Anyone want to be be a local contact for an anti-g8 network

A network of groups has just been set up to prepare resistance to the G8 when they come to the UK in 2005. Would your group like to be a local contact? We aim to cover the whole of these islands by Summer 2005, with public meetings, roadshows and actions happening everywhere.

A gathering in Nottingham in November decided on the name "Dissent! a network of resistance against the G8"; working groups have been set up to cover issues such as publicity, roadshows, meeting logistics, etc. The basic principles of the Dissent! network are autonomy, co-operation and de-centralisation. The next gathering will be in Brighton in late Feb.

If you want your group to be listed as an info-point then please contact the newsletter working group (dissentnewsletter@yahoo.co.uk); this would mean that you're prepared to be a point of contact for people in your area who want to be involved.

If you want the minutes of the nottingham gathering or if you want to be included on the general ResistG8 e-mail list the get in touch with me or the newsletter group.

As the summit approaches we'll get a group together meeting at the centre.

We could do with Stirling and Perth groups if it'll be in Gleneagles...

Hopefully chiller and I will meet up soon.

Realityterrorist got in touch from Aberdeenshire, and I offered to assist his group down here.

Bobby is already doing a lot of legwork in Perth, and making contacts far afield.I think he should be the main contact for other groups.

There's a dissent meeting on Saturday October 23 at the Perth Museum and Art Gallery on George St, from 2-5pm. He organised that, and I believe you can find him every wednesday night in donskis bar. I'm told there are folk from further afield coming to that. My little cell meets the next day,

Anyone is welcome to join us.

Just get in touch.
