Disrupt the finetuning of Finance Capital - Nov 04 PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 26 October 2004

Remember, remember the 5th of November. . . 

A couple of groups connected to the Dissent! Network are calling for action against the "Rule Making in Global Capital Markets" conference to be held in Wilton Park House in Styning from 5th-6th November 2004.

Updated travel info - Flyers and posters now available! 


Over the last few years, meetings of the rich and powerful ? the World Trade Organisation, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank, the G8, NATO etc? - have been heavily contested by the world?s people. The 2005 G8 Summit, to be held in the UK, looks set to be the next focus of global resistance. The Dissent! Network in the UK is co-ordinating the anti-capitalist mobilisation against the Summit. As important as these meetings have been as focuses of resistance, the formulation of global policy isn?t limited to these Kodak moments.

On 5th and 6th November 2004 some of the worlds most powerful people are planning on meeting in the Sussex countryside to discuss ?International Rule Making for Global Capital Markets?. The conference will bring together members of the US Treasury Department, the IMF, the European Commission and the German Stock Exchange with heads of business and industry and leading academics. The purpose of the conference is to facilitate informal networking and frank and ?off-the-record? discussion between those with the power to facilitate the smoother management of the global economy ? a system based upon the daily exploitation of the vast majority of the world?s population, the pursuit of war and the destruction of ecologies.

We have other plans!

Whilst the primary focus of the Dissent! Network is upon co-ordinating radical resistance to the 2005 G8 Summit, the Network is hoping to achieve far more than merely organising one spectacular day of action. We are hoping to build a lasting anti-capitalist movement in the UK and to strengthen local and global networks of struggle. As one contribution to this process, a number of groups affiliated to the Network, based in the South East of England, are calling for groups and individuals across the country to resist the meeting of the international elite planned to take place at Wilton Park in November.

The Conference commences at 14:30 on Friday 5th November and ends early on Saturday afternoon. We are calling for people to resist the meeting however they see fit. Organise yourselves into small groups, talk about what you can imagine doing, organise your own actions and communicate with others. Up-to-date information and a legal and action briefing will be available on the evening of Thursday 4th November in Brighton, the exact location of this meeting, along with maps of the area and info updates will be available at: www.freewebs.com/shuttheg8 or by calling the Info-Phone: 07837 942373. If you require accommodation in either Brighton or Worthing on the Thursday or Friday night, email: brightonantig8@yahoo.co.uk as soon as possible.
