Join The Week of Action Against The G8: Please Spread The Word!

J11Please share, blog and tweet all events and let’s make sure everyone knows this is happening by the end of the weekend.  Don’t let the austerity profiteers and war mongers at the G8 meeting go unopposed!

The week of action against the G8 begins tomorrow with the opening of a convergence centre in Central London with facilities to sleep and feed up to 1000 people.

The space will hold a variety of workshops and activities throughout the week.  An infopoint for the week of action will also be open daily from 11am between 8-15th June at Freedom Bookshop, Angel Alley, 84b Whitechapel High Street.

The action begins on the streets on Tuesday June 11th with the long awaited Carnival Against Capitalism in London’s West End.  Two meeting points have been announced, get to Oxford Circus or Piccadilly Circus – from noon.  A map has also been produced showing a suggested list of targets for the protest.

A street party at an undisclosed location will end the day at 5.30pm.  For the latest updates join (and share) the facebook page, follow @stopg8uk on twitter or visit the website which contains listings of all the week’s events: https://network23.org/stopg8/

On Thursday a solidarity action is planned in support of prisoners both within the criminal justice system and migrants in detention centres – full details are yet to be announced, keep an eye on the website.

The week rounds off with a day of creative direct action at Canary Wharf on Friday 14th June where UK Uncut, Occupy and more will be teaming up in the heart of the docklands financial district. Meet at Jubilee Plaza outside the west exit of Canary Wharf tube station for 12.30pm sharp. Join the facebook page for the latest details or check the website at: http://theyoweus.org.uk/

  1. Tiananmen square all over again reversing a police van over a demonstrator. It’s a pity no-one had a lasso to pull the police off those poor horses stuck in the thick of it, perhaps some texans might attend the forthcoming event – fat chance.
    Anyway I’m rambling did anyone see the capitalist tennis match against Nadal and Djokovic, brilliant match.

      If horses (police) get injured on demos, capitalists don’t care as there are plenty of exciting job opportunities available as Tesco’s ready-meals. NB if we run out of horse we can substitute it with Jobseeker, Single Mum, or Disabled Person.

  4. Off-topic, but I thought this might be of interest.

    These economists know how to state the obvious don’t they “spending on benefits went up when we were in recession”! you don’t say.

  6. off topic again – someone in our town was in court for stealing a piece of 12 foot by 6foot piece of grass from a park – things must be bad.

  7. FUUUUUUUUUUUUUU...!

    Will be interesting to see how the police handle this one, they’ve become a bit more brutal over the past 14 years.

  10. Fuck Capitalism, fuck the liar Politicians and fuck the London Met. Police FASCIST SCUM

  11. something survived...

    It’s supposed to be illegal to be in the BNP if you’re in the police. But: is it illegal for police to be in the EDL?
    If there are extremist organisations to be monitoring then it is surely the racist far right groups that need spying on, not peaceful leftwingers and folk just standing up for human rights.
