G8; Call for Global Infopoint Network

Mataro Contra G8 | 31.05.2007 14:49 | G8 Germany 2007 | Indymedia | Social Struggles | World

In conjunction to the alternative media material that has already started coming out of Germany about whats going on, we want to encourage the setting up of a network of nodal infopoints outside of the protest area for people in their local area to be able to go to and find out first hand whats going on...Spaces already forming in Berlin, Mataro(Cat), Sao Paulo

A WIKI has been set up as main space for letting us know if a new infopoint has been set up. The wiki also includes as much radio, tv and film links as we know of.

International infopoints already formed or forming...

Convergence Space Berlin
As a part of the mobilization against the G8 summit (June 6th to 8th in Heiligendamm) the Convergence Space Berlin starts on May 21st.
Convergence means to come closer: the aim of CS is to provide space for activists and population to approach each other, converge, interchange and create action.

Mataro contra G8 :
As the International mobilisation against the G8 is starting to happen, in Mataro, Catalunya (Spain) a local infopoint has been set up as a focal point for info dissemenation, films, live radio, G8 TV, discussions.... in CSOA La Fibra, a very large squatted factory turned into anarcho social centre, 30 minutes from Barcelona.

Sao Paulo Brasil
in jun7 we are organizing a activity in Sao Paulo (Brazil) at an building that has been occupied ("invaded", by corporate midia words) by homeless people (so it's a kind of european "squats"). The building "Prestes Maia" is the biggest vertical territory occupied by social movements of the Latin America. (and soon will be descontinued because the government promissed offer home to homeless)

See also: for the full week's programme. All the events will relate to the issues driving the mobilisations to confront the G8 summit.

From 7pm at RampARTs, London E1.

An evening of films, information and updates on the progress of the mobilisations against the G8 summit. See the latest footage from Germany, discuss ways of showing our solidarity in London and across the UK.

Throughout the period of the summit, volunteers will be downloading video footage of the demonstrations and direct action in northern Germany and of solidarity actions around the world. Come down to RampARTs (London, E1) to catch up with the latest developments on the ground.

There will also be discussions on how we can show solidarity with the multiple mobilisations, especially if the repression is severe.

The situation in Germany will evolve rapidly. We should be prepared to 'move fast, strike harder'.

A second info night with further up-to-date footage from the mobilisations in Germany and elsewhere. Depending on how the events are unfolding we may also decide to show some active solidarity in London.

People from No Borders London are taking part in protets against the G8 Summit in Rostock, Germany in the first week in June 2007. Demonstrations and meetings around migration and racism will be a major strand of the week's events.
