Join the G8 protests
The G8 are eight, we are billions! Make capitalism history! Make socialism our future!
George Bush and Tony Blair will be in Scotland to take part in the discussions of the capitalist club, the G8, between 6-8 July.
Since 1998 this undemocratic organisation has been facing mass demonstrations opposing the way capitalism runs the world. You have all heard about Seattle, Genoa, Evian... where hundreds of thousands of young people and workers took to the streets to protest against war, poverty and exploitation.
The government realise the demonstrations in July will be huge, and are trying to intimidate potential protesters to stop them attending. Gleneagles and the surrounding areas where the G8 will be held will resemble a fortress. But despite this, ordinary people from all over the world will travel to Scotland this summer.
We think that only a mass socialist movement will be able to defeat capitalist policies and build another society, a socialist one. If you want to join International Socialist Resistance in coming to the G8 or to participate in our international youth camp, from 2 July onwards, then contact us!
Join us for the 2 July demo in Edinburgh - transport from London around £30.
Join the international youth camp - transport and accommodation around £80.
