Another World is Possible! - Festival of Alternatives to the G8

category antrim | summit mobilisations | event notice author Tuesday May 21, 2013 19:30author by Ciarán - B&DTUC Report this post to the editors

The amount of money used to bail out failed banks would have ended world hunger for 50 years. This is the world presided over by G8 leaders who meet every year to co-ordinate how to continue failed policies which favour the 'have yachts' over the 'have nots'. We say 'Another World is Possible' and over five days in June our Festival of Ideas hopes to challenge and inspire those who want to fight for it.
