The G20 Peoples' March -- November 15.


The G20 Peoples' March is about challenging the G20 agenda - cuts to health, welfare, education, working rights and conditions, degradation of our natural environment, enriching the rich and impoverishing everyone else. 

 And as police-state laws threaten our civil liberties across the country, now more than ever we need to stand up to the intimidation and assert our right to protest.

 This Saturday November 15 at 11am, Roma Street Forum, Brisbane City, let's come together to assert that another world is possible, and we're going to be part of making it happen!

In November, the G20 Summit of World Leaders will be meeting in Brisbane. In this context, it is important for us to understand the functioning of these institutions and the role they play in the maintenance of international capitalism. What are the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank and the World Trade Organisation?

Come down to the Brisbane Activist Centre for a discussion about the nature, structure and role of the world's multinational institutions.
