Midwest Anti-Capitalist Mobilization Against the G8
July 5-7
Kansas City, Missouri

Call for a No Coast anti-war and anti-capitalist mass convergence, July 5-7 of 2005 in Kansas City, Missouri, in solidarity with the mobilization against the Group of Eight G8 summit in Scotland.

From July 6-8, 2005, the annual G8 summit will be held at Gleneagles Hotel in Scotland. The G8 is a forum of the rulers of the eight most industrialized, wealthy, and powerful states in the world. Every year they meet to discuss how to further their interests, expand their empire, and tighten their grip on every aspect of our lives. The consequences affect us all, and their economic success comes at our expense. The G8 exists to manage and maintain a system whose impacts we see all around us: war, genocide, wage slavery, mass poverty, structural racism, famine, environmental destruction, colonial domination in Africa, Asia, & Latin America, social alienation, and accelerating attacks on working people around the world.

But resistance is growing across the globe, in struggles as diverse as they are numerous. And in recent years, everywhere the G8 has met huge movements of people have confronted them, both demanding systemic change and fighting for a global social revolution.

In recognition of the call to action by Peoples' Global Action for Global Days of Action to be held against the G8, we are mobilizing for a regional convergence here in Kansas City. We are calling on everyone ready to fight for a better world - workers, students, revolutionaries, anti-capitalists... - from across the North American Mid West and Great Plains- to converge and manifest their resistance on the streets. A West Coast regional convergence is being called for in San Francisco (check out: anarchistaction.org/g8), and East Coast in Richmond, Virginia.

Our convergence will be in solidarity with those descending upon the streets of Scotland to face the G8 head on. We act in solidarity with revolutionaries taking to the streets to defend working peoples' lives all around the world: the struggle against neoliberal privatization in Bolivia; against transit fare increases in Brazil, Chicago, and San Francisco; against the Minutemen along the border; and against the corporate destruction of the environment.

Global capital will show the full force of its domestic military capabilities in Scotland - we can confront these summits on our own terms, and this mobilization is a step in that direction.

July 5th:
Meet at the convergence space at the MOMO (18th St. & Locust St., downtown), which will be open all day. Spokescouncil at 3 pm.

July 6th:
Rally followed by Anti-Capitalist & Anti-War March.
7 pm; 31st & Broadyway at Penn Valley Park, march to the Board of Trade.

July 7th:
Critical Mass. 5:30 pm; Acme Bikes (17th St. & Oak St.) Ride to government district downtown.

Food Not bombs will be feeding throughout.

Housing will be available.

Sorry about that, the convergence space is at 19th and locust, not 18th and locust.

This looks awesome. It's really good to see that radicals are organizing here in KC...there's way too little of that.

Right on! The current war, our economic situation and the ills all over the world are directly tied to the G8 and this is just another very important facet of resistance to capitalism and imperialism. This kind of reistance must be made. I would encourage everyone in KC who is opposed to the things the G8 stands for to make this demo a memorable one; one where we fought the good fight and came together to say, "enough!"

A large anti-capitalist carnival throught our streets of KC.....good stuff!
