Alternatives to the G20 – Newspaper Fundraiser
In less than two months Brisbane will be hosting the annual G20 summit where the leaders of twenty of the world’s most powerful economies will meet to push ahead with the global economic growth agenda. At a time of dangerous climate change, rapidly increasing inequality and poverty, gross exploitation of Indigenous peoples and their lands and severe environmental degradation globally, issues of environmental and social justice are not on the G20 agenda.
In response a diverse range of community groups and members are putting on a range of creative actions and forums to occur in the week leading up to and during the G20 summit. This includes the Brisbane Aboriginal Sovereign Embassy’s Decolonisation Before Profit program and Global First Nations Conference (see: http://brisbaneblacks.com/g20/program/), and the G20 Peoples Convergence and Visioning Another World: The G20 Peoples Summit (see: http://briscan.net.au/).
To raise public awareness of the broad reaching impacts of the G20 a one-off “Alternatives to the G20” newspaper publication is being put together. The newspaper will present articles on a range of social, environmental, political and economic issues to highlight the effects of the G20 on people and planet. It will also include perspectives to contribute towards creatively visioning alternatives to the G20’s agenda of economic growth at all costs.
To make this project a reality and have this publication circulating during the G20 funds need to be raised to cover the printing costs. This is a call out for donations of any amount, to contribute towards making this project a reality.
