People's Summit Against the G20!
On November 15th, President Bush hosted a closed-door summit for the G20 leaders in Washington, DC to address the global financial crisis, but we know that this crisis cannot be fixed by those who created it.

Global Justice Action hosted a People’s Summit as our answer: A weekend of events to protest the G20 and show real alternatives to capitalism. Our events include a People’s Banquet (a gala for rest of us outside a White House gala for the G20), a Carnival Against the G20 (a rally and march to celebrate the passing of the free market), and a People’s Forum (popular education on the crisis, presentation of alternative visions for the future, and discussion about how we’re going to change the world).

Below is our call to action signed onto by local, national, and international organizations participating in various events during the People’s Summit.

On November 15th, President Bush hosted a summit for the G20
leaders to address the global financial crisis, but we know that this
crisis cannot be fixed by those who created it.

We demand:

New Ideas: Now is the time to present alternative visions for society.
Real changes must be structural so that this cannot happen again.

People Over Profit: We need a world that puts peoples’ needs first, that respects and promotes human rights and social and environmental justice. We need decent jobs, sustainable livelihoods, and essential services such as health care, education, housing, water services and clean energy.

Democracy Now: Give people power over global resources and the decisions
that affect their lives.

Now is the time to show that another world is possible!
We want a People’s Consensus, not Washington Consensus
