Dissent! is a network of individuals and groups planning to use creative direct action and civil disobedience to resist the presence of the G8. Dissent! has no leaders, no paid staff and no membership list. Focuses for action so far include targeting the oil and war industries, the practical rejuvenation of neglected communities in Scotland and the
sustained disruption of the summit itself. Dissent! is acting as a focal point for coordination of resistance to the G8 and for continued radical action against capitalism into the future. The Festival of Dissent! will be the best chance before the Summit arrives to get together, learn
skills, share info, plan, and get inspired about protests at the Summit.
Workshops will include
* Planning action at the G8 * Direct action training * Background on the G8 * Consensus decision making * Blockading * Hill walking and navigation * Corporate involvement in the G8 * Scottish law and legal training *
Medical training * CIRCA and much more.
