Report of the infopoint
Call:G8; Call for global infopoint network
In conjunction to the alternative media material that has already started coming out of Germany about whats going on, We want to encourage the setting up of a network of nodal infopoints outside of the protest area for people in their local area to be able to go to and find out first hand whats going on.
