DISSENT! Anti-G8 Infotour Manchester Sunday 24 June post Brown demo

Anti-G8 Infotour | 23.06.2007 16:23 | G8 Germany 2007 | Globalisation

After the Gordon Brown demo in Manchester tomorrow come meet at the Yard Theatre in Hulme to discuss past and future anti-G8 mobilisations


As you know, activists from around the world almost effectively shut down the whole region around the G8 summit just over a week ago in Northern Germany.
We (part of the German Dissent! anti-G8 Network Infotour Group) are travelling through the UK for the next two weeks to show pictures and videos of the protests, and to talk about our experiences of organising and network building. We also have been in Scotland for G8 2005 and will make some comparisons and analysis of what worked and what did not work in '05 and '07. In just a couple of months we go to Japan
(host of G8 2008) and Korea for an anti-G8 Infotour in the region.

In Manchester the Infotour will be explaining how the mobilisation worked and was built in Germany and internationally. Afterwards will be discussion on peoples experiences of past mobilisations and how we can use what we learnt to make future mobilisations more effective. Lessons learnt will be taken to share with Japanese activists.
