The next Stop G8 meetings will be held on 8 & 9 December in Bristol at Kebele Social Centre (14 Robertson Road, Easton, BS5 6JY)

The UK will host the 2013 G8 summit at County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland, on 17-18 June. Stop G8 is a group formed to work towards a mass mobilisation of protest centred around the week of the summit, on a range of issues as wide as the G8's influence - austerity, inequality, war, unfair trade, the environment, and other varieties of global capitalist crisis.

Following similar meetings in Brighton, Birmingham and Nottingham, there will be discussions and workshop groups in Bristol on 8 & 9 December. These meetings will discuss plans for action against the G8 across the UK and act as a common resource for any groups planning actions, and need as many people as possible to come and contribute. All are welcome (except police and journalists).

Meetings on both days are at Kebele Social Centre (14 Robertson Road, Easton, BS5 6JY). The main meeting, discussing planning and strategy will be on Saturday and workshop groups will be on Sunday. All meals £3 donation if affordable.
