Another World is Possible! - Festival of Alternatives to the G8
summit mobilisations |
Tuesday May 21, 2013 19:30 by Ciarán - B&DTUC
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.
