ab | 15.07.2005 23:07 | G8 2005 | Indymedia | World

Before, during and after the G8 all media attention focussed on Scotland and the anti-G8 protests.
Not only the mainstream media reported; over 50 Indypendent Media Collectives from Africa to Australia reported in at least 20 different languages in their editorials on the summit and the opposition.
More numerous accounts and reports in the newswires.
Here is a first summary of the features collected by Indymedia groups world wide.
