Post G8 protest debrief meeting

still anti-g8 | 12.06.2007 13:33 | G8 Germany 2007 | London

Come to debrief about the G8 protests with others who were involved, either in the UK or Germany.

THURSDAY 14th JUNE from 7pm


At previous G8 mobilisation planning meetings we decided to organise a post-G8 meeting to reflect on our experiences.

This will be this THURSDAY in the library at Ramparts (1st floor). Bring your thoughts on how the protests went, in Germany and in the UK. What worked, what didn't? What was fun, what was less fun? Etc. etc.

How to get to Ramparts?

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

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.

...The last G8 debrief I remember three undercover cops turned up pretending they had been involved. It would be a shame for someone to candidly talk about their escapades only to be nicked later on.

anon, people arn't stupid and can always simply not talk about any serious criminal acts they might have commited and I doubt anyone attending will have commited any such acts. speaking of cops... their more likely role is to discourage cooperation and communication by generating paranoia and distrust.
