Stop The G8 – Join The Carnival Against Capitalism On June 11th

stopg8On the 17-18th June the G8 summit will be taking place in Northern Ireland.  The architects of the neo-liberal policies currently destroying lives not just in the UK, but across the globe, will be meeting to plot yet more attacks on working class people everywhere.

The eyes of the world will be on the UK.  Instead of waiting for the next passive TUC organised march this is the perfect time for all those opposed to cuts, austerity and this toff Government to organise and get out on the streets.

Due to the inaccessible location of the G8 meeting, a week of action has been called in London in the run up to the summit including a Carnival Against Capitalism in the West End on June 11th.  A mass demonstration has also been called in Dublin on June 18th.

Planning meetings and discussions are taking place in the run up to the summit with Liverpool (tomorrow), Nottingham and Brighton holding events over the next couple of weeks (feel free to leave details of any more in the comments).

11 June 2013. #J11.
One Common Struggle.
Carnival Against Capitalism.

Their London?

London is right at the heart of global capitalism. And the West End of London, including elite areas like Piccadilly, Mayfair and Knightsbridge, is where power and greed are most concentrated. The West End is home to:

* Corporations. Many of the world’s most brutal and polluting companies,  including oil and mining giants, arms dealers, and the businesses profiting from cuts and privatisation.
* Vulture funds. Global base of the “hedge fund” and “private equity” industries, laundering the world’s blood money to invest in war, food speculation and debt slavery.
* Tyrants. Government offices, embassies, cultural and commercial fronts of  colonial powers and murderous regimes.
* Playground of the mega-rich. Middle Eastern dictators, Russian mafia oligarchs, and home-grown parasites all see London as a “safe” place to hide and spend their loot.

Our Carnival.

Traditionally, carnival is the time where the people take over the streets, the bosses run and hide, and the world gets turned upside down. It is a time to celebrate our resistance and our dreams, to bring music and colour to the streets. And also to show our strength and our anger.

The powerful feel safe in London so long as they go unchallenged. But the people looting our planet have names and addresses. On #J11 we will party in the streets, point out the hiding places of power, and take back the heart of our city for a day. Our streets. Our world.

Join us.

Like any good carnival, everyone’s invited: this will be an open, inclusive, and lively event. There will be a main route with sound systems and public meeting points. Bring music, costumes, banners, friends, ideas. We also encourage independent actions, and will publish soon a detailed map of the area to help you make your own plans. The Green and Black Cross group will provide experienced medical and legal support.

    Do you think Michael and Sarah Feeley are on the level in Cops leave the fuzz video, or is it another ploy to introduce another form of covert community policing?

    No, with my earnings.
    As a pimp!
    I’m a teacher!
    When did you come to this country?
    The same day on my birth certificate, I was born here.
    Why don’t you go back where your parents were born?

    I don’t like the taste so I only drink tea.

    I have got you now; terrorist training manual!
    Officer, that looks like the school library’s copy of The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
    But that is the favourite book of his holiness George W. Bush, so it is proof you are plotting to kill him.
    I took it home to fix the cover back on.
    How did you vote in the election?
    I was too busy marking, and filling in paperwork, then the polls closed.

    I’m not planning on going anywhere.
    Refusal to leave!
    I’m a citizen.
    Why should we pay for your house?
    I own my house and bought it myself.
    You are too well dressed and are acting suspiciously.
    I’m only suspicious about why you are suspicious of me.
