In July 2008, the so-called "G8" heads of the state that monopolize two thirds of the earth’s wealth will gather at Lake Toya in Hokkaido Japan. The Japan based network of anti-authoritarians and anarchists, No! G8 Action, was formed in May 2007. It hopes to bring Japanese and East Asian impetus onto the stage of the global anti-capitalist struggle. The info-tour is part of this effort. The info-tour presentation deals a lot with the particular issues vis-à-vis Japan and East Asia, such as militarization, neo-liberal reforms, free trade, society of control, environment, and minorities such as resident Koreans, Chinese, foreign workers, and the Ainu People, but the common ground of struggling people world over are going to be discussed in the form of problematic interrelation. It lasts about one hour, with time at the end for questions and answers. It employs a power point presentation and screening of related footage.

Our presentation consists of following contents:
- General problems about the G8
- Japan’s relation to the G8
- Introduction to social/political issues in Japan and other Asian countries
- Introduction to activism in Japan and other Asian countries
- About our group: No! G8 Action
- About various projects (symposia, alternative summit, concert events, etc...)
- Action Plans and tactical options for July 2008
- Facilities for foreign visitors
- Japanese police behavior and Immigration situations
- Call for action

26~27 June (Kyoto) Anti-Foriegn Ministers Meetings, Rally and March
28~29 June (Tokyo) Anti-G8 Rally and March
