Reshape was one of many groups organising in response to the G8 Summit in Scotland
The continual attacks on working class people mean that more and more of us are getting drawn into struggles to defend the little we have in the way of services, freedom and spending power. Each new reform turns out to be a way to further control the public while offering no actual improvement - except to the bureaucrats who run society. But while our struggles remain isolated it is easier to pick us off one by one. Political parties and trade unions have shown themselves incapable of bringing our struggles together - they just create a new layer of bureaucrats to manage our struggles. However the mass mobilisation of protesters at the G8 meeting of the world's top leaders will provide an opportunity to come together with activists not just from across Britain, but from across the world. Together we can then prevent the G8 leaders from meeting to plan our further exploitation.
The only way we can defend ourselves from the erosion of our public services, the erosion of our civil liberties and the erosion of our standard of living is by organising against those that repress and exploit us at a local and global level. We send a message to our rulers that we do not consent to be ruled. However, for it to gain its true significance it needs to be accompanied by action. Resist the G8 at it's summits and join the international mobilisation against international capitalism!
