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/
