G8 Summit in Heiligendamm, GermanyCall to International Demonstration in Rostock, June 2, 2007At the beginning of June 2007, the governments of the seven most important industrialised countries and Russia will meet for the ‘G8 Summit’ at the Baltic seaside resort of Heiligendamm. The ‘Group of 8′ (G8) is an institution without legitimacy. Nevertheless, as a self-appointed informal world government, they make decisions which affect the whole of humanity. The policies of the G8 stand for a neoliberal globalisation and deregulation, economic policies oriented towards the capital returns of international financial investors and companies.• Every five seconds, a child dies somewhere in the world from hunger. More than 800 million people are chronically malnourished. Primarily responsible are unjust world trade policies, forwarded by the rich industrialised countries within the G8 and other international institutions.• Despite the whole-hearted promises of the G8 Summit at Gleneagles in 2005, until now only a small proportion of the debt of Southern countries has been cancelled.• Through their promotion of liberalisation and privatisation, the G8 have not only increased poverty in the global South, but also in the industrialised countries. The worldwide plundering of raw materials and other natural resources is being accelerated.• At the same time as the rich industrialised countries seal themselves off from refugees and migrants, those who nevertheless arrive are illegalised and exploited as cheap labourers without rights.• The G8 states are the biggest destroyers of the climate. They are alone responsible for 43% of worldwide CO2 emissions as well as being in favour of a renaissance of nuclear energy, which we decidedly reject.• The G8 states are responsible for 90% of worldwide weapons exports and a new era of war for raw materials. They are the leaders of a world order based on war, which leads to migration, displacement, new hate and violence in many countries.The world shaped by the dominance of the G8 is a world of war, hunger, social divisions, environmental destruction and barriers against migrants and refugees. At our mass demonstration on 2 June 2007 in Rostock, we want to protest against this and show the alternatives. Together with millions of people around the world we say: Another World Is Possible!• For the immediate cancellation of illegitimate debt and comprehensive debt relief for the countries of the global South!• Against the sale of public goods and services – for equal social rights and standards worldwide!• For a speedy and radical transfer to renewable energies! Dangerous climate change and further wars for oil and gas reserves can only be prevented through a significant rise in energy efficiency and the transfer to a sustainable economy.• For the immediate and permanent abandonment of nuclear energy and for complete worldwide nuclear disarmament!• For the showing of solidarity with, and the living together with equal rights, of all people – against every form of racism and fascism!• For the overcoming of walls and borders! Against detention camps and deportation!• For a peaceful world! End the military imposition of economic and power-political interests through the G8 states!Globalisation in the interests of the majority of people requires a fair relationship between industrialised and developing countries, and means freedom, justice, social security, democracy and the conservation of the planet’s natural resources for the next generation.Such an alternative globalisation will not result from exclusive and insular summit meetings, but rather from below out of the global movement of people and initiatives who stand up for another, better world. This global movement will make itself heard through numerous actions and events during the G8 Summit. At the International Demonstration on 2 June 2007 in Rostock, we will make the size, strength and diversity of our colourful and broad protests visible.<a href="http://dissent-archive.ucrony.net/dissentnetwork/node/1998.html" rel="nofollow">dissent-archive.ucrony.net/dissentnetwork/node/1998.html</a>*+--------+| TAGS |+--------+G8 Heiligendamm Demo Rostock "Make Capitalism History" "Another World is Possible" ows Capitalism KapitalismusAntikapitalismus Profit Widerstand Protest

  • Before we move on to the collection status, I wanted to show this video clip, an example of how viewing livestream footage of an event can change one’s perceptive of it after only learning about it from mainstream media reports. And as you are watching this, pay attention to the quality of the video, I’ll talk about it later in the presentation. * Play VideoI don’t know about you but when I heard about the midnight raid on Zuccotti Park - cops effectively kicking out protestors and destroying the small tent city they created - I imagined a scene a lot more noisy and active than the eerie disquiet found in much of the livestream footage I viewed as part of this assessment.The main difference between livestream and most other kinds of broadcast video is artlessness. Streamers are only interested in capture footage, as much of is as possible, with little or no applied aesthetic, which means there are no producers, graphic designers, music and little editing contouring the output to arguably a presentation that is truthy at best. While the material is unpolished and sometimes hard to watch, it is also largely unaltered and provides a unique cultural output that lies somewhere in between media journalism and home movie making. It’s the Zapruder film has evolved into a style of journalism. So we know what they do and why it is important, now what format is the material on and what are the preservation risks.
