in Brazil, Chicago, and San
Francisco; against the Minutemen along the border; and against the PG&E
power plant in Hunter's Point.

Global capital will show the full force of its domestic military
capabilities in Scotland - we can confront these summits on our own terms,
and this mobilization is a step in that direction.

Capitalism is everywhere, but so are we - we will converge in our city and
fight on our own terms!
