Another G8 meeting!

Dissent! | 08.05.2007 22:48 | G8 Germany 2007 | Globalisation | Social Struggles | London

Come to the next G8 2007 UK-Mobilisation meeting!

THURSDAY 17th MAY 7pm-9pm (ish)


It's getting very close to June now so we thought we'd have another meeting, this time on 17th May. Everything else is roughly the same - xxcept the time, which is at 7pm. So ok, it's just the place that is the same: that's at RampART, 15 Rampart Street, off Commercial Road, London, E1 2LA.

Here's a map:〈=&pc=E12LA&advanced=&client=public&addr2=&quicksearch=E1%202LA&addr3=&addr1=

How to get there?

Public Transport

Nearest tube stops are Whitechapel, Aldgate East and Shadwell (which includes the DLR and the East London Line). The distance between them and Rampart is about the same. It takes 5-10 minutes to walk to/from those stations. Shadwell DLR has no barriers or ticket inspectors.

Bus routes that stop just at the top of Rampart Street on Commerical Road include 15 and 115. You can also get the 100 to nearby Shadwell which comes from South London. On Whitechapel High Street (about 5 mins walk away), you have the number 25 (the ‘free’ bendy bus) and the 205 among others.

By Car

Why? But yes, Ramparts is outside of the Congestion Zone and parking is not a problem in the evenings or at weekends. The major roads to navigate by are the A11 (Whitechapel Road) and the A13 (Commerical Road). The A13 comes direct from the M25 way out east.

If you are coming from any other direction other than from the east then you will
probably want to use the circular. From South of the river that would mean the A100 over
Tower Bridge. And from the North it would be the A501 or perhaps the A10.

Your final aim would be to find the junction with New Road which joins both the A11 and
the A13. You should be able to figure out the rest from the instructions above.

Accommodation is available.
