The UK will host the 2013 G8 summit at County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland,
on 17-18 June. Stop G8 is a group formed to work towards a mass
mobilisation of protest centred around the week of the summit, on a range
of issues as wide as the G8′s influence – austerity, inequality, war,
unfair trade, the environment, and other varieties of global capitalist
Following similar meetings in Brighton, Birmingham and Nottingh
am, there will be discussions and workshop groups in Bristol on 8 & 9
December. These meetings will discuss plans for action against the G8
across the UK and act as a common resource for any groups planning
actions, and need as many people as possible to come and contribute. All
are welcome (except police and journalists).
Meetings on both days are at Kebele Social Centre (14 Robertson Road,
Easton, BS5 6JY). The main meeting, discussing planning and strategy will
be on Saturday and workshop groups will be on Sunday. All meals £3
donation if affordable.
11am – breakfast and pre-meeting talks
1pm – meeting starts
7pm – meeting ends, dinner served. We will have short films / maybe live
music after – recommendations for short films to show would be welcomed.
Sunday at Kebele:
10am – breakfast
12pm – meeting starts
4pm – close meeting to ensure those who have to travel long distances home
can do so.
6.30pm – dinner
For anyone coming from further away, there will be space at Kebele to stay
the night on Saturday – just let us know, and bring a rollmat and a
sleeping bag! We’re hoping to have a social night on Saturday, bring
musical instruments etc if you like, but we need to be quiet after 10pm
out of consideration for the neighbours. Kebele has disabled access and
accessible downstairs toilets.
