Internationals Against G8

Thursday, April 26th, 2007

After the first meeting during the Global Meeting in Venice (that took place at the end of March 2007), people from various Social Centers (Italy) and people from the Antiauthoritarian Movement (Greece) called the International Meeting during the 3rd G8-Action-Conference in Rostock, Germany.


We met today on the 14th of Ápril, we are people of different territories and countries of Europe. We participate in the third Action Conference against the G8 Summit in Rostock. Several of us took part in the Global Meeting organized on the 31th of Ìarch in Venice, where we began to coordinate on an European level. Facing our committements to participate in the protest and actions against the G8 summit, we want to share some agreements about borders control and freedom of movement.

We state that:

1) All human beings must have a freedom of movement in a Europe and in a world without borders.

2) We refuse any control, repression and ban used by European polices to stop peoples moving toward the protest against the G8, and we reject any classification and discrimination between protesters.

3) We will express solidarity to people facing problems at the borders and we will coordinate efforts to guarantee the right of movement through the first week of June.

4) A political Europe already exists and it’s based on border control and capitalistic economy, instead we are building another Europe of equality, justice and equal rights for all.

5) We call for actions of solidarity on embassies, consulates, Goethe-Institutes, German enterprises all over Europe and the world. In this context we will respect every form of action and protest.

This text has been discussed and supported by participants from Greece, Italy, Poland, Russia, Latvia, Estonia, France, U.K., Sweden, Belgium, Denmark, Czech Republic, Netherlands, U.S.A. and Canada.

We will be everywhere!

So here’s what to do…

  • Register, and ensure you enter your email address correctly
  • If you don’t appear to have received an email with your login details (username & password), check to make sure any spam filters you may have set up aren’t filtering out the email
  • If you still have problems contact mail(at) from the same email address you used to register and you’ll be sent new login details

Apologies for the screw-up, but hey, that’s what computers do.
