Events and films on the camp from Anti-G8-Alliance for a revolutionary perspective
Anti-G8-Alliance for a revolutionary perspective
18. Juli 2006
Saturday, 5th august:
Introduction of the alliance
We want to use the mobilization against the G8 in a situation of intensifying
contradictions within society, in order to connect the resistance against capitalist
aggressions within the society and on a global level with the struggle for a
free society. With this mobilization against the G8 summit in Heiligendamm, we
want to introduce revolutionary positions, reach all parts of society and develop
an effective practice which is targeted against capitalism and imperialism.
Delegates of the alliance will introduce our positions, the goals of the mobilization
and propositions for a further cooperation with other groups and alliances.

IT-Security and political militance
How can we on one hand use progress and on the other protect ourselves against
the repressive attacks? The information technology has reformed political life
profoundly: often meetings are set by e-mail or sms, information is hastily taken
from Websites and so forth.
Whether PC, internet or telephone, all these media can and should be used as
a means of revolutionary resistance. But security should neither be neglected
nor should it paralyze activities. In the class struggle, we will have to adjust
our working techniques with these tools to make it suitable to current situations
and the counter-revolution.

The war on information
Before the bombings in military strikes start, people’s minds at the “inner
front” are being targeted. The media tries to establish consent in the
population to a war by arguing, that wars are humanitarian actions for democracy
and human rights. The importance of ruling the information politics is not only
to consider in the context of war, but also in everyday political life. We are
showing the different mechanisms of manipulation By means of the examples of
the Nato-war against Yugoslavia, Bertelsmann, which is a Think-Tank and media
corporation and the consultant company GCS (Greenberg, Carville and Shrum) which
supported the election campaign of neo-liberal candidate Gonzalo Sanchez de Lozada

Imperialism versus Empire
The capitalist globalization marks a worldwide attack of the ruling classes
against the masses: intensified exploitation, wars, pauperization, destruction
of the natural resources of humankind. The effects of this attack are, on an
ideological level, reaching deep into the leftist spectrum. The term of imperialism
and the connected class analysis has been unreflective and rashly disposed in
favour of post modern conceptions. The bestselling book “Empire” by
Negri and Hardt along with its reformist conclusions, bridged a market gap.
We also want to show that Lenin’s theory of imperialism is in any way more
suitable to prepare an understanding of the recent developments of capitalism
and to found a revolutionary perspective.
