On September 20th at 8:00 PM, there will be a screening of NYC
Indymedia footage from the 2005 G8 protests at the Times Up space at
49 E. Houston St. The screening will be followed by a reportback
from individuals who attended the protests and an update on actions
planned for the September 24th protests in Washington, DC.

During July of 2005, the G8 (Group of Eight, most industrialized
nations) summit was held at Gleneagles in Perthshire, Scotland.
Thousands of protestors from around the world showed up to disrupt
the summit. Actions ranged from a gigantic march organized by a
coalition called Make Poverty History (the largest march in Scottish
History) to roaming blockades organized by the Dissent! Network, a
network of international anti-authoritarian groups.

US activists who went to join in with international activists will
discuss the successes and failures of the protests. There will also
be a discussion of if similar tactics should or should not be
employed at demonstrations in the United States. Following the
screening and discussion, there will be an update on plans that are
developing for the upcoming September 24th protest in Washington, DC.
