*No Fear: info-evening against repression*
In the final discussion evening of StopG8 Week, we want to bring people together again to think deeper about one crucial topic: repression, and how to fight against it. Whenever we try to take control of our own lives, the powerful will respond with repressive measures that are intended to prevent us from doing so. Repression works through racism, sexism and classism and comes in many forms: police violence, prisons, surveillance, border controls and so on. Repression is also the way we are taught to be afraid and submissive, and to distrust and attack each other.
In the face of repression, our main weapons are self-determination and solidarity. Solidarity is a bridge between individuals and groups facing repression, breaking our isolation and segregation. Solidarity means learning about and from each other and supporting each other in the face of state attacks. Solidarity means creating one common struggle.
