From The Socialist newspaper, 6 May 2005

Protest at the G8 summit

Make capitalism history - make socialism our future!

THIS JULY, the G8 - the bosses' club - will meet in Scotland, under the presidency of the British government. We call on you to join the counter-demonstrations in Edinburgh and Gleneagles.

Zena Awad, International Socialist Resistance (ISR)

The leaders of the G8 nations support the occupation of Iraq. Millions have demonstrated against the war and occupation but the leaders of the richest nations on the planet are only interested in backing big business and its hunger for oil.

The African continent has been devastated over decades by the capitalists. Their imperialist policies have robbed Africa of its resources and impoverished the majority of the population. We believe only a struggle by the African working class and poor for democratic control of their resources offers a way out.

Millions of young people in Britain and Europe want to do something about the plight of the workers and poor in Africa and throughout the world. The response to the tsunami appeal put the G8 leaders to shame. The spontaneous outpouring of solidarity by people in Western Europe and the USA surpassed their miserly offerings.

Events organised against the G8, like in Genoa or in Evian, have seen mass demonstrations against the capitalist system and its hypocritical leaders. Gleneagles won't be an exception. Join us to demonstrate, to show that another world is needed.
