Bikisha Media Collective at 2001 Gothenburg anti-EU, anti-Bush protests

Two members of the Bikisha Media Collective (BMC) attended the GBG 2001/ Gothenburg ( Sweden) protests against the European Union (EU) summit, and against the visit of US president George Bush.  Riots and mass arrests were also a feature of the event, although most actions were peaceful.

Participating in the 12-17 June programme organised by the revolutionary syndicalist Swedish Workers Central Organisation (SAC) alongside activists from Bangladesh, Chile, Mexico, Nepal and Siberia, the BMC duo addressed a press conference on Wednesday 13th, gave a session that afternoon on “After apartheid: working class struggle against neo-liberalism in South Africa,” and also were key to the Friday 15th “Red+Black Meeting: what do the anarcho-syndicalists want?”  Naturally they were also active in the protests.
