Against the G8 Summit in June 2007
Precarious of every country, let’s march to Heiligendamm near Rostock!
Against the precarisation of our lives and our jobs!
The more wealth is produced in Europe the more the number of people
living in precarity increases. Now we’ve had more than three decades of
mass long term unemployment which is now a fact of daily life for
millions of men and women.
The G8 are illegitimate!
As every year, the closed » club « of the G8 which brings together the
leaders of the seven wealthiest countries as well as Russia, will meet
to decide the future of the planet. These » masters of the world « will
be meeting in Heiligendamm, a rich seaside resort near Rostock in one of
the poorest regions of Northern Germany, from the 6th to the 8th of June.
The G8 at this time is as illegitimate as it could be.
The German government which is welcoming the G8 in June is also ending its presidency of the European Union. In taking the role of host to the G8, it wants to relaunch the constitutional process rejected by the French and the Dutch. The total deregulation of public services like those previewed by the Bolkestein directive would be incorporated into the constitutional treaty as well as rearmament which would become a constitutional obligation for the member states.
From everywhere in Europe, let’s march together to Heiligendamm for the equality of social rights everywhere
Against all forms of the precarisation of our lives and our jobs there is but one solution: equality of rights for everyone
To express with strength these requirements, the marches will be leaving in the middle of May from the four corners of Europe, to converge in Germany on the weekend of the 26th -the 27th of May 2007; they will then join up with the of German Groups to arrive in Rostock on the 1st of June to participate in the big demonstration at the opening of the G8 on the 2nd of June, and in the counter summit from the 3rd of June. There will be an assembly of the precarious where the precarious and have-nots will gather...
Against precarity, international solidarity !
