Fifth and Sixth Anti-G7 Organization Assemblies

Saturday, May 12, 2018 - 13:00 to 17:00
Centre social Centre-Sud (1710 Beaudry)

The next two general assemblies of the RRAG7 will take place on Saturday, April 7th and Saturday, May 12th. Both assemblies will start at 1PM and will be held at the Centre social Centre-Sud (CSCS), 1710 Beaudry (near the Beaudry metro station).

The objective of the Réseau de résistance anti-G7 (RRAG7) is to denounce the imperalist, colonialist and anti-envrionmentalist nature of the G7 summit which will take place on June 8-9th 2018 at La Malbaie. The objective of this summit is not to resolve the coming climatic catastrophe, but to maintain the hegemony of the G7 countries over our crumbling planet. The agenda might sound progressive, but experience shows that these beautiful speeches will lead to nothing beneficial.

After all, the French government will not defend workers; Macron, the French president, has already made a name for himself by pushing forward drastic measures which weakens the already difficult situation of French youth. The German government will not defend the social net. Merkel, the German chancellor, repeated many times that Europe was already spending too much money to help the most vulnerable, in order to justify the harsh measures taken against Greece and Spain. And it is certainly not the Trump administration who will defend women, the environment and immigrants. The reputation of the American orange monster is well established. We are no better in Canada, where Trudeau still supports the backward immigration and environmental policies imposed by his predecessor, Harper. We can see the results when he limits migrant numbers, expels many others, and gives the right of way to more pipelines!

It is then up to us to remind their duty toward all the peoples of the world, toward all of us. And to remind them that each ounce of their power is given to them simply because we let them. And to remind them that we can remove our support at any time.

That is why the general assembly of the RRAG7 calls for an anticapitalist gathering against the G7. Since most of the real negotiations will take place in the city of Quebec and that the city of La Malbaie will be hardly accessible, the general assembly of the RRAG7 calls for a convergence toward the city of Quebec between Thursaday night (June 7th) and Saturday night (June 9th).

A common and festive protest against the G7, anti-imperialist, anti-patriarchy, anti-colonialist, anti-racist, anti-capitalist, against extraction and against frontiers is called for Thursday night, June 7th in Quebec city. The objective of the general assembly of the RRAG7 is to make this protest accessible and open to all, ideally with the cooperation of other collectives.

The general assembly calls for a day of perturbation of the activities of the G7 for the day of Friday, June 8th. In order to launch this day, the RRAG7 will organize a perturbation activity in the region of Quebec on the morning of Friday, June 8th.

We can let the leaders of the G7 crush our lives and those of all the peoples of the world in their pointless battles for power. Or we can take back what is rightfully ours: the choice to decide how to live our own lives. This choice depends on us all!
