The Council of Canadians will be putting the issues of global trade and economic justice in the spotlight Friday, June 25 at a major public forum called Shout Out for Global Justice!

Tickets are going fast, so get yours today by contacting the Box Office at 416-872-4255 or visiting the Massey Hall website at www.masseyhall.com .
After the University of Toronto decided last week to shut down its St. George campus, including Convocation Hall where Shout Out for Global Justice! was set to take place, the Council was forced to find a new location for this high-profile event. We were thrilled to learn that historic Massey Hall was available, located just blocks from the established security zone for the G20 summit allowing our voices to Shout Out even closer to the sequestered leaders.
All the details are now in place and the Council’s exciting Shout Out for Global Justice! will go on at Massey Hall, located at 178 Victoria Street in Toronto, Ontario. The evening starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $20 for non-Council of Canadians members (and include a one-year membership) and $14 for Council of Canadians members. Make sure you get your tickets today!
The event will also be video streamed live on the internet with the support of rabble.ca. Many Council chapters across the country are organizing community events with local speakers and panels as part a cross-Canada Shout Out.
