throughout dissent-network and also as an invitation to groups from around
Sheffield to join counter-conference.
Please comment and consent if you like.

...and Justice for all....
A Festival of Resistance and Change
Sheffield: Saturday 11th  to Friday 17th of June 2005.

Sheffield against the G8  invites you to join a week of resistance and
change, of action and reflection around the G8 Justice and Home Affairs
Ministers Meeting 15th to 17th of June. It seems to many of us as an
ideally timed forum for preparation, plotting, creating alternatives in
advance of the G8 Summit in Scotland. Also it seems to be a very important
date to voice our critique. The issues at stake in Sheffield ministerial
meeting are at the core of our concerns about state politics in globalized
capitalism: War on Terror, Migration and Civil Liberties.

...civil liberties at large...
Parallel to the G8 ministerial meeting from 15th to 17th June various
actions and a counter-conference will take place in Sheffield, where in
workshops, panels, film-screenings and discussions, our dissent with the
G8-Politics will be developed and expressed.
These days in Sheffield will be highly policed with thousands of officers
to be expected. Their very presence will prove to what degree state
politics in so-called democratic countries already rely on sheer
deterrence and terror against any possible opposition. Every of those
police-men is signifying the growing fear among the sell acclaimed world
leaders to loose their control. Everyone of us standing up against their
agendas will get us there a bit earlier.

Join the Protest and Resist!
Sheffield against the G8 Network has secured convergence-spaces to house
people from outside Sheffield from Saturday 11th until Saturday 18th June.
If you are panning to come over from far (inside or outside of the UK) to
protest in Scotland against the G8, why not stop by in Sheffield and join
our Protest.
Whether you want to offer some of your skills in workshops, discuss issues
with others in panels, prepare actions for Scotland or show films, play
with your band or DJ, there is space for this during the Festival of
Resistance and Change in Sheffield.

Please get in contact if you are planning to come over, offer workshops or
have questions
