(en) Germany, international mobilisation against g8 protests and beyond

Date Tue, 29 Aug 2006 09:24:04 +0300

here is a call for on an international newsletter concerning G8 protest and
beyond and a call for international mobilisation against g8 protests and beyond*
> On the camp against the g8 last week in Germany we called into life an
international working group that wants to make the upcoming protests
against the G8 in Germany as international as possible - not only
concerning mobilization, but also to better the flux of information, to
make discussions, actions etc. more transparent and less one-directional
in the time before. The aim is a lasting cooperation across
borders in the perspektive "let's get rid of capitalism". Soon to be
published is an international call (at the end of the mail), website and
newsletter are in the state of concrete planing. This newsletter is the
reason for this mail.

The newsletter will be published in english every 6 weeks or so as 4-page
pdf [more often in spring 07]. as not everybody is functioning digitally
it should also be made available in a printed, maybe translated version in
public places in the different countries. To do this it needs a lot of
help and - very important - distribution points that work in two
directions. On the one hand it needs persons or groups that feel
responsible for organizing the printing [translation] and distribution
in their country. On the other hand we need points like bookshops or
info-cafes where people can show up if they want more information or get
organized - also this is where non-digital persons could leave infos
about debates and/or actions in their country to contribute to the
newsletter or to the website.

Do you have any idea who could do this for your region/country? Is it
perhaps your group that would like to do it? please let us know...

And here the Call....

.... and now for something more and completely different.

a global call written at campinski*, August 2006

Many calls like this have been made before - for people to voice their
protests against an unjust, unfair, unequal international system.
The G8 summit represents just one part of this. Many have called for
mobilisations and hoped networks would grow on their own. Although
unsure wether or not we have the right recipe, we will try to avoid
making the same mistake. We, the international working group on
resistance against the next G8, are just a group of people sitting in a
field, wanting to change the world.

We call for people all over the world to join us in expanding the basis
for a strong and effective resistance here and now against the G8
summit in Heiligendamm in 2007 - and in the future - against the entire
bloody capitalist circus.

Looking beyond this mobilisation, we will make this the next building
blocks of a strong, continuous global resistance, drawing strength from
our diversities. We call for the creation of lasting networks sharing
and expanding discussions and ideas across borders, which in the future
will make it unnecessary for us to even consider them.

To make resistance against the G8 as effective as possible we wish to
facilitate the participation of people across the world - in the
preparations, sharing their experience and in the actions themselves -
both abroad and in Germany.

Practically this means several things:
We will publish a two-way newsletter - firstly to provide relevant news
and information about the preparations and discussions in Germany and
abroad. In addition to this, there will be an English language website
and mailinglist as a forum for communication between the working group
and activists, creating a strong international network in advance.
To achieve these goals we call for you to contribute with information,
experiences, issues, forms of action, views and ideas for practical
resistance. Also we call for help with translation and distribution of
information - the creation of a pool of translators to help make
information accessible to everybody and volunteers to help by printing
and distributing the newsletter to their local communities.

We invite everyone interested to get involved in the working group
itself. Especially we invite you to participate in the international
meeting in the first or second weekend of February.
The location for the meeting has not yet been selected but it will be
outside of Germany. The meeting will provide a space for everyone to
get up to speed so we can all participate on an equal footing.
To enable people to be present both at the upcoming international
planning meeting and at the protests in Germany we will provide real,
up to date, practical information about aquiring visas and travelling,
and if possible to help financing visas.

This and many other projects of the working group will require funding,
therefore we also call for all who are able to help raise the funds

We will help make the process as well as the actions open as widely as
possible, by coordinating and providing clear and relevant information
as well as easily accessible ways of communicating.

We want change - not just for our children, but for ourselves.

We call for you to join us in making this mobilisation yet another
stepping stone, another nail in the coffin of international capitalism.
