Sorry for this not exactly SchNEWS intrusion into your in-box, you
know we wouldn't do it if it wasn't important... We've had the
following special bulletin from Dissent. Please read and then
proceed immediately to their website and buy your tickets.

This week's SchNEWS will follow shortly.


Resist the G8 Summit SchNEWS Special Appeal!

As the 2005 G8 Summit approaches, SchNEWS suggests that its
readers help out with the mobilisation in the following way>>>>

>>GET on board on the Resist G8 Trains!

The G8 Summit takes place in Gleneagles, Scotland from the 6th-8th
July 2005. However, there will be many events, demos and direct
actions around Scotland in the days leading up to the summit. The
South East Assembly has chartered two trains to take people up to
the protests against the G8 summit. This will also include the
Make Poverty History march on July 2nd in Edinburgh. Every day
there will be different protests at nuclear bases (Faslane July
4th), detention centres (Dungavel July 5th) and several other
initiatives which need support. The trains will depart early
morning from London Kings Cross and arrive in Edinburgh where
accommodation (bring sleeping bags and tents!) will be provided
for free.



( All trains departs LONDON Kings Cross 7am arriving EDINBURGH

LONG STAY // Friday 1st July RTN Saturday 9th July

All tickets cost £50, with the view of providing a concessionary

from Eastern Europe. If possible, please make a donation to
contribute to this concession.

Finalised times for departure and arrival are subject to network

arriving Edinburgh at 1pm-ish.

All tickets are return but for those wanting a one-way ticket
there will be an option to sell/donate your return journey at the
convergence & camp sites.

If you have any spare cash then please add a donation to help a
