(en) Britain, Anarchist Assembly in Edinburgh July 3rd to coordinate action shuting down G8 summit

Date Thu, 30 Jun 2005 18:30:36 +0300

Invitation to the anarchist/anti-authoritarian assembly, July 3, Scotland From
6th - 8th July 2005, the G8 will attempt to hold their annual summit at the
luxurious Gleneagles resort in Scotland. As with every recent meeting of the
rich and powerful, thousands of people will take to the streets in resistance.
We - a collection of UK-based anarchists and anti-authoritarians - seek to
encourage anarchists and other malcontents from around the globe to work
together in taking practical, direct action to effectively disrupt the
summit, expressing our solidarity in action. We are calling for an assembly
of anarchists and anti-authoritarians in Edinburgh on July 3rd to coordinate
action specifically against the opening day of the Summit on July 6th, and
also to facilitate other anti-authoritarian activity over 4th-8th July.

We see this assembly organising horizontally and without hierarchy,
in a way which enables everyone to participate.

We have no desire to lobby those in power; we do not want a seat
at their table. We stand in opposition to their very existence.
In a world where eight men can affect the lives of millions -
causing untold destruction and suffering - the freedom, autonomy
and self-organisation we are struggling for can never exist. The
G8 was created to allow capitalism to show a unified face against
great opposition, to gloss over the cracks caused by popular
resistance. It is the system behind this mask that we aim to
destroy - capitalism.

During the G8 summit, we can collectively focus our struggles,
allowing us to share our power of resistance and realise aspects
of the new world we hold in our hearts. Around the planet these
struggles take many forms - from opposing international
institutions, corporations, the nation state, or government from
the highest level to oppression in our schools, workplaces and in
our communities. They come from diverse places and experiences,
but they are unified in resistance.

As we make this callout, we are full of hope. Opposition to their
destructive system has been constant. In recent years summit
protests have made it impossible for those in power to claim
legitimacy as representatives of the people. Every wall they
throw up around their 'red zones', every police act of repression
and every ridiculous scare story in the media confirms that their
time is ending and our time is coming! On July 3rd we will meet,
discuss and plan, so that on July 6th the 2005 G8 summit never

We invite you to get involved. To contribute to the discussions
at the Assembly, let us know you're planning to come and if you

We look forward to hearing from you!

Love,Rage & Solidairty,

Anarchist/Anti-Authoritarian Assembly Invite
