g8 bookmakers | 15.07.2005 11:47 | G8 2005
together during the events surrounding the 2005 Gleneagles G8 Summit
We are putting together a collection of reflections by people who also
protested against the G8.
That week of working, living and laughing together reminded us that our
desires and dreams can come true, and we're confident many others had
similar experiences. We want all these voices to be heard.
1. A website. Everything we receive we'll upload here.
2. A 'fast and dirty' book/let which we want to be able to distribute as
quickly as possible. We want it to be ready for summer festivals such as
the big green (beginning of August). We envisage this booklet containing a
selection of shorter stories, as well as photographs and other images,
from individuals and groups: experiences before and
throughout the G8 and also ideas for the future. Possible topics
fundraising and awareness raising events in local areas
the rural convergence
the edinburgh convergence
the glasgow convergence
carnival of full enjoyment
wednesday: A9, M9, edinburgh, glasgow, covert blockades
black block actions
g8 bike ride
Max length of contributions is 500 words: keep 'em snappy. Diary-type
entries are fine, make it accessible, make it inspiring!
Deadline for contributions is Friday 22 July. (Remember, we want to get
this out for the Big Green, do it whilst your feelings are still fresh in
our minds!). Please email your short stories for this issue to
3. A second book or magazine (similar to Days of Dissent or On Fire: The
Battle of Genoa and the Anti-Capitalist Movement). This will also contain
longer, more reflective pieces. We're interested in how
Glenagles (counter-)summit relates to previous summit-mobilisations (and
other struggles in general), what it means/meant for our
'movement of movements', lessons for the future and so on.
This second book/magazine will be published in time for the London
Anarchist Bookfair in October. Deadline for contributions is 10th
Please e-mail contributions to firstname.lastname@example.org
