(en) Germany: Camp Inski - Anti-G8-Camping at the Baltic Sea, August 4-13, 2006 - Update

Date Thu, 03 Aug 2006 23:24:54 +0300


EuropeSummer 2007. Representatives of the leading economic and
military nations will meet at the Kempinski Hotel in the seaside resort
of Heliligendamm near Rostock, Germany. Much has been written
against the G8, for good reasons; just as this call-out can also be
nothing but a demand for its abolishment. In a world of exploitation,
poverty, repression; in a world of globalised wars, where social rights
are attacked and migration is combated, the G8 summits are central to
the institutional machine of the dominant world order.
Camp Inski - Anti-G8-Camping at the Baltic Sea For global social
rights and an entirely different entirety! 4-13 August 2006

Summer 2007. Representatives of the leading economic and military
nations will meet at the Kempinski Hotel in the seaside resort of
Heliligendamm near Rostock, Germany. Much has been written
against the G8, for good reasons; just as this call-out can also be
nothing but a demand for its abolishment. In a world of exploitation,
poverty, repression; in a world of globalised wars, where social rights
are attacked and migration is combated, the G8 summits are central to
the institutional machine of the dominant world order.

Summits have become symbolic locations in the political geography of
protest and resistance. They are where a collective and diverse YA
BASTA! shakes the neoliberal illusion of the end of history. These
protests have developed a shared ability to envision everything as
potentially different, differing around the world, together.

words...

Protests at summits through the 1990s into the new millennium, in
Prague, Gothemburg, Geneva to the Gleneagles and St. Petersburg,
represent multi-layered experiences of a new movement with the older
Internationalism. To bring prior disagreement together into the
network it is worth constructing within our action orientated settings
room to think. Needed are ideas to help understand the neo-liberal
restructuring of the world. Needed too is the curiosity to exchange the
praxis of resistance developed locally and globally.

Mobilisations already started for 2007 during the protests in
Gleneagles, and at the BUKO in Hamburg, at meetings of 'Dissent!'
and the 'Interventionist Left' and the widely attended action
conference in Rostock. Grassroots activists from diverse backgrounds
in the Labour Union left, refugees' organisations, people from attac
and from the autonomous left are already off the starting blocks. To
guarantee continuity of content and practicalities for the protests,
activists, from different networks around Europe, are asking about the
mobilisation in Germany.

We want to promote the idea of a camp in 2006 through these
networks, organisations and forums. We don't want an exclusive label
for the Camp as the fight for global rights can only be understood as a
fight and a dialogue with different visions of society and emancipation.
We think, instead, it is more important to find political forms for
positions to be formulated and arguments to be carried out openly.

The Camp 2006 should be a space for sharing encounters and
exchanges. It should of course make room for arguments within the
spectrum of heterogeneous lefts within the movements. We want to
trace the different European and international concepts of movement,
protest and resistance – to “recognise the differences and to
accept the similarities”. This with the idea of using the energy and
experiences of the summit 2006 in St. Petersberg to organise wide,
determined and effective international resistances up to Summer 2007.

... and action

Camp Inski, the anti-G8 camp, offers not only the good life on the
beautiful coast of the Baltic Sea (with exhausting self-organisation)
and enough space for discussions, events, workshops and working
groups. It will, of course, come into action with protests and civil
disobedience, where appropriate, to show a presence in the region:

* Under the topic “Fighting the global system of immigration
camps locally” we want to connect with the experiences of the
local no-lager campaign in Mecklenburgn-Western Pomerania.
Camps for refugees and migrants, not drawn up on any maps, can be
found all over Europe. Producing a hierarchy of rights they are a key
element of a global system of exclusion. We reply: The ability to move
freely is a right that needs to be shared globally.

* “Hanse Sail Rostock 2006 – 10-13 August - The Navy had
heavily underlined these dates in their calendar. At this big maritime
event, the Navy will celebrate their 50th anniversary and will be
present as a special contingent” (www.hansesail.com). Also
expect is the frigate Mecklenburg-Vorpommern that gained
experience in the 'anti-terror assignment' within 'enduring freedom'
along with navy units from other countries. Let's have a try and see
how much opposition, from anti-militarists, the globalised readyness
for war, that sham popular presentation from the industrial nations',
Rostock can bear!

* Rostock/Laage airport is not only used for civil flights but also by the
German Airforce. It is, therefore, of key importance for NATO.
Starting summer 2006, Eurofighters will fly from there to take part in
combined air and ground force training, in the so-called Bombodrom.
As a location for NATOs modernisation of worldwide warfare,
Rostock/Laage offers theoretical and practical starting points for Camp
Inski.

* In September, local elections take place in Mecklenburg-Western
Pomerania. An extreme rightwing party, the NPD (National Party of
Germany), expects to gain enough votes to take seats in the next
parliament. Their main focus is the fight against
“globalisation”. What they offer, like others on the right, is
nationalism, racism and anti-semitism. This is just one reason to
interfere with their election campaign.

Migration, anti-fascism and the resistance of militarism and war are
only a few topics of relevance at Camp Inski 2006. We want more.
The neo-liberal restructuring of the world is diverse - so is our
resistance and the forms of resistance. This is why we make an
international call out, to actively take part in Camp Inski with
workshops, actions and discussions.

Get organized - Contribute! For an entirely different entirety!
