(en) Britain, Resisting the G8* 2005 - Book Out Now!

Date Sat, 14 Jan 2006 08:27:43 +0200


‘Shut Them Down!: The G8, Gleneagles 2005 and the Movement of Movements’ is out now!
From 6-8 July 2005, the leaders of the eight most powerful states came
to Gleneagles in Scotland for their annual, set piece summit. As has
come to be expected, they were met with counter-summits, protests and
blockades. The focus of this book is those attempts to… Shut Them Down!
Edited by a group from within Dissent!, the network which coordinated
anti-capitalist resistance to the summit, the book is 368-pages long and
contains 34 articles, dozens of powerful photographs and a hilarious cartoon.
As well as action stories from the frontlines of resistance to the
summit, there are detailed accounts of how various aspects of the
mobilisation were organised, and analysis of the lessons to be learned.
But Shut Them Down!’s relevance extends far beyond the Gleneagles
experience. It addresses issues fundamental to anyone involved or
interested in social movements today such as the nature of openness and
‘horizontality’ and the limits of the ‘activist’ identity. Most
important of all, Shut Them Down! attempts to pose the question: how do
we take those new worlds we glimpse in such moments and generalise them
so that they make sense in the rest of our lives?

Shut Them Down! is published by Dissent! (www.dissent.org.uk
