manchester events on 14/07- g8 protest day!

Friday 14th July

Meet at Central Library at 6pm

Bring Flags, music, noisemakers, bicycles, skateboards (any human powered transport), friends ...

come- in fancy dress, in your pants, in a suit, in your birthday suit, in

your jeans..whatever!

14th July has been declared a global day of action against the G8 so

protests against the G8 will be taking place all over the world.

(see the pga's website for callout here:

http://nadir.org/nadir/initiativ/agp/g82006/global_action_day.html)

The G8's announced agenda shows power and climate change as being at the top. In Manchester we want to protest the G8 whilst showing that we

already have one solution: bikes not pollution!

Last years G8 critical mass in manchester had over 160 riders..come along and make this one even bigger!

After the ride we are having a fundraising gig at Fuel in Withington to

raise money for the manchester neighbourhood at the camp for climate

action this summer.

Friday 14th July

7.30pm at Fuel, Wilmslow Road, Withington M16

An evening of musical delights with a variety of local performers. Swing, folk and folk-punk- and people playing bicycles (whatever genre that fits into!)

also showing short independent films about climate change

£3 suggested donation

The manchester neighbourhood are running a bicycle library at the camp and some of the money raised will go to help this. If you have a spare bike or spare time please get in touch: bikes@climatecamp.org.uk
