Shut Them Down

Shut Them Down

The G8, Gleneagles 2005 and The Movement of Movements by David Harvie, Keir Milburn, Ben Trott and David Watts


More details


£3.21

Shut Them Down! is an essential collection of reflections on the movement against the 2005 G8 summit in Gleneagles, Scotland.

If you go to a demonstration and then go home, that’s something. But the people in power can live with that. What they can’t live with is sustained pressure that keeps on building, groups that keep on doing things, people that learn from the last time and do it better next time…

As well as action stories from the frontlines of resistance to the summit, there are detailed accounts of how various aspects of the mobilisation were organised, and analysis of the lessons to be learned. But Shut Them Down!’s relevance extends far beyond the Gleneagles experience. It addresses fundamental issues such as the nature of openness and ‘horizontality’, and the limitations of the ‘activist’ identity. Most important of all, Shut Them Down! poses the question: how can we take those worlds we glimpse in such moments and generalise them so that they make sense in the rest of our lives?
