With the G8 meeting in a weeks time the protest called by Make Poverty History for Thursday in Dublin is set to be massive.

But with the debt relief programme proposed leaving the majority of developing nations out in the cold, and imposing neo-liberal"conditionalities" on the 18 countries whose unrecoverable debts are to be cancelled, we have to go beyond passively lobbying our rulers to do the right thing. The issue of poverty, starvation and debt is intimately connected to war and arms spending. The US has spent $165 billion so far on the war on Iraq, this is nearly 10,000 times the annual amount the US is expected to contribute over the next decade.

For this reason we are appealing to all our supporters and sypathisers to join the Anti War and Socialist contingent on the protest on Thursday.

We are assembling at 6.00pm at the Hugh Lane Gallery in Parnell Square at 6.00pm on Thursday 30th June. Help us make the anti-war, anti-capitalist contingent as big and as lively as possible by joining us there.

Following the 2001 Genoa protests Red and Black Revolution carried a series of articles in which members of the WSM and a member of NEFAC debated what if any role remained for the Black Bloc. Other contributions are from the South African ZACF. In the run up to the G8 Summit protests in Scotland in July Anarkismo.net presents these articles and related links for debate and discussion.

Published: 29 June, 2005

Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams MP has urged people across Ireland to support the Make Poverty History rally in Dublin on Thursday 30th June at 6.30pm. He said that this rally would send a strong message to G8 leaders meeting in Scotland next week and would help put the issue high on the political agenda in Ireland.

Mr. Adams will be taking part in the Make Poverty History rally in Dublin on Thursday evening and will be accompanied by Martin McGuinness MP, Mary Lou McDonald MEP and TDs Aengus Ó Snodaigh and Sean Crowe.

Story from BBC NEWS:

The Scottish Socialist Party is to take legal action over a move to suspend four of its MSPs for protesting over the G8 summit during a Holyrood debate.

The Scottish Parliament recommended the sanctions after the group carried out a G8 demo inside the chamber on Thursday.

The politicians are to be banned from the parliament throughout September and lose their wages and allowances for the period concerned.

The SSP's leader Colin Fox said the move broke human rights legislation.

Mr Fox and his three parliamentary colleagues, Frances Curran, Rosie Kane and Carolyn Leckie, all took part in the pre-planned protest and were subsequently ordered to leave the chamber.

The short demonstration concerned next week's G8 summit where the socialists claimed parliament had failed to secure the right for protesters to demonstrate outside Gleneagles.

However, Perth and Kinross has since said it was "optimistic" that an agreement could be reached on staging a "peaceful and well-managed" protest in the vicinity of the Perthshire hotel.

Mr Fox said the planned punishment was "out of all proportion" to the action taken by his parliamentary party.

The socialist national convener said: "We were found guilty without being given the opportunity to state our case and we are advised that without due process and the chance to make our defence, the Scottish Parliament has broken basic human rights legislation and natural justice.

"Four MSPs and their support staff are to be deprived of a month's wages for disrupting the parliament for less than an hour.

"The G8 summit has resulted in absolute chaos and disruption across Scotland, roads are blocked off and steel fences erected but when we make a protest in the parliament it is treated as if we have committed a capital offence."

He explained how his party had sought assurances from First Minister Jack McConnell that he would uphold a parliamentary decision in March to uphold the rights of protesters to demonstrate against the G8 leaders at Gleneagles.

He said this had not been forthcoming and the action taken by his party was the only course of action left open in order to get its point across.
