Anti-capitalists gear up for g8 protests

Anti-capitalists have been gearing up for the protests against the G8 Summit with Mayday actions across the country. The focus was on Primark and other businesses profiting from the global slave labour system which led to the death of 700 people in Bangladesh. There were angry protests in central London, Hackney, Lewisham, Birmingham, Brighton and Bristol, with the clear message going out that the disaster was not an accident but the inevitable consequence of the callous capitalist system. Stop G8 is holding another organising meeting in London on May 25 and May 26, before the big week of action in the capital from June 10 to June 14, featuring the #J11 Carnival Against Capitalism.

On May 1 in London, the traditional Mayday march from Clerkenwell Green to Trafalgar Square was followed up by demonstrations against the slave labour trade that left 700 dead in Bangladesh.

Activists from the Stop G8 Network held a series of loud and angry protests against Mango, Primark and Benetton stores in Oxford Street. Each of these companies is known to have sourced their clothes from the Rana Plaza factory. Protesters entered the shops and chanted about the continued exploitation of workers in Bangladesh and elsewhere.

Many leaflets were handed to people in the heaving shopping district and there was considerable interest and support. Most shoppers were deterred from entering the shops due to the large number of police and protesters standing in front of the entrances. The protesters emphasised that the disaster is just the latest incident in a series of such tragedies and that callous disregard for workers is part and parcel of global capitalism.

There were further protests against Primark in Hackney, Lewisham and Birmingham. In Bristol, the May Day Rally saw a large Red and Black presence leading march through the centre. The march stopped outside Primark and called for solidarity with Bangladeshi garment workers who died in the Rana Plaza factory. After the rally in Castle Park the Radical Workers block returned to Primark. Here they blockaded the entrance and turned many shoppers away., blockading the entrance and turning many shoppers away.
