In anticipation that the 2005 G8 Summit will be held at the posh Gleneagles golf resort, we are pleased to announce the formation of the PGA - The Peoples' Golfing Association (not to be confused with the Professional Golfer's Association, or Peoples' Global Action).
The PGA will be holding the Peoples' Open Golfing Tournament during the G8 summit, and plan to be playing golf on the sumptuous greens of Gleneagles during the G8 schmooze-fest. The tournament is open to all freedom loving individuals who reject everything the G8 stands for (except golf). The golfing event promises the opportunity to brush shoulders with influential and dapper anarchists from around the world. It goes without saying that golf skills are not required. In fact, golf skills may even be frowned upon.
The anarchist golf course will feature eight holes, one for each of the rulers in attendance. Hazards will include a large sand-trap in the shape of Iraq, and a pond in the shape of Guantanamo Bay. The PGA golf tour will not be sponsored by Nike. Making divots in the well-manicured and pesticide-fed lawns will be actively encouraged.
The isolated location of the 2005 summit will make it particularly vulnerable to the blockades of protesters. The PGA advocates shutting down the G8 photo-op. We are one of many autonomous groups across the U.K. who form the Dissent Network.
We encourage others to form autonomous golfing blocs for participation in the PGA Gleneagles tournament. The PGA is currently seeking funding for the Gleneagles tournament. If you can rustle up a donation please contact us.
