G8 – The Battle of the Oatfield

(30 min) 

In July of 2005 the G8 summit was held outside Edinburgh. The G8 is the annual meeting with the leaders of the 8 most powerful nations on Earth, to discuss their plans to control the planet. Various movements came together from all over Europe and the world, to attempt to raise their voices and call attention to the injustices perpetuated by the G8 leaders. 

The video shows the highlights of the morning road blockades and the march to Gleneagles hotel where the leaders were barricaded in and surrounded by riot police. The Infernal Noise Brigade from Seattle, along with the Clandestine Insurgent Revolutionary Clown Army (CIRCA) added music, colour and humour to the protests. 

Covered are the two separate clashes between riot police and protestors tearing down the metal fence barricades, followed by an oatfield occupied by clowns, puppets, anarchists and angels, being chased by police on horses, dogs and helicopters.

Anarchy, comedy and power to the people.
