Activists at Gleneagles protest against G8 summit 2005

13-06-2004 23:08

protest at Gleneagles train station
1. The leaders of the eight richest nations despite being of various political shades come together in a unified effort to serve the rich against the people of their own countries as well as the people of the world.

2. So a strong message of disapproval and dissent must be sent to the G8 leaders but if they do insist on coming, the offense must not be compounded by infringment of the liberties and rights of the people.

3. But if these gangsters do get to meet to fine-tune their strategy of exploitation, we can assure you that the downtrotten and oppressed will gather to show their dissent against the current vicious exisiting order and to show their power to reshape society to be more just.

one very long peice of paper with lots and lots of writing on it !
Barcelona, 29th May 2004. People without papers held a public assembly in Plaza Cataluna, to discuss a demonstration and the possibility to occupy churches the next weekend. It was called by the "Assembly for Regularisation without Conditions", an immigrant self organisation. Indymedia Barcelona is reporting about the progress of the movement - and also about the repression against it: 2 Barcelona Churches were occupied and evicted, 25 immigrants are facing eviction, more demos and actions all over Spain are announced.

The picture shows people scribbling their demands on a 25 meter roll of paper cellotaped on the marble stones of Placa Catalunya. The following text describes how this simple action developed.

:More taxes are expected from lower taxes. The circular argument is perfect.. This is the bankruptcy of neoliberalism. The economy grows, unemployment continues and the state becomes more impoverished.. Active working people are not included in this term `the economy'. Their rights and wage3s are even reduced. Isn't there a point where politics is forced to regard neoliberalism as falsified. Today we see clearly the falsification.."

Jailbait, porno-pop & Abu Ghraib
A featured art project at the Sydney Biennale, Action Half Life, depicts “mock heroic groupings of fresh, young models”, In Abu Ghraib, detainees were ordered to “do jumping jacks and sing The Star-Spangled Banner in the nude …. a father and his grown son were stripped, then forced to stand and stare at each other”, Are artists the best futurists? The consciousness revolution is too important to put in the hands of Uncle Sam.
