G8 chance for us to protest

THE media charm-offensive has begun as our local political class rolls out the the red carpet to the gang of eight – dealers in austerity, state terror and imperialism.

The G8 summit provides a rare opportunity to challenge mainstream political discourse, to debate ideas and struggles and the type of world we want to build.

The challenge is to build a mass movement from below, based on self-management, solidarity and direct action, to strike fear into the ruling class, involving tens of thousands of people, street by street, workplace by workplace.
