Wed Jul 6 2005Huge Protest Underway in Scotland
On 7/8, a street party was held on a bridge in Glasgow to celebrate the end of the G8 summit and protest the expansion of the M74 motorway. People who live in the areas that would be affected by an M74 extension have said that the expansion would increase air and noise pollution, contribute to climate change, worsen traffic, expose contaminated land, and split the local community.

7/7 - After the bombings in London that morning, a Vigil Against War and Bombings was held in Edinburgh. (Photos: 1 | 2) Also, activists were gearing up for a demonstration on July 8th in support of Maryam Rajavi, a fighter in the Iranian Resistance Movement, who has come under heavy repression in France.

7/6: Blockades - Movement against the G8 started very early this morning: while the beacons of dissent were still burning in the dark in the Ochil Hills, hundreds of people were making their way out of the Stirling convergence ecocamp 'Hori-Zone' to head for Gleneagles. In Edinburgh there was an attempt to blockade G8 delegates in the Sheraton Grand hotel and the M9 motorway was blocked by a couple of hundred people...all before dawn.

Meanwhile, protesters arrived by bus at Gleneagles, the site of the G8 Summit. Police attempted to dissuade people from going, by telling them the march had been cancelled. Eventually, the buses arrived at Gleneagles and people marched to the fence and tore it down. Those unable to get to Gleneagles marched in Edinburgh. And there were a number of clashes with police in the town of Stirling.
7/5 - About 1000 people demonstrated at the Dungavel Detention Centre, to demand equal rights and free movement for all, and for an end to detention and deportation.
From July 6-8, 2005, the annual G8 summit will be held at Gleneagles Hotel in Scotland. The G8 is a forum of the rulers of the eight most industrialized, wealthy, and powerful states in the world. Every year they meet to discuss how to further their interests, expand their empire, and tighten their grip on every aspect of our lives. This convergence will be "in solidarity with those descending upon the streets of Scotland to face the G8 head on. We act in solidarity with revolutionaries taking to the streets to defend working peoples' lives all around the world..." Read More
