On April 2nd the leaders of the twenty most economically powerful states in the world will meet at the G20 summit in London to discuss responses to the current financial crisis. Despite the evident and foreseeable failure of the current economic model, world leaders are responding by trying to preserve the system that is responsible for them. Rather than producing solutions aimed at helping the majority of the world’s population, the G20 will seek to preserve the borders which divide the rich and the poor.
Many people from all over the world will be mobilising to challenge the legitimacy of the G20 and physically oppose those policies which put the needs of profit before the needs of people. In the build up to the summit there’s a week of massive actions. Oxfam will be providing transport down to London on Saturday 28th for the huge march called by the TUC and major NGOs.
Following this in the lead up to the summit there’s going to be conferences, street theatre, demos, direct actions, camps, blockades….. the city will be coming alive. So we’ll hopefully be providing accommodation for those who want to stay down for the fun.
We invite all those interested in attending the protests and actions in London to come and help organise with us. We can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Next meeting to discuss events will be 5th March in the Manchester university students union, meeting room 1 starting at 7pm prompt.
We hope to see you there
