A Call to Protest the G8

 
Morning Critical Mass Organised for Friday 8th June Morning Critical Mass Organised for Friday 8th June Outrider writes; CRITICAL MASS, Friday 8th June - 8am in the MORNING! Assemble on St. Augustines Parade at 8am sharp to move off when critical mass forms...Why should you be angry?...We all know the terrifying statistics: a million species extinct by 2050, 19 of the 20 hottest years on record since 1980, Greenland and Antarctica melting, droughts, floods, famines. The G8 have had over 30 years to address climate change and only succeeded in providing trillions in subsidies to the very industries that are destroying our planet and our future....While climate chaos effects us all, those on the front line are those already devastated by the cruelty of global capitalism - the poor and disadvantaged. While the G8 looks to the markets to solve the problem by turning emissions into a product that can be bought and sold, they purposely ignore the only effective solution - an end to the consumerist mass-market society....So what are you going to do about it? Buy a wristband, go to a concert, sign a petition, go on an organised mass march? Remember Jubilee 2000? Third world debt is worse than ever. Remember Make Poverty History? It didn’t. Remember Stop the War? We haven’t...The 8th of June International Day of Action Against Climate Change and the G8 has been called by the International Rising Tide Network. This is a call for autonomous, decentralized actions appropriate for your town, city, or local area....This Critical Mass is a present to the working people of Bristol! If well attended, the demonstration could mean big delays in getting to work on a Friday morning, and a perfect excuse for phoning in late - and who but the bosses wouldn’t support that! Spread the word to those you work with, but remember we need the numbers on the ride to make it happen!
