(en) European PGA* Conference Newspaper - g8 callout a global call written at campinski, August 2006

Date Thu, 05 Oct 2006 13:41:22 +0200

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

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.
