StopG8 is organising a week of action, including workshops, gigs and cultural events in June. There is also a major day of action on Tuesday 11 June, 'J11 – Carnival against Capitalism'. There's lots to do and we need more people to get involved.

Hate meetings?! No problem, we want people to come and take on jobs, you don't have to sit around in big groups discussing things. The next national meeting will be in London on 6th and 7th April (venue tba, see, we'll arrange the agenda so you can come along and get involved without spending hours in meetings.

We need: artists, musicians, fly-posters, fundraisers, trouble makers, social media geeks, promoters, kitchen crew, rabble rousers and more.

To propose items for the agenda, request accommodation in London or for more info please contact or see

The UK is hosting the G8 conference in Fermanagh on 17-18th June in the North of Ireland. The Stop G8 network has come together to oppose it and to take action against capitalism.

The G8 is a meeting of the leaders of the eight 'most powerful' nations, held annually. It will be used to discuss strengthening international capitalism and as a photo opportunity to give the impression of benevolent leadership. Any real solutions to the problems we face can't involve institutions as undemocratic as the G8. Eight professional politicians could never represent the 7 billion inhabitants of the world. The real problem is capitalism; in order to fight austerity, exploitation and the destruction of the planet we have to challenge the G8 leaders instead of lobbying them.

Stop G8 has already made an international callout for participation in a week of action from the 10th-14th June in London, leaving space for a mobilisation in Ireland at the summit venue if Irish activists call for it, and for autonomous anticapitalist actions to be taken in the run up to the G8 on May 1st. We are also planning a programme of cultural events to coincide with the week of action and convergence space in London.

We are holding a Carnival against Capitalism in the West End of London on J11, under the slogan "One Common Struggle". There are already mass actions planned on the 13th and 14th of June and we hope that affinitygroups will come forward and propose more

We need your help to make all this happen!
