Shut Them Down! is an essential collection of reflections on the movement against the 2005 G8 summit in Gleneagles, Scotland. As well as action stories from the frontlines of resistance to the summit, there are detailed accounts of how various aspects of the mobilization were organized, and analysis of the lessons to be learned. But Shut Them Down!'s relevance extends far beyond the Gleneagles experience. It addresses fundamental issues such as the nature of openness and 'horizontality', and the limitations of the 'activist' identity. Contributors include David Holloway, Starhawk and over 30 others.
