An Alternative People's Summit on the Crisis

On 15th November, the leaders of the 20 most powerful nations will meet in Washington to decide global economic priorities. Instead of their agenda of bailing out the banks and shoring up profits, the Alternative People's Summit will call for a united campaign to save jobs, defend living standards and oppose war. The platform speakers will be joined by activists engaged in issues such as housing, climate change, pensions, students, defence of the NHS, global poverty and union rights, to make the People's Summit a tribunal of the system that has failed the vast majority of the world's population. Called by UCU London Region and supported by FBU London Region, John Denton (CWU London Secretary pc), Mark Baulch (CWU NEC pc), People before Profit Charter and activists in the FBU, PCS, NUT and other unions.
