The G8 summit.

Does anyone have any info on the events at the Scottish G8 summit?

Any anarchist action up there, as I really don't want to go along with the populist/reformist bandwagon of the SWP/GR/Bob 'fucking' Geldof.

Also, I have next to NO money, any tips on free accomodation and travel?

http://www.anarkismo.net/newswire.php?story_id=699 has a listing put together by an Irish anarchist who will be there and who also wants to meet up with others.

Getting there free may be difficult unless you are willing to hitch but otherwise locate the Dissent crowd who are aiming to provide free accommodation and I think food. On the travel thing I know some Dissent groups have funds to subsidise those with no/little money.

While I'm here I'm stuck at home for it but I want to do liveish audio interviews for Anarkismo.net. Anyone going with a phone that would be willing to be interviewed (I'll call you so it shouldn't cost anything). I want people for the minor events and the travelling up (particularly on the train) as well as for the major protests. PM me if your interested.

Hehe, I looked at the SWP/GR 'tickets' to the G8.

£75!!!!!!!!!!

WHAT THE FUCK!

Is it any wonder this lot of well of lecturers and middle class types NEVER attract the pennyless unemployed/working class types like myself.

You would think that with all their money they could at least provide funds to help people to get to the G8. It is as if they want to put people off from coming.

Prehaps they should ask 'comrade' Galloway to put forward some of his £60,000 a year wage (from the taxpayers anyway) towards paying for peoples travel. This should not be a problem for the SWP's 'comrade' in that talking shop of a parliament as he didn't even follow the leninist 'tradition' of a MP on a workers wage!

cheers arnacho communist this is why there has to be a strong left working class presence telling the middle class parasites of swp and make poverty history to fuck off direct action works hopefully there will be strong working class arnachist presence.

Not one of the left assholes elected in Dail Eireann Dublin has made any contribution so that people who are unemployed could attend. no doubt these elected assholes will be jumping on the make poverty history protest Thursday 30th June Dublin

Class war is every where
