Anarchist Golfers Vow to Disrupt the G8
Posh golf resort a fitting location for G8 summit
From July 6-8th, eight rulers plan to fortress themselves off from
reality in the plush surroundings of Gleneagles. The luxurious club has
long been the playground of the well-connected and privileged, and is
widely viewed as an amusing and revealing location for the G8 summit.
People from across the world are vowing that the well-tended lawns of
Gleneagles will not be a protest-free zone. The surreal bubble in which
the elite have retreated will be punctured.
The PGA will be holding the Peoples' Open Golfing Tournament which
culminates on July
7th, and plan to be playing golf on the
sumptuous greens of Gleneagles during the G8 schmooze-fest. The
tournament is open to all freedom loving individuals who reject
everything the G8 stands for (except golf). The golfing event promises
the opportunity to brush shoulders with influential and dapper
anarchists from around the world. It goes without saying that golf
skills are not required. In fact, golf skills may even be frowned upon.

We encourage the formation of autonomous golfing blocs for participation
in the PGA Gleneagles tournament. The rules of the game will be decided
during the convergence, currently being organised by the Dissent Network.
If you wish participate, join our email list at.
We are also encouraging the construction of a G8 crazy golf game.
If you or your group can construct a crazy golf piece, let us know.
Ideas include a large sand-trap in the
shape of Iraq, or a pond in the shape of Guantanamo Bay. We also need
the following items:
Please let us know if you can bring any of them.
- Plastic balls, beach balls, stuffed animals, and other stuff to hit
- Stuffing (from old furniture) to pad golf clubs
- Heads of the world leaders, or some such thing for the holes
- Golf clothes (long socks, baggy trousers, ugly shirts)
- Black gaffer tape
- golf flags and poles
- Your imagination
- high powered binoculers
