International Anti-G8 Meeting in Tübingen, Germany

From 26th-27th February 2005, people involved in anti-capitalist groups and networks from twenty-three different countries, gathered in Tübingen, Germany to continue planning resistance to the 2005 G8 Summit.

The meeting declared, "This year's Summit professes to address issues important to us all, amongst them: climate change and poverty. Yet these are issues produced by a system from which the G8 was born and which it attempts to manage. Resistance is the obvious and growing response to the current order. Our aim is not merely to oppose the Summit, but to contribute to the daily struggle to create new worlds."

A number of action plans were developed over the weekend, reflecting the diversity of the perspectives from which those attending were coming. Concrete action plans included:

  • Blockades of the Summit.
  • Holding a people's golf tournament on the lawns of Gleneagles.
  • Taking direct action against the causes of climate change.
  • Actions for freedom of movements.
  • Supporting the blockades of Faslane nuclear submarine base.
  • Co-ordinating actions around the world showing solidarity with those resisting the Summit.
  • Constructing self-managed, ecologically sustainable convergence spaces.
  • Resisting increasingly flexible working conditions being imposed in the UK and around the world.

The meeting also commented, "Whilst the eight most powerful men on Earth retreat behind fences and into militarised zones to pursue their policies of war, growth and destruction, we are attempting to build new spaces, open to everybody, and in which we can demonstrate our legitimate alternatives: of self-management, of non-hierarchical and consensus based decision making and of ecological sustainability."
