This Is How We Do It: An Anarchist Account of the G8 Actions

  • Posted on: 12 July 2005

<table><tr><td>From the beginning there was no well-thought-out master plan for shutting down the G8 Summit at Gleneagles. In fact, some of us even dubbed the march we were about to embark on "The Suicide March". At three in the morning, a large group of militants dressed in black slipped into the darkness of the night as the first rain of many days dumped down on them. The air was thick with the eerie presence of a thousand determined individuals beginning to walk along the deathly still road. Besides the occasional attempt at a chant the group was quiet, perhaps reconsidering the slim probability of success.</td><td><img src="files/pictures/dissent.jpg"></td></tr></table>
