The 2010 People’s Summit: “Building a Movement for a Just World”
The G8/G20 Leaders Summits are set to take place in and around Toronto, Ontario, Canada from June 25-27, 2010. The actions and policies of the G8/G20 have significant and often devastating impacts on communities the world over.
These Leaders Summits create an opportunity for us – the legitimate, diverse movement that includes community based organizations, non-governmental organizations, workers, artists, alternative media, directly impacted communities, and civil society at large – to teach and learn, be empowered, and demand the systemic change the world needs.
In resistance to the G8/G20 meetings occurring in June, activists in Toronto are hosting the legitimate People's Summit to occur the week prior (June 18-20, 2010).
From June 18th-20th activists, NGOs, trade unionists, artists, impacted communities, and anyone else who’s interested will gather in Toronto to talk together, create alliances, educate each other, empower ourselves, and organize for a week of resistance leading up to mass protests planned to confront the G8/G20 Leader’s Summit from Friday June 25 to Sunday June 27, 2010.
