features | 01.07.2005 20:25 | G8 2005

The Clown army, had a press conference today morning, displaying some ridicilus tactics and reading a (not so) silly statement (report | photos | video). Police payed a visit to the Dissent! Info point, but left quickly. Finally the GR organised train arrived in Edinburgh without any problem, and the Dissent! train arrived just before ten pm. There was a small amount of hassle from the police at King's Cross [video/audio]. Photos: [ 1 | 2 | 3 ]

Preparations for the Make Poverty History march are also under way: the anti-capitalist block meeting point has been anounced, and some happy chalking actions is to be expected.

More spaces are now open: In Edinburgh the Dissent! Infospace, featuring talks and workshops, and the Independant Media Centre, as well as the rural eco-village convergence campsite in Stirling. An Edinburgh Council spokesman agreed to remove CCTV at the official G8 camp site [photos] after 150 people set up a camping site at Pilrig Park (report). On the other hand a theatre play called Black Sun Over Genoa [pic] has opened in Edinburgh and will be playing for three nights before it moves to Glasgow. This is a production that looks at the events that took place during the mobilisations against the G8 Summit 2001 in Genoa, Italy.
