ShakeG8 – Bicycle Caravan against the G8 in Heiligendamm 2007

Highly motivated by a visit to an original “Lenin-Stalin” bar on the way to Bratislavlenina, we entered the city with a nice “dress-up and ring your bell” bike-party-caravan. A lot of people were waving and, due to our funny costumes, no car dared kick us from the street on our way to the anarchist info-shop.

The next day we re-organised and improved the trailer and enjoyed the comfort of a hot shower. In the evening we presented the bicycle caravan and discussed the ideas behind it with the local people. Afterwards, a lot of people came to have a cool party with a local sound system and fireshows.

On Wednesday afternoon some of the group went to a marginalised area of Bratislava and played with the children there whilst others joined an anti-G8 presentation with following discussion.

After the G8 info-event we offered workshops on different topics, for example, how to make paint bombs and how to make gold out of garbage. This was followed by a ska party.

On the two evenings about 50 people visited the anarchist info shop, a place many of them had never been before.

Hopefully our actions have helped support local struggles and make the info shop, which is situated in the outskirts of the city, more popular.
