In the spirit of a project declared by the Zaptistas in 1997, everyone with an interest im the independent and alternative coverage of the mobilisations against the G8 Summit, is invited to participate:

"We will make a network of communication among all our struggles and resistances. An intercontinental network of alternative communications against neoliberalism…(and) for humanity ... This intercontinental network of alternative communication will search to weave the channels so that words may travel all the roads that resist…(it) will be the medium by which distinct resistances communicate with one another ... This intercontinental network of alternative communication is not an organizing structure, nor has a central head or decision maker, nor does it have a central command or hierarchies. We are the network, all of us who speak and listen." [Second Declaration of La Realidad for Humanity Against Neoliberalism ]
