Richmond puppet In addition to the West Coast Anti-Capitalist Mobilization Against the G8 on the evening of Friday, July 8th, there were two other U.S. actions organized by Anarchist Action in solidarity with the mobilization against the Group of Eight (G8) summit in Scotland. The East Coast action was held in Richmond, Virginia on the afternoon of July 8th, and the Midwest action was held in Kansas City on Wednesday, July 6th.

These principles inevitably lead to environmental degredation, the erosion of worker's rights and social stratification among the poorest of the poor. Read More
