... 6th-10th April Lanarkshire.... A chance to form networks of resistance... A chance to plot, conspire, and dream about resistance to the G8... To meet people learn skills, share information, practice direct action, and party together.
Dissent! is a network made up of individuals and groups planning to use creative direct action and civil disobedience to resist the presence of the G8 in the UK. It has no leaders, no membership list, and no paid staff. Ideas for action so far include targeting the oil and war industries, the practical rejuvenation of neglected communities in Scotland, and disruption of the summit itself. Dissent! is acting as a focal point for coordination of resistance to the G8 and for continued radical action against capitalism into the future. The Festival of Dissent! will be the best chance before the Summit arrives to get together, learn skills, share info, plan, and get inspired about protests at the Summit.
