About

The Anarchist Action Network (previously known as StopG8) has existed as a network in the UK since July 2012. It initially came together both to mobilise against last years G8 summit, and to help re-build an anti-capitalist movement in the UK and beyond. In January 2014 StopG8 adopted its new name – the Anarchist Action Network, and the Network was joined by Stop NATO Cymru, the South Wales network opposed to the NATO summit in Newport in September 2014. The Anarchist Action Network will shortly be putting on a programme of events on Anarchism and anticapitalist struggle, and working with Stop NATO Cymru to support the mobilisation against the forthcoming NATO summit. The Anarchist Action Network respects diversity of tactics and has adopted the PGA Hallmarks.
