A presentation about the Group of Eight leading industrial countries, on the eve of their summit in June 2002. This is an excellent summary of current events and how they all tie together.

From the Fourth New England Anarchist Bookfair, Northeastern University, Boston, MA, on May 1, 2002. Part of the Festival del Pueblo 2002

In this presentation, Blake from Montreal describes the state of the world on the eve of the upcoming G8 summit. He describes the agenda of this meeting of the seven richest countries (plus Russia), and how this agenda relates to "free trade" in the Western Hemisphere, the Terror War, new capitalist plans for Africa, resistance in Latin America, and the global justice movement. This is an excellent summary of current events and how they all tie together.

Related presentations are also available online thanks to a speaking tour by the CLAC. (See ) "CLAC" is the French acronym for "Anti-Capitalist Convergence". During April, several of their members toured southeastern Canada and the northeastern U.S. to explain the goals of the "Group of Eight". This is in anticipation of popular opposition during the G8 summit in Kananaskis, Alberta, Canada in late June 2002.
