“There is one common struggle against those who have appropriated the
earth, the money, and the machines.” ― Voltairine de Cleyre

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 affinity
groups will come forward and propose more

We need your help to make all this happen!
