Sun May 30 2004G8 Meeting Means Repression for Protest Organizers
Sun May 30 2004Group of 8 to Meet in Georgia, Protests Limited
From June 8-10, 2004 the leaders of the world's largest and richest industrialized nations (Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States), who are known collectively as the Group of 8 or G8, will meet at Sea Island, Georgia in the US. At the meeting, Bush and company will discuss the war on Iraq, terrorism, the global economy, and the policy in the Middle East. They will enjoy such luxuries as golf courses, fine food and exotic hotels. Protest organizers have been planning their events for months, but have had to change many of their arrangements because of the repression that is coming from the government. Protests in Georgia in early June will cover a range of issues, such as reparations for Black farmers who were forced off of their land after the US Civil War, and for the millions of Africans who are affected by HIV/AIDS; creating alternatives- for example, there will be a counter-conference called The Other Economic Summit (TOES) in Brunswick, and a Fair World Fair; Peace Marches; and other activities. Some events that were scheduled for Savannah have been moved to other cities because of intimidation tactics used by the police.
West Coast G8: People in the Bay Area are organizing several events during the days of the G8 summit. On June 8th at 5PM in UN Plaza West Coast G8 and Reclaim the Streets will throw a Mutant Street Party to "To UNwelcome the Biotech Conference to San Francisco (June 3-9), toast the death of the G8, and dance for Mutant Freedom Now!"
