The G8 and the G20 are coming to Toronto this month and they are effectively shutting down the city (yes, that’s bad news). For a good spin on things, The People’s Summit will be happening as a “counter summit” to the G20’s and bring people from many walks of life together to make the world a better place.
The 2010 Peopleâ€™s Summit is civil societyâ€™s alternative â€œcounter Summitâ€ to the G8 and G20 Summits happening in Huntsville and Toronto this June 25th â€“ 27th. Together we will create a space where diverse local and international movements can democratically organize to advocate and educate for global justice.
Community organizers, activists, non-governmental organizations, independent media, workers, impacted communities, artists â€“ the people â€“ converge this June to work together to educate, empower and ignite the positive change we would like to see in our world.
