G8/G20 CONVERGENCE 2010


G8/G20 CONVERGENCE 2010
ALL OUT AGAINST THE G8/G20!
25-27 June 2010

*Available in English, Spanish, French, and Italian.

The Group of 8 Leaders and the Group of 20 Leaders are meeting in Ontario, from the 25th to the 27th of June, 2010. On these same dates we are calling for a people’s convergence in Toronto. These gatherings are about trying to fix capitalism, a system that cannot be fixed; about creating unsustainable trading solutions to ecological catastrophe; about ensuring the continued exploitation of people of colour and the South and about celebrating war as a means to create puppet allies and maintain imperialist power. This is a call to disrupt and shut down the places, the systems and the ideas that exploit and exclude us.

In their place, let us creatively build the world we wish to live in. A world with self-determination for indigenous peoples; climate and environmental justice; income equity and community control over resources; migrant justice and an end to war and occupation; gender justice, queer and disAbility rights. On these days, we call for Days of Action across the world that    showcase solutions from the ground up.
