G8/G20: the Summit and the People’s Summit

While world leaders will meet at the G8/G20 Summit June 25 to 27, the People’s Summit will be held June 18 to 20. However, the voices of ordinary people will be heard at both summits, and the PSAC is providing bus transportation from various Ontario locations to Toronto on June 26.

More information about PSAC bus transportation is available at the Alliance website. To learn about the activities planned for the People’s Summit, visit their website at

The Canadian Labour Congress (CLC) will be active at both summits. On June 19, the Congress will host an open forum focused on the global economic crisis and the response of the International Labour Organization: the Global Jobs Pact.

On June 26, the CLC will join other groups at Queens Park in Toronto for a rally which is expected to attract thousands.

For those who cannot make it to Toronto, some events will be accessible on the web. The June 25 Shout Out for Global Justice event at Massey Hall will be live streamed by Rabble, and you can follow events on Twitter ( @peoplessummit ) and facebook (The 2010 People’s Summit: “Building a Movement for a Just World” ) as well.
