PLAN B is a call for decentralised resistance to the G20 Australia Summit being held in Brisbane in November 2014, where many of the world’s most powerful people will meet to make decisions that dramatically affect us all.
We are calling for people to form affinity groups in their home towns and to autonomously organise decentralised direct action across the country against the G20 and the capitalist occupation of our lives.
We resist the G20 as it is a powerful symbol of the undemocratic nature of the global neo-liberal empire.
The G20 represents the continued dispossession of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people; it represents the maintenance of structural racism and white supremacy; it represents the system that ensures the continued subjugation of wom*n and LGBTIQ people; it represents the trashing of workers rights and the widening gap between rich and poor.
The G20 represents the expansion of the private prison system; it represents those who profit off the maintenance of the border and the concentration camps which incarcerate many who try to cross it.
The G20 represents environmental destruction; it represents the factory farms that imprison and torture animals everyday; it represents the invasion of public space by the corporations with their billboards and posters screaming at us to buy more shit we don’t need.
The G20 represents all that we struggle against everyday.
For this reason we are calling on people to disrupt, resist and obstruct the mechanisms of power which bolster the legitimacy of the G20.

We would like to acknowledge the First Peoples of this continent, whose sovereignties were never ceded, and pay our respects to all elders, past and present, and all ATSI people who continue to survive and resist neo-colonialism.
We pay our respects to the freedom fighters that have fought and continue to fight for country against the invading colonial forces since 1788.
We acknowledge the illegitimacy of the Australian nation state, which is foundationally based on the doctrine of terra nullius (empty land).
We also acknowledge the complicity of all non-Indigenous Australians in the dispossession, genocide and colonisation of the First Peoples – and acknowledge that simply by our presence on this continent, we benefit from colonisation.
