Showdown in Germany: Resistance to the G8 Continues
Montreal Stop of Canadian Info-Tour

Tuesday, 17 April, 7pm
LOCATION

(((Presentation in English. Whisper translation to French.)))

Although the North American "anti-globalization" movement was displaced
by post-September 11 agendas, the movement in Europe
has continued to evolve and gain momentum.

Kriss Sol is an Amsterdam-based organizer with the Netherlands
component of the "Dissent! Network of Resistance". He will be in Montreal as
part of an info-tour
about the G8 summit taking place in Germany this summer. Kriss will provide
an analysis of the issues, give an overview of
the mobilization against the G8 that is taking place across Europe, and lead
a discussion about the importance of the European movement to North American
organizers. Kriss will also show some short films made for this summer's
anti-G8 mobilization.

RESISTANCE TO THIS SUMMER'S G-8 SUMMIT IN GERMANY

This year, during the first week of June, the G8 leaders will meet in the
German resort of Heiligendamm, close to Rostock. To guarantee the security
of their meeting, the superpowers will surround the resort with a 2-meter
tall and 13-kilometer long security fence. The base of
the fence will be sunk 1 meter deep into the ground. In total, they will
invest 12.5 million Euros in barbed wire and cement.

In the face of capitalism's politics of enclosure, European activists
will draw upon all they've learned since Genoa in order to throw a wrench
in the gears. Combining mass anti-summit initiatives with tactical mobility
and decentralization, the planned actions promise to address the
shortcomings of previous anti-summit protests and to raise the bar for
coordinated resistance.

Showdown in Germany: Resistance to the G8 Continues


Although the North American anti-globalization movement was displaced on the
world stage by post-September 11 warmongering, the movement in Europe has
continued to evolve and gain momentum.

This year, during the first week of June, the G8 leaders will meet for a nice
cup of tea in the German resort of Heiligendamm, close to Rostock. To guarantee
the security of their meeting, the superpowers will surround the resort with a
2-meter tall and 13-kilometer long security fence. The base of the fence will
be sunk 1 meter deep into the ground. In total, they will invest 12.5 million
Euros in barbed wire and cement.

In the face of capitalism’s politics of enclosure, European activists will
draw upon all they’ve learned since Genoa in order to throw a wrench in the
gears. Combining mass anti-summit initiatives with tactical mobility and
decentralization, the planned actions promise to address the shortcomings of
previous anti-summit protests and to raise the bar for coordinated resistance.

What can North American activists learn from the European experience?

Join Kriss Sol – an Amsterdam-based organizer with the Netherlands component of
the "Dissent! Network of Resistance" – as he provides:

- An overview of the anti-G8 mobilization

- An analysis of the issues confronting activists, and

- A summary of the lessons that North American organizers
can learn from the European situation.
