Adbusters Issues New Call to Action: Occupy Chicago for G8/NATO Summit

Occupy Chicago

 

The Occupy Wall Street movement traces its origin to a call to action in the Vancouver-based magazine Adbusters.

Now, Adbusters has issued a Call to Action to Occupy Chicago for the G8/NATO summit this coming May:

Hey you redeemers, rebels and radicals out there,

Against the backdrop of a global uprising that is simmering in dozens of countries and thousands of cities and towns, the G8 and NATO will hold a rare simultaneous summit in Chicago this May. The world’s military and political elites, heads of state, 7,500 officials from 80 nations, and more than 2,500 journalists will be there.

And so will we.

On May 1, 50,000 people from all over the world will flock to Chicago, set up tents, kitchens, peaceful barricades and #OCCUPYCHICAGO for a month. With a bit of luck, we’ll pull off the biggest multinational occupation of a summit meeting the world has ever seen.

NO TO NATO: PROTESTS

MAY 19 1pm, US embassy, Grosvenor Square, London WC1
Protest: Troops out of Afghanistan - Don't Attack Iran - No intervention in the Middle East
Stop the War and CND has called this protest to support the US movement and to demand an end to NATO's disastrous policies.

May 19/20: Thousands of people will be demonstrating in Chicago on the weekend  as NATO officials gather
for a crucial conference.

Military action against Iran will be high on NATO's agenda. New big power negotiations with Iran show that popular concern about an attack is having an
impact. But still the right in the US and Israel favour an attack. For Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, Iran is 'an existential threat'. The Republican
leadership in the US is unanimously in favour of 'tough action'.

Pressure for NATO military intervention in Syria is growing. NATO is masquerading as a champion of democracy in Syria, despite the fact that NATO
countries are backing dictators across from Bahrein and Saudi to Yemen. The West is already funding the opposition in Syria. Direct military intervention
will inflame the fighting; its only aim will be to increase the Western powers' grip on the region.

The Afghan disaster will also be discussed in Chicago. Though the war is clearly lost, occupying forces are set to stay in Afghanistan for at least two
more years. Keeping NATO troops in place will inevitably lead to more atrocities and destruction and as ex diplomat Carne Ross argued recently, make
a negotiated peace much more difficult. The threat of a further war is growing.

 spread the word.

GALWAY ALLIANCE AGAINST WAR (GAAW) PROTEST OUTSIDE GOVERNMENT TD HOME IN GALWAY
Sunday 10th June 1pm Tuam Road, Riverside entrance.
contact 087 9159787

In response to the raid by the Gardai Special Branch on the home of GAAW member & spokesperson, Niall Farrell, on Thursday last, Galway’s local peace group intends to protest outside the homes of government TDs in Galway beginning tomorrow, Sund...ay. During the raid on Mr Farrell’s home 3 computers were seized, one of which is urgently needed by Dr Farrell - Mr Farrell’s wife - for her work.
The family home of Labour TD Derek Nolan will be targeted at 1pm tomorrow.

Mr Farrell told the media that the raid on his home was “deeply political”:
“This was a political raid on my family’s home, it was a direct attack by the government on the peace movement, which has consistently opposed for a decade Ireland’s complicity in the illegal “war on terror”- a war that has led to the killing of more that 1million innocent people. I wish to make it clear that we will not allow the government parties to intimidate us. If they think they can use their political police to violate the sanctity of our homes, then we will bring our protests to the doorsteps of the politicians in Galway West whose government has sanctioned this assault on our human rights.
This political harassment is ominously reminiscent of the FG/Labour coalition of the 1970s.
We would call on people who support our right to peaceful protest to assemble tomorrow at 1pm at the entrance to the Riverside Estate on the Tuam Road Galway, to march to the family home of Labour TD Derek Nolan.

“We would remind people in Galway, city and county, that although the Gardai are under-resourced valuable police time is wasted on harassment of political opponents of the government.

Regular vigil to protest against the US military use of Shannon Airport and the failure to investigate and end rendition flights.

The vigil will take place from 2pm to 3pm on Sunday 10th June at the usual place -  just before the airport entrance (gather at the small roundabout).

The US military continue to use Shannon Airport to move their troops  to and from the failed occupation of Afghanistan. Ireland still supports the most militarized nation on earth, the US, and Shannon ferries weapons and troops (maybe even killer drones) to its warzones. If another war - like an ill conceived invasion of Iran - were to take place, Shannon and Ireland would almost certainly be involved. We need to continue our protests and to ensure this does not happen.
