Peoples Convergence: A week of symposiums, workshops, idea sharing, marches, film screenings, and other creative events, November 8 -16 in Brisbane.
Visioning Another World: The G20 Peoples Summit will be a three-day festival of symposiums, idea-sharing, art, creative activities, education and action. It will take place in various location in Brisbane November 12-14, before the G20 Leaders Summit.
This will be followed by two days of creative action, education and solidarity while the G20 Leaders Summit is taking place, including the Peoples Rally and March on November 15.
The First Nation’s Decolonisation Before Profit Program of events will run through the week Nov 8 – Nov 16 and will include a Global First Nations Conference – November 15-16 and an Eco-Village forum space. See: http://brisbaneblacks.com/g20/program/
The decisions made by the G20 affect us all. They are the reason we have to campaign to save forests, stop coal and CSG mining, protect the reef, oppose GMOs and food irradiation, oppose war games and militarism, fight for workers’ rights, demand equality, address colonisation, etc etc.
We invite all community groups and individuals to join us over the next 6 months in responding to the G20 through collaborative education, media production, action planning, alternative forum development and more!
Join us! Another world is possible. What it looks like is up to us!
