(en) Germany, g8 Resistant Art Festival*

Date Wed, 23 May 2007 18:38:23 +0300

Alternative Culture against liberty deprivations and standardization of people and culture --- Art is our weapon!! --- They are 8, the 8 most powerful presidents, who, each year, dressed in $9999 suits, take the right to enforce their choices to the whole planet. --- As an act of civil disobedience, we will blockade this summit. The G8 world is a world of wars, poverty and misery, loss of social and democratic rights, and environment destruction. --- This year they will also decide to whom belongs our artistic creations (intellectual rights property) and how to control our means of spreading them (information and communication control, especially on the net), there won't be any place left for Free, Amateur and Autonomous Arts and Spaces...

With all those who fight against this domination from the "world masters", we will demonstrate, with our Free Arts, debates and struggles, that we can overthrow their new order, that a fair and equal world is possible and that our utopia is concrete !

As they exploit the whole world, this G8 must be the last !













As you can imagine, the authorities were not really willing to support the protesters in finding Camp Places. Far from it ! The repression was increasing in the last weeks as an attempt of demobilizing us, but most of their attempts failed, turning their propaganda against themselves.

They have only allowed 3 small camps, all far from each others to try to break our coordination. These camps are based on the hard work of the Camp07 group but the state asked for signing contracts and paying a caution which makes that this camps needs to ask a paying entry to the camp (the Camp07 group will also provides water and electricity)...

That was too far from what we are willing to do, a fully autonomous camp, and if we want to prove that our utopia is concrete, we need to demonstrate it !
Moreover as the 3 camps can only take care of about 15 000 people, we need to offer additionnal space to all the others as well, to rest, prepare actions and networking between the groups, even if it is with much less comfort.

On the Free4 camp you will find several Sound Systems grouped in rigs, concerts, visual arts, performances, a spray wall,... But also videos and speeches about activism, repression and alternatives, an alternative media point to relate the infos on the net, an info point, workshops,... And of course food and drinks
If you have any possibilities to participate and to offer some other things, we are of course opened to any initiative/project/actions proposed...

Of course you will need to have some basics things like sleeping materials (tent, van,... and sleeping bags) and water and food (remember what means « autonomy »).

But what is also really important to think about is a small PMR Radio walky talkie [1] because all the coordination, and not only for the Free4 camp but for all actions in general, will be made on radio.

The 2nd June, after the demo, we will give you a meeting point to go to the camp on the radio. For those who won't be able to get a PMR radio, all infos will be available at the Infopoints. [2]
On sites like free4/gipfel/dissent [3] you will find all infos necessary to prepare yourself, to be aware of what to take and what is legal/illegal there, as well as infos on actions and contacts if you need help during the actions (first aid, legal help,...)

Camps and actions are based on DIY and autonomy so please prepare banners/ideas/paint and balloons/flyers/...

For those who wants to participate actively inside this autonomous camp we need to have a few answers to some questions (for those who haven't got in touch with us yet):
what do you plan to do? When will you arrive? Do you need anything? Do you have a generator and if not, how many KVa do you need?

If you are fully autonomous and not really willing to announce yourself for reasons that are yours, then of course we will respect your choice and welcome you in any way :)

For special questions, use our GPG-PGP public key [4]




BRING YOUR RADIO ------> G8 Infostystem !!!!!


To spread the latest news there will be a PMR-Info-Radio. It´s part of the Infosystem and like Infopoints and Infotelephones it will inform you about the latest news about demonstrations, blockades and actions. You can reach it around Heiligendamm and Rostock-Laage during the Action days. PMR means "Public Mobile Radio". This are a small type of walkie-talkies that you can legally buy and use. Usually the broadcasting range is about 0.5 km to 5km, depending strongly on surroundings (town, mountain, forest, field,...). But to receive the Inforadio you don´t need to send - the PMR receives the news like a usual radio. Due to norming you can buy the PMR all over Europe for about 20 €, better quality for about 40 €, usually you get two for that price. Make sure that they have a connection for headphones. In between broadcasting times the walkie-talkies can of course be used for communication in between groups in the closer action radius.

During actions, news will be broadcasted by PMR radios every hours at approximatively xxh45 on channel 3.
