PUBLIC RALLY and MARCH G8 & G20

1:00 PM
Queen*s park -Toronto

PeopleFirst! We Deserve Better!
WOMEN”S RIGHTS! GOOD JOBS! ROBIN HOOD TAX! END POVERTY! STOP GLOBAL WARMING!

The June 26 rally and March will be an opportunity for Canadians to speak out on priorities that industrialized nations should adopt on economic recovery, environment and human rights, decent and green jobs, equality and social protection, as well as universal access for AIDS.

Decisions taken by the G8 and G20 governments have a direct impact on millions of lives in Canada and around the world. The rally will have participation from civil society and labour organizations as well as individuals representing a cross-section of communities. With maternal health being one of the key issues of the G8 G20 discussions the march will be lead by women! It will be important to have as many women as possible join the march!
