(en) International Anti-G8 Meeting, 9th-11th Feb -- Warsaw (Poland)*

Date Thu, 16 Nov 2006 08:21:30 +0200

International Gathering to prepare the protests against the g8-summit 2007
9th-11th february in warsaw/poland An invitation to an international meeting
of coordination to all those, who desire to build up unbound radical resistance
against the g8 summit 2007.
The effects of capitalism are global, as is resistance to it. Seattle, Prague,
Chiapas and Argentina are only few of the places that tell about resistance,
struggles to create experimental spaces and protests in the streets. So many
people were fighting for a better life in the past and continue to do so in the
To us the mobilization is just another step in the worldwide resistance against
the transnational institutions of the neoliberal economic system, against the
devastating effects it produces every day. we don´t only want to block the
g8-summit, we want to attack capitalist politics, that is so contemptous of
humankind, and we want to live alternatives to that.

To go on creating a continuity of resistance, to strengthen our struggles by
networking and cooperation, we invite all of you to participate...

It has been more than a year now that since we first met on the preparation
meeting in Hamburg in October 2005. Since then lots of things happened in and
around the preparation of the protest against the g8-summit 2007. Concerning
international mobilization, too, ideas and inspirations were shared, practical
preparations started. So the infotour gave presentations in 20 countries, more
infotours in Europe, as well as to Norway, Israel, Palestine and the U.S. are
planned. This summer more than 1000 people participated in an international
preparation camp, where the international working group was founded. This
working group started the newsletter "news from the fields and beyond" and the
international website (www.dissentnetwork.org). This is also the circle
inviting for the international gathering in february.

The contents of the upcoming protests had been discussed in various groups,
alliances and meetings, some (like dissent!, the revolutionary alliance or the
interventionist left) created ecpecially to confront the g8, and others that
follow a more general perspective. On an international level the contents of
the protests had been discussed at the pga (poeple´s glolobal action)
conference this year, a discussion that will continue.

Besides, people work on international protests against the g8 along subject
matters. One example is the working group on g8 and agriculture, which among
other plans call to support the worldwide actionday of "via campesina" on the
17th of april and for another day of action against the global agrobusiness at
the 3rd of june. One day later, at the 4th of june there will be actions
focussed on migration, while on the 5th of june g8, war & militarization will
be on the agenda, when the airport rostock-laage will be laid to siege right
at the moment when the g8 want to fly in.

Not all of the initiatives come from germanspeaking regions. Different
antirepression groups try to include the experiences of former summit protests.
They invite for an international networking meeting on the 1st to 3rd december
to Utrecht in the netherlands.
The street medics as well get organized internationally. Their meeting will be
on the 8th-10th december in Leiden/nl.
The project "Caravana Utopia" under the motto "Movin´ Europe" has been discussed
internationally. In the netherlands dissent! was founded, which is going to
organize infotours, and also in sweden people will do their own presentations.
Attac france is publishing a newsletter and in greece there is a website
against the g8-summit 2007. In some countries, like in the UK, there are
independent mobilizations to Heiligendamm, etc.

The february gathering will be an important contribution to the ongoing
mobilization process - aiming not only to call for partizipation in the
protests against the g8-summit, but also to organize the protests
internationally, to bring together the different approaches. Here we can
interconnect the struggles we come from, we can make plans, develop strategies
and get to know each other - to go on walking the ever more far-reaching road
of rebellion together.

Contents of the meeting

The different plans, projects and networks of the mobilization will be gathered,
the latest organizational, legal and infrastructural information will be given.
We will bring all the material we have to distribute, bring yours as well.

There will be room for working groups on all kinds of subjects to share what had
been done already and to continue working (e.g. on Camp07, antirepression,
fundraising...) Another focus of the meeting will be the reflection of the
process, the question of aims and the continuity of joint resistance.How will
we go on after the summit? How to get everyone cross the border in the first
place? How to best combine our different skills and tactics locally? How to
best combine mass mobilizations and decentral actions internationally? Which
actions can we take to prevent/reduce repression and to make it very, very
expensive for them if we can´t keep them from oppressing us?

These are some of the topics for the gathering in february. There will be
further work being done on a provisional agenda, as well as on organizational
and content preparation during the next meeting of the international working
group in Rostock at the 30th/31st of december.
More information will come soon....

To those who wants to dominate the world, the world responds RESISTANCE.
