Past Mobilisation Reflections PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 20 July 2004

The G8 Summit is coming to Britain in the early summer of 2005. It is a meeting of the global elite that offers an unique opportunity for people to take action against one of the most powerful symbols of capitalism's most recent form: the neo-liberal world order.

In preparation the pamphlet Days of Dissent: Refections on Summit Mobilisations has been produced.  This pamphlet offers a collection of voices from past mobilisations.  From the 1988 IMF and World Bank meeting in West Berlin to the much more recent mobilisation against the WTO Ministerial in Cancun, Mexico in autumn 2003, each article is by someone who was directly involved in the mobilisation.  They attempt to explain why movements decided to mobilise, how they went about doing so, how the events unfolded and - most importantly of all - they attempt to assess what lessons can be learned.  As groups and movements from the UK and further afield begin to consider what our response to the G8 Summit should be we hope these articles will contribute to a process of reflection; of learning from our collective history, from our mistakes as well as our successes.  We hope these articles provide inspiration for action.

"Days of Dissent: Reflections on Summit Mobilisations" articles can be found at www.daysofdissent.org.uk. The documents can be viewed online, or the entire pamhplet can be downloaded as an A4 size pdf document.

A wider selection of articles collected in the preparation of Days of Dissent can be found under document downloads.

A few hard copies of the magazine are also still available. Send blank cheques, postal orders or well hidden cash to: Days of Dissent Magazine, Box 8, The Summac Centre, 245 Gladstone Street, NG7 6HX, England.  For each copy send 1.50 plus 50p for postage and packaging. For orders outside of the UK add a further 50p for postage. Equivalent amounts in other currencies also accepted.

Feedback on the pamphlet can be sent to: daysofdissent(at)yahoo.co.uk
