Put People First G20 Counter Conference

Put People First G20 Counter Conference

Central Hall Westminster, SW1H 9NH

Put People First

In March, we marched in our tens of thousands to demand the G20 Put People First. Far from putting people first we’ve seen nothing but a tinkering around the margins followed by the return to business as usual.

On Nov 7, as the G20 returns to the UK, the agenda on the table nurses an already failed economic model back to life, whilst looking to stitch up an unjust international climate deal outside the UN process.

They bailed out the banks to the tune of billions, and now the only choice offered is between what cuts are made to pay for it.

Government intervention to create a Green New Deal is slipping off the agenda, and yet strong alliances are forming – for example environmentalists and trade unionists have been standing side by side at Vestas to save the UK’s largest wind turbine factory.

– In the run up to Copenhagen, how do we get a global agreement on climate that truly puts climate justice at its heart?
– How do we respond to the jobs crisis and growing poverty around the world
– How do we ensure the global green new deal the world needs?
– How we do we show that cuts are not the only option, and demonstrate what Putting People First really look like?

This counter-conference will bring together academics, activists, campaigners, unions, policy makers and YOU to share ideas on what the alternatives are to cuts, cuts and more cuts, and how we must organise across our issues, of jobs, justice and climate, to make the alternative the reality.
