Italy: Italian anarchist Genoa/G8 declaration

News ArchiveSubmitted by Chuck0:

Call to the anarchist and libertarian movement
for a visible, autonomous presence, whose
reasons for opposition to the globalization
process might be expressed in an understandable

Public demonstration in Genoa for June 9 h. 3

The G8 will meet on July 20 to 22, in Genoa,
Italy. This meeting of the top-powerful is a
spectacular survey of the tendencies towards a
never before seen concentration of world's
economic and political powers. The so-called
globalization processes go on dividing the world
in rich and poor, starving the population of
entire continents; pushing to margins, inside
single nations, growing layers of population;
rendering precarious all forms of job;
eliminating any form of social guarantee where
it existed. All this in the name of profit and
capitalist accumulation, without norms or
bounds. Meanwhile social control is multiplied,
both inside single states or internationally
repressive apparatuses, police and military,
grow stronger. We must oppose all this.

We used to be and are bearers of an anti-state,
non reformist, internationalist point of view, a
proposition to reconstruct unity and the
fighting capacity of the exploited and working-
classes. In this occasion once more we affirm:

- The impossibility to democratize national or
transnational political and economic organisms
that as a goal hold intensification of
exploitation of work and resources;

- Incompatibility in these as in other cases
between the interests of the exploiters and
those of the exploited;

- Invariance in the functions of the state while
it apparently renounces to the control of
economy, keeps and even strengthens social,
police and military control;

- Knowledge that "Rights" exist on paper only
and are worth nothing if not supported by a
favorable balance of strength.

Therefore the need to fight:

- For liberty to circulate in a world without

- Against militarism, war and prisons;

- For a generalized reduction of working time;

- For the defense of acquired social guaranties
avoiding to re-propose the welfare model that
ended in state-bound workers movement with the
aim of reaching a quality of life with dignity
for everyone.

With this outlook we propose a path of
opposition to the G8, in which the libertarian
movement can express the consistency and
strength of its statements.

Consequently, we propose:

- a nation-wide public demonstration in Genoa
for June 9, Saturday, to ensure visibility and
the possibility to express our contents;

- coordinated actions of mobilization in all
localities where possible, for July 14, Sat.

- We support a call for a general strike of
grass-roots syndicalism on July 20, Friday;

- Organize a significant libertarian presence
during the days of the summit, being reference
point to comrades coming from elsewhere in Italy
or abroad. We intend to boycott the summit
claiming in the streets our right to freely
demonstrate in all needed forms of social fight
and direct action, to give visibility and
consistence to the radical libertarian option;

- Verify the feasibility of an International
Conference on the themes of globalization during
the days immediately following the G8.

All expressions of social antagonism who
recognize themselves in the spirit of this call
are invited to participate concretely to the
construction of this path.

We will meet next in Milano, Sunday 27 May 10
