“Do not be afraid, because we come as friends”, says Patrick Bond, economist and activist from South Africa, when he talks about coming to Hamburg to protest against the G20 summit. “We want to take away the fears of us, which are fueled by politics”. In the letter co-written by him to Hamburg’s civil society it says: “The true invaders and destroyers of our cities are the G20 and we must protect ourselves together. If they want a democracy-free zone in Hamburg, we want a G20-free Hamburg.”

Already for months people from countries like Argentina, France and Ireland plan their journey to Hamburg. The International No G20 coordinating groups clarifies that they want to protest in July in solidarity with the people living in Hamburg: with respect for their neighborhoods and the inspiring activities within them, that emanates solidarity and freedom. Bettina Müller from Attac Argentina says: “I am looking forward to Hamburg and its people and hope that one gets to know each other during the protests”.

The International No G20 group is part of the global preparation of protests against the G20 summit in Hamburg and is composed of different groups from Europe and the world. This includes for example Attac Argentina, the network “BRICS from below”, social centers from Italy, left groups from Eastern Europe and human rights groups. The protest plans include a congress, blockades, actions of mass civil disobedience and a big demonstration.

Pressemitteilung des Internationalen No G20 Vorbereitungskreises 17.05.2017

Fürchtet euch nicht, denn wir kommen als Freunde,“ sagt Patrick Bond, Wirtschafts-Professor und Aktivist aus Südafrika, wenn er davon spricht nach Hamburg zu kommen, um gegen den G20 Gipfel zu protestieren, „Wir wollen die Ängste vor uns nehmen, die durch die Politik geschürt werden“. In dem von ihm mit verfassten Brief an die Hamburger Stadtgesellschaft steht: „Die wahren Eindringlinge und Zerstörer unserer Städte sind die G20 und wir müssen uns gemeinsam vor ihnen schützen. Wenn sie eine demokratiefreie Zone in Hamburg wollen, wollen wir ein G20- freies Hamburg.“

Schon seit Monaten planen viele Menschen aus Ländern wie Argentinien, Frankreich und Irland die Anfahrt nach Hamburg. Der Internationale No G20 Vorbereitungskreis stellt klar, dass sie in Solidarität mit den Stadtbewohnenden gemeinsam im Juli protestieren wollen: Mit Respekt vor den Kiezen und den inspirierenden Aktivitäten der Nachbarschaften, die Solidarität und Freiheit ausstrahlen. Bettina Müller von Attac Argentinien sagt: „Ich freue mich auf Hamburg und die Menschen und hoffe, dass man sich während der Proteste näher kennenlernt.“

Der Internationale No G20 Kreis ist Teil der globalen Vorbereitung gegen den G20-Gipfel in Hamburg und setzt sich aus unterschiedlichen Gruppen aus Europa und der Welt zusammen. Das sind zum Beispiel Attac Argentinien, das Netzwerk “BRICS from below”, soziale Zentren aus Italien, linke Gruppen aus Osteuropa sowie auch Menschenrechtsgruppen.

Aus aller Welt, gemeinsam gegen die G20!

Offener Brief an die Menschen in Hamburg

Liebe HamburgerInnen, moin. Ihr fragt euch sicherlich, wer euch hier schreibt.

Wir sind Menschen aus ganz Europa und der Welt, BürgerInnen oder AktivistInnen aus vielen unterschiedlichen Netzwerken und aus allen Gesellschaftsschichten. Wir sind unterschiedlichen Alters und haben unterschiedliche politische Überzeugungen.

Wir sind die Menschen, die sich euch in eurer Stadt Hamburg den Protesten im Juli anschließen wollen, wenn sich die Führer der 20 mächtigsten Länder im Herzen der Stadt treffen werden. Ihr habt wahrscheinlich hauptsächlich von den PolitikerInnen und den Medien von uns erfahren, die euch Angst vor uns machen wollen, wenn sie uns als “Störenfriede” und “Krawallmacher” bezeichnen. Mit diesem Brief wollen wir euch aber die Hand reichen, denn wir sind alle der gleichen globalen Politik ausgesetzt, die auf genau solchen Gipfeln beschlossen wird; wo einige Wenige denken, dass sie über all unsere Leben entscheiden können.

SIAMO MOLTE E MOLTI, FACCIAMO SENTIRE FORTE LA NOSTRA VOCE, IL MONDO CI ASCOLTERÀ!

Luglio 2017, il vertice del G20 ad Amburgo. Con i venti leader più potenti del mondo, in un mondo in profonda crisi e turbolenza, sotto gli occhi dei media globali. Ma non si troveranno là solo i potenti. Faremo in modo che siano ascoltate le voci delle diverse lotte di tutto il mondo: le voci contro la disuguaglianza sociale, l’austerità e lo sfruttamento; le voci contro la guerra e la catastrofe ecologica; le nostre voci per la solidarietà, per scelte e visioni altre. Sappiamo che possiamo far sentire le nostre voci, se sapremo parlare con voce forte e chiara. Seattle 1999 e Genova 2001, le mobilitazioni globali contro le guerre nel Golfo, le piazze di Madrid, Istanbul, New York e Lagos, Blockupy 2015 a Francoforte e il movimento globale delle donne lo hanno dimostrato.

Report from the International No-g20 preparatory Meeting

Report from the International No-g20 preparatory Meeting, April 7 in Hamburg:

60 activists from various networks and European regions confirm their commitment to push for the transnationalization of the G20 protest and coordinate our efforts:

We are loud we are many, the world will hear us!

On April 7, 2017, we met in Hamburg for the first Inter/Transnational No-g20 meeting to map, prepare and organize for the transnational mobilization and participation in the broad protests against the G20 summit that will take place July 7 & 8 in the midst and centre of Hamburg. We met for a day long face to face meeting after three months of communicating mainly through mails and a mailing list, by meeting in conference calls or at other (transnational) meetings.

We had a full day of productive discussions on the significance of an inter-/transnational convergence of struggles, protests and resistance in this historical moment. Continue reading “Report from the International No-g20 preparatory Meeting”
