(en) US, Kansas, Missouri, City: Midwest Anti-Capitalist Mobilization Against the G8 July 5-7

Date Thu, 23 Jun 2005 15:16:15 +0300

Call for a No Coast anti-war and anti-capitalist mass convergence, July
5-7 of 2005 in Kansas City, Missouri, in solidarity with the
mobilization against the Group of Eight G8 summit in Scotland.
From July 6-8, 2005, the annual G8 summit will 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 affect 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 for
Global Days of Action to be held against the G8, we are mobilizing for a
regional convergence here in Kansas City. We are calling on everyone
ready to fight for a better world - workers, students, revolutionaries,
anti-capitalists... - from across the North American Mid West and Great
Plains- to converge and manifest their resistance on the streets. A West
Coast regional convergence is being called for in San Francisco (check
out: anarchistaction.org/g8), and East Coast in Richmond, Virginia.

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
corporate destruction of the environment.

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.

July 5th:
Meet at the convergence space at the MOMO (19th St. & Locust St.,
downtown), which will be open all day. Spokescouncil at 3 pm.

July 6th:
Rally followed by Anti-Capitalist & Anti-War March.

July 7th:
Critical Mass. 5:30 pm; Acme Bikes (17th St. & Oak St.) Ride to
government district downtown.

Food Not bombs will be feeding throughout.

Housing will be available.
