Changing the action against G8

We who see the free future | 08.06.2007 14:53 | G8 Germany 2007 | Globalisation | World

Thursday 7th of June saw a series of solidarity protests and actions around the planet to protest the unjust and unsustainable actions of the illigitamite and unwanted body that call themselves the G8. Remember, we are everywhere, thats where our power is. Our world is not for sale, its time to think local, act global while also thinking global while acting local. Time to change the way we play this game.....

Some actions were small, some large, some with only a minimal of impact. While others, in particular Sao Paulo in Brazil, where 140 000 took to the streets and tried to free priosoners, ended with serious property damage, police repression and torture in police custody. Others acted with the setting up of infopoints for live transmission of g8-tv and imc-radio direct to their local communities in attempt to build local resistance that might lead to further action for the G8. This year, you could say, there was only a handful of global actions, but what if this trend were to grow....making it evermore difficult to maintain the present hold of the G8.
