Get ready to counter the G20!
Forget the G20 Help set a new agenda
As the G20 returns to Britain, the Put People First coalition is organizing a counter conference on Saturday 7th November at Central Hall Westminster 10.00am-5.30pm to coincide with the G20 finance ministers meeting.
The Put People First Conference rejects the G20's attempts to revive the
failed economic model that led to the current crisis. Instead it has an
alternative agenda that promotes jobs, justice and a safe climate. That puts
people before profits.
Space is limited for this free event - so make sure you sign up today:
Speakers include Lidy Nacpil (Jubilee South), Poul Nyrup Rasmussen (former Danish prime minister), Louise Plaatjes (UNI Africa), Vincent Dlamini (Swaziland Federation of Trade Unions), Jon Cruddas (MP), Billy Hayes (general secretary of CWU), John Hilary (War on Want), Neal Lawson (Compass), Hilary Wainwright (Red Pepper), Andrew Simms (new economics foundation) and many others.
After the event you are invited to join New Internationalist for a glass of wine, a shot of vision, and to help us launch two new NI books: People First Economics and The No-Nonsense Guide to Global Finance. Together these volumes give an accessible introduction to the murky world of international finance and present leading writers' big ideas for what an alternative might look like.
When? 5.30-8pm; Saturday 7th November.
Where? The Feathers pub, 18-20 Broadway, London (2 minutes walk from Central Hall Westminster).
See you there!
