Daily Advisory for the Week of Protest Against G8

At the beginning of June 2007, the heads of state and government of the
eight largest economic powers will come together for the G8 Summit in
Heiligendamm near Rostock. As an act of civil disobedience, activist
intend to blockade the summit in a clear rejection of the neoliberal
politics of the G8, which dramatically increase the gap between the rich
and poor worldwide.

Rostock-Laage airport, which functions as a civilian and military
airport, is part of the infrastructure of the G8 Summit Conference and
the militaristic policies of the G8 governments. Here the next war is
being prepared with Eurofighter military jets. From here the military
jets will soon fly to the "Bombodrom“ bombing range, and here is where
the participants in the G8 conference plan to fly in. As part of a day
of action against militarism and war, activists will express their
opposition to war and to the G8 through many forms of protest and active
resistance near the airport.

At the beginning of June 2007, the governments of the seven most
important industrialized countries and Russia will meet for the „G8
Summit“ at the Baltic seaside resort of Heiligendamm, Germany. In recent
years a rising tide of international resistance against this
self-appointed informal world government and its agenda of neoliberal
globalization has forced it’s meetings into further secluded areas,
employing security forces of historical proportion.
