(en) US, June 6 in Pittsburgh, Solidarity with Global Resistance to the G8 Summit,

Date Thu, 31 May 2007 15:06:47 +0300

Picket at Oakland Military Recruiting Station (3712 Forbes Ave.) Wednesday, June 6. 5:30-8:00pm --- From June 6 to June 8 the leaders of the world's eight largest industrial 'democracies' will meet in Heiligendamm, Germany for the 33rd annual summit of the G8. For three days, Stephen Harper, Nicolas Sarkozy, Angela Merkel, Romano Prodi, Shinzo Abe, Vladimir Putin, Tony Blair and George Bush will meet behind closed doors at a secluded ocean side resort. While there is no published agenda for the meeting and no minutes will be circulated, it is clear that global warming, trade with China, intervention in North Korea, debt, AIDS, the occupation of Iraq, and the pending invasion of Iran are all likely topics of discussion. --- Although the G8 has no official authority, together the eight member nations control, either through direct voting power or indirect influence all of the world's major political, economic and military institutions. The neoliberal policies established at this year's G8 will soon become the official policies of the United Nations, the IMF, the World Bank, and the WTO.

As the world's eight most dangerous individuals make their way to Heiligendamm, as many as 100,000 protesters will be ascending on the northern part of Germany with the stated goal of shutting down the meetings. Calls have gone out for road blocks, actions at the eight mile fence surrounding the meeting, and even blockades at the airport as delegates fly into Germany.

But because the neoliberal policies set at these summit meetings impact people around the world, people are taking to the streets in hundreds of different protest actions all around the world. Protests are being organized around agricultural subsidies and GMO's; peoples' rights to migration and citizenship; climate change; and militarism, war and torture.

Join the Pittsburgh Organizing Group* at the military recruiting station in Oakland from 5:30 to 8:00 pm on Wednesday, June 6 in a picket against militarism and military recruitment in solidarity with the global resistance to the G8.
