The People's Street Summit
Bringing their Summit to the Ground. Join us for a rally in opposition to the G8 University Summit.
The summit's theme is "Universities and Communities: transition to a sustainable future". We believe that the oil and pharmaceutical industries are the problem. We believe universities are serving the interest of corporations, not communities. We believe that education should be emancipatory, free for everyone and promote freedom, equality, social and environmental justice, not the neo-liberal trade agenda, the free market or criminal industries. We will build the momentum for a movement for emancipatory community education, Indigenous Sovereignty and Self-Determination, Environmental and Climate Justice, Migrant Justice and an End to War and Occupation, Income Equity and Community Control over Resources, Gender Justice and Queer and disAbility rights.
While the university is with the elites, we will be on the streets!
Education should empower communities, not corporations!
