G8/G20 Protest, June 18 27
The Group of 8 world Leaders and the Group of 20 Leaders are meeting in Ontario from June 25-27, 2010. And we need to get organized to send a message that privatization, trade liberalization and this economic system of greed is not working.
The actions and policies of the G8 and its member-states have made significant impact on millions of people around the world; this meeting in Toronto provides a unique opportunity for the community and labour to come together to educate, empower and ignite positive change to achieve a kind of world that we want and desperately need.
Join CUPE Ontario and members of the Toronto Community Mobilization Network, a group of grassroots community organizers, and their allies building a community mobilization leading up to and during the G8/G20 summit – 25-27 June 2010.
The days of action will be led by community-based organizations of people of color, indigenous peoples, women, the poor, the working class, queer and trans people and disabled people.
