The Call Out:

Fwd: On June 26th 2010 The G20 Invaded Toronto to plan the austerity and war agenda that we are seeing today. Toronto was militiarized, grassroots groups infiltrated and mass arrests and criminalization carried out.

Three Years later one can see the impact of the decisions taken at this meeting where these unelected criminals conspired to rob the wealth of the people, topple Governments, and entrench a system of war, mass murder and plunder.

This June the G8 is planning to meet in Enniskillen co. fermanagh in occupied Ireland, where they will entrench there system of Austerity and colonialism.

As we speak the state apparatus of the occupation is planning to use this event to intensify the criminalization of the people’s just resistance to the austerity agenda and further entrench British occupation.

During the Olympic Torch Run, the PSNI/RUC, foot soldiers of British imperialism, under the guise of security, used the event to kick in doors and terrorize nationalists and Republicans in Derry until the youth of Derry rose up and resisted.

During the G8, in the name of the war on terror, these same forces will be attacking and rounding up political people who demand the right to determine their own destiny, while protecting the real terrorists who have orchestrated assassinations of democratically elected government leaders like Salvador Allende, carried out coups, invaded sovereign nations and robbed the wealth of the people for profit.

This June let us show the youth and people of the Occupied Six Counties that they do not stand alone. Let us unite to oppose the agenda of austerity and war imposed on the world by The G8.

No To Austerity!!!

No To Criminalization of people’s just demands for
self determination!!!!

British Death Squads out of Ireland!!!!

Free The Political Prisoners!!!!!

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
