RESHAPE: an edinburgh based alter-globalisation group

RESHAPE- linking edinburgh with the international struggle against global capitalism

The g8 monolith is coming to Scotland in 2005.

Already, plans are forming to greet the eight glorious leaders of the free world. In Edinburgh, a group by the name of RESHAPE has formed for just this purpose.

We operate around the hallmarks of People's Global Action. These place emphasis upon regionalisation, autonomy and a focus on direct activism as opposed to merely lobbying undemocratic 'representatives'.

We will operate as a means through which people can meet, plan and organise forthcoming actions. It will also work with other groups in the UK which will make up the UK-wide dissent! network.

If you are interested in getting involved, we invite you to join the RESHAPE working group list at http://lists.riseup.net/www/info/dissentedinburgh

If you just want to keep in touch with our activities we will be operating an announcements list, more info at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/reshape

or just drop us a line at reshape(at)riseup.net

For those outwith Edinburgh interested in forming their own local collective please get in touch with us, or just go straight to the national dissent! group mailing list which can be found at http://lists.riseup.net/www/info/resistg82005
