The Red and Black Umbrella (57 Clifton Street, Cardiff CF24 1LS) is
preparing to host a two-day meeting of the Stop G8 network. The first day will be a meeting of all involved to discuss and reach decisions on where next for the Stop G8 network.
What is Stop G8?
Stop G8 has existed as a network in the UK since July 2012.
Stop G8 had two aims. The first aim was to organise a week of action
against the G8 summit. The second is to help re-build an anti-capitalist movement in the UK and beyond. There has been a proposal to change the name of the network, as the G8 in the UK has happened (and the next G8 in Western Europe is over a year away).
Some of StopG8 are interested to link up with Stop NATO Cymru, a South
Wales network opposed to the NATO summit in Newport in September 2014.
There will also be discussion and decisions about other future StopG8
This is a two day event and all are welcome (except cops and journos) from the Friday night until Sunday/Monday morning. The Red and Black Umbrella has comfortable sleeping space for up to 20 people.
Creche space is available for kids of all ages, run jointly by a volunteer from Cardiff with experience and a visitor from the network. The meeting will run from 12-5pm on Saturday and Sunday. Email stopg8 [at] riseup.net for further details.
