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.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable. has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
