Description

Black and white, digital image. English text reads: "G8 Summit: a private party - each year the leaders of the world's eight most industrialized countries meet to craft their agenda for the rewt of the planet - they are few... - Crash the G8 bash! - Global solidarty: an open invitation - our liberation is interconnected from wherever you are...realizee grassroots power and take action to confront global tyranny! - We are many!

Imagery includes 8 ghoulish looking diners - each representing a country of the G8 - sitting at a round table. They appear celebratory as they slice up an earth-shaped cake. Meanwhile, two personified creatures (possibly a locust and raccoon) lurk behind a curtain, peering to the table as if plotting an attack.

With text translated into seven languages, this poster was designed in 2008 to help build momentum for worldwide solidarity actions during the Group of 8 counter summit in Hokkaido, Japan
