For Freedom of Movement and Freedom To Protest!
On the 5th of July 2008, people all around the world will protest
against the G8 summit 2008 in Japan. Globalisation has created huge
movements of people to the centres of capitalism. However whilst capital
- money and commodities - has been granted ever-expanding
freedom of movement, the movement of workers as migrants is subject to
increasingly complex and brutal systems of control.
We are calling for a protest against the UK Border Agency.
It is time to join forces, for freedom of movement, the freedom to
protest and equal rights for all !
