From The Socialist newspaper, 22 June 2001

After Gothenburg...

Anti-Capitalist Resistance Continues

GEORGE BUSH came to see the European Union (EU) leaders the day before their Gothenburg summit to sell "Son of Star Wars" to them and tell them once again that his government does not care about the Kyoto protocol.

In response, up to 15,000 took part in the "Bush not welcome" demo on 14 June. And 20,000 took to the streets in the demonstrations held the day after Bush left against the EU and the European Monetary Union (EMU).

Then, as many as 25,000 were on the last international demonstrations against the EU summit's neo-liberal agenda.

These mainly peaceful mass protests were the biggest demonstrations held in Sweden for many years.

Yet, throughout Europe the clashes around the Gothenburg EU summit - where the police shot three people - have been utilised to unleash a propaganda barrage against the growing anti-capitalist movement in general and socialists in particular.

Wild and undefined accusations of being "anarchist" are being hurled around completely indiscriminately against anyone who dares to challenge the rule of the giant corporations.
