The G8 are the world’s eight richest and most
powerful nations: the USA, Japan, Canada, France,
Germany, Italy, Russia, and the UK.
They have met annually since the oil crisis of 1975
to discuss issues of importance to global capital
such as trade, migration and security. This year’s
summit will focus on debt, Africa and climate
There has been growing international concern,
however, that these summits form part of an elite
decision-making process, which actually serves
only the interests of the rich and exploits people
and the environment.
Therefore, G8 summits have in recent years
become a focal point for protest, resistance and
proactive initiatives from a wide variety of
individuals and organisations.
The public meeting aims at providing answers to
many questions relating to the G8, but above all to
stimulate debate and ideas for a creative response
to the G8 summit starting in our local communities!
Bring family and friends!
