the Disillusioned kid: Round-Up

Red Pepper provide an interesting run through of the responses by various NGOs and campaign groups to the much hyped G8 communique. Unsurprisingly many of them are critical. Some vociferously so.

The G8 Legal Support Group (who produced some incredibly helpful literature for those involved in actions during the G8) have a statement on policing during the summit which is similarly unfavourable, but in my opinion entirely accurate.

Over the Atlantic, Doug Ireland writes (in a post discovered via Empire Notes) about the "Palestinian Gandhis" of Bilin. A fascinating and inspiring story largely ignored by the corporate media who's coverage of the Israel-Palestine conflict rarely seems to get beyond reportage of suicide bombings.

Meanwhile, Dead Men Left reports that French farmer and "anti-globalisation activist" José Bové, famous for dismantaling a McDonalds in protest against US trade subsidies, is considereing standing for the French Presidency.

Elsewhere, I was relieved to discover via In The Water that the Zapatista Red Alert, which I posted about a while back, has been lifted.
