G8: Hard core "anarchists" = ochlarchists, getting the Brown Card

Thousands of protesters are set to take part in a Make Poverty History march in Edinburgh, as musicians perform in Live 8 concerts around the globe (02.07.2005). Police believe up to 120,000 people could join the march, aiming to press home their message to G8 leaders. </td><td><img src="files/pictures/red_bl_small.jpg"></td></tr></table>Saturday's march is one of a number of events planned in the run-up to Wednesday's G8 summit at Gleneagles, when campaigners hope world leaders will make a commitment to tackle poverty in Africa. The events also coincide with the series of Live 8 concerts being held on Saturday in cities around the world, including London. The concerts will span nearly 24 hours, with the first having started in Tokyo at 0600 BST. Organised by Live Aid founder Bob Geldof, they will call for more aid for Africa, debt cancellation and fairer trade.

Anarchist statement on the London bombings

<table><tr><td>As social anarchists and libertarian communists, we deplore the horrific attacks on innocent people this morning in London. We express our deepest sympathy to anyone affected by the blasts. We condemn the use of violence against ordinary people and the perpetrators of the bombings whether they be Islamists or anyone else. </td><td><img src="files/pictures/britain_explosion_small.jpg"></td></tr></table>Terrorist actions are completely at odds with any struggle for a freer, fairer society and never help oppressed people in any part of the globe. Instead violence against civilians is a tool of states and proto-states every bit as brutal as the ones they profess to oppose.
